Apple has announced the Apple Watch Hermès as the culmination of a partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision, and mutual regard. Those are the proclamations of the Cupertino-based technology company as it looks to get a bigger piece of the luxury pie.
Announced at the Apple event in San Francisco on Wednesday, the collaboration with the French label, famous for its leather handbags, silk scarves and perfumes, is its first collaboration with a fashion house. With elegance and artful simplicity featuring leather straps handmade by Hermès artisans in France and an Hermès watch face reireinterpreted by Apple designers in California, Apple Watch Hermès promises to be the ultimate tool for modern life. A new classic is born.
Three leather band options are available
Double Tour: The famous Hèrmes extra-long band of the iconic Double Tour wraps elegantly twice around the wrist.
Available in a 38mm stainless steel case with Hermès leather bands in four colors: Fauve, Etain, Capucine, and Bleu Jean.

Available in 38mm and 42mm stainless steel cases with Hermès leather bands in Fauve and Noir. The 38mm case is also available with a Capucine leather band.
