Hermes Apple Watch
Apple partnered with one of my favorite brands to create a special Apple Watch collection called Apple Watch Hermes.
The new collection features three bands and watch faces. The watch bands will include the Double Tour, Single Tour, and the Cuff.
This is the Double Tour – “The extra-long band of the iconic Double Tour wraps elegantly twice around the wrist. Available in Fauve Barenia leather, paired with a 38mm stainless steel case. Bands in additional colors available separately.”
This is the Single Tour – “The classic Hermès design. The buckle recalls those on the straps of a horse’s girth, a nod to the equestrian heritage of Hermès. Available in Fauve Barenia leather with 38mm and 42mm stainless steel cases. Bands in additional colors available separately.”
This is the Single Tour Deployment Buckle – “A sleek twist on an Hermès classic. The hidden deployment buckle opens with a click of the two side buttons, and the band fits comfortably and securely. Available in Fauve Barenia leather, paired with a 42mm stainless steel case.”
This is the Double Buckle Cuff – “Inspired by a timeless Hermès sandal design, the Double Buckle Cuff beautifully frames the wrist. Available in Fauve Barenia leather, paired with a 38mm stainless steel case. Bands in two colors available separately.”
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 an Hermès watch face reinterpreted by Apple designers in California, Apple Watch Hermès is a product of elegant, artful simplicity — the ultimate tool for modern life.
The new Apple Watch Hermes collection will come in 10 unique options for customers to choose from, but the individual Hermes bands will not be sold by themselves. The Double Tour band will be available only in 38mm sizes, due to its more feminine look, and come in four different colors. Both 38mm and 42mm customers will be able to choose from the three color options of the Single Tour band, while the larger Cuff style is offered in one single 42mm leather option.
Pricing-wise, the Double Tour collection will cost $1,250, the Single Tour will cost $1,100, and the Cuff comes in at the most expensive mid-tier Apple Watch option yet: $1,500. The collection won’t be available to purchase online, and will follow the Apple Watch Edition route and will only be available at specific Apple and Hermes retail locations across the country in October.
The style I feel that looks best on my wrist is the Double Tour, and the two colors I wear the most are Feu (they actually do not make this in the Double Tour anymore) and Fauve.
