Uncompromising craftsmanship. Pioneering innovation. Groundbreaking functionality. Apple Watch Hermès is the culmination of a partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision, and mutual regard. It is a unique timepiece designed with both utility and beauty in mind. With leather straps handmade by Hermès artisans in France and Hermès watch faces reinterpreted by Apple designers, Apple Watch Hermès is a product of elegant, artful simplicity — the ultimate tool for modern life. And now, for the first time, the Hermès Apple Watch straps will be sold separately.
On April 19th, the French fashion house will release new Apple Watch straps in four different colors – Bleu Paon (Green), Bleu Saphir (Blue), Blanc (White) and Feu (Orange), the traditional Hermès color. Of course, you’ll be able to purchase these colors and other Hermès colors ( fauve, étain, capucine, and bleu jean) in a variety of styles. The Single Tour bands start at $340, Double Tour bands cost $490, and and Cuff bands cost $690.
You can pick up the Single Tour bands for the 38mm or the 42mm version of the Apple Watch. Double Tour bands are only available for the 38mm version, and Cuff bands are only available for the 42mm version.
The new colors are mostly designed for those looking to pick up Single or Double Tour bands for 38mm watches. You get fewer color options with a 42mm Single Tour band, and just one option (Deer Brown) for a Cuff band.
New straps will be available online through the Apple Store, as well as “selected” Apple retail stores.
