Apple-Watch-Hermes-

The Apple Watch Hermès collection, which got announced at the September 2015 media event, is now available at select retail locations in ten different style and size combinations. As first reported on by AppleInsider, sales are in-store only and unavailable online, with prices starting at $1,100.

Hermès is a Paris-based fashion label specializing in leather, lifestyle accessories, perfumery and luxury goods. The company is “dedicated to serving European noblemen” though its products are renowned around the world.

Each model in the collection consists of a stainless steel Apple Watch, a traditional Hermès-made leather band and exclusive watch faces with the Hermès logo just above the dial in one of three Hermès fonts. The watch itself has the Hermès name etched on its back.

Prices range from $1,100 to $1,500.

The collection is available in multiple colors and three different styles: Single Tour, Double Tour and Cuff. The $1,100 Single Tour buckle design includes the 42 mm stainless steel Apple Watch and the band in Fauvre and Noir colors. The 38-millimeter model is available in Fauve, Noir and Capucine leather bands.

The Cuff edition sports a much larger leather band and is only available in Fauve color. The flagship Double Tour comes in the 38-millimeter size and with a leather band that wraps around the wrist twice, available in Fauve, Etain, Capucine and Bleu Jean colors.

In North America, the Apple Watch Hermès collection is only available in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Toronto. At its ‘Hey Siri’ event, the Cupertino firm launched new Apple Watch bands and all-new gold and rose gold anodized models for the Apple Watch Sport.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Apple’s Chief Design Officer, Jony Ive, described the Hermès partnership as “something highly unusual for Apple to do—to talk about an unannounced project.”

“I’ve been at Apple 23 years and this is conspicuous and singular. I’ve never known anything like this,” he said.

Pierre-Alexis Dumas, creative director for Hermès, said the Apple Watch partnership gives the 178-year-old brand the chance to prove it can be contemporary.

“We are a new tradition and an age-old tradition, and we meet at the center of the arch.”

      No offense but it may be a knock off. However, ive done the same thing. Because i wanted another herme “style” band. And apple isnt selling them separately. So ive had no option but to seek a third party. I know my band is a knock off. But then again i dont care for the name herme on it… I simply want the style.

        I’m sure he already knew it was a knockoff when he mentioned ‘Chinese’ website.

      Hey, i love the look of the cuff strap, what chines website did you use?

    Just get on amazon, you’ll save money, and still have the style. If you want it for both style and brand, give apple a few months and you’ll be able to buy it separately. But i do feel you on you position. Because i am an early adopter my self.

    Just dumb. The watch will soon be useless. It’s like buying a luxury case for a 6+. You WILL change watch and so band.
