Apple has just announced a new partnership with French luxury house Hermès to create a new version of the Apple Watch collection called “Apple Watch Hermès.” The new collection will feature three brands, new bands, and watch faces, with the three leather bands coming in three different styles: a single leather loop, a double loop, and a cuff. Its user interface is in Hermès own font and lettering.
“When we created the Apple Watch, we knew we had to be an expression of your taste and style,” Jeff Williams, Apple’s senior Vice President of Operations, was quoted saying when announcing the new collection. Prices range from $1,100 for a single wrap strap to $1,500 for a watch with a full leather cuff, and the straps come in a variety of colors including black, red, tan, and blue. These watches will be limited to select retail stores and will come packaged in Hermès’ signature orange color boxes. There are many ways to customize the straps of bands of Apple watches. You can see a list of Apple watch bands online from many makers if users plan on going for another one. The new collection is prepared to launch in October.
