    My uncle gave me this Hermes watch. Help me?

    I just recently got this (older?) Hermes watch from my uncle, and it would be nice if I could get some help identifying it. This is my first watch, I'm very new to watches. Is it a male or female watch? Is it genuine? How much is it worth? The only thing I know about it is that it is mechanical, and I think it might be a older clipper? Thanks!

    Looks like a men's watch to me.
    Congrats!

    I misread this thread title as "My uncle gave me Herp--"

    All jokes aside, lovely watch. It's a men's piece. I can't say for sure if it is legitimate, but I don't see any glaring reason to doubt the authenticity, and the box looks good as well. We don't give valuations on this forum, but I would suggest bringing her in to an AD to verify the watch.

    Thanks for the responses. I decided to email Hermes about the serial to see if it's authentic, but like you said, I don't see why not. My main concern, being new to watches, is that I was wondering if it's okay to wear this watch casually in college. From what I've researched, this watch seems to be pretty expensive, and I was wondering if I would look like an ass wearing it? Thanks!

    Firstly, nice watch, and nice Uncle too!

    As far as wearing it, unless you look like "an ass" in general, with or without a watch, I'd say you are safe

    If you don't wear it casually, I sure as heck will. Send it to me, and I'll post telling everyone what a cool guy were are for gifting it to me.

    Congrats on the watch, wear it in good health.

    Watches are meant to be worn!
    Since it came from your Uncle, you should enjoy it.
    Congrats!

    Re: My uncle gave me this Hermes watch. Help me?

    Again, thanks for the compliments everyone. I noticed that it bears a striking resemblance to this watch on amazon

    Amazon.com: Hermes Clipper Steel Ladies Watch CL4.210.230/3758: Hermes: Watches

    On amazon it says that it is a woman's watch. I think the only differences are the face of mine is darker and mine is mechanical instead of quartz? (mine clicks, the one on amazon also doesn't have "automatic" on the face)

    I'm really hoping it's not a woman's watch!

    The one on Amazon is 24mm, that's absolutely tiny and would only suit a woman's wrist. How big is yours?
