This wide-carriage second style Hermes 3000, serial number 7031881, was made in 1971. See Georg Sommeregger's rundown of the Hermes 3000 variations here. This styling, says Georg, was introduced in 1966, although a new numbering sequence, starting in the 700,000 range, appears to have been introduced in 1971. See Bill MacLane's model in this range here. I am wondering whether my model was not made in Switzerland, since the models seen in Georg's and Bill's posts very evidently state, "Made in Switzerland".
