The American tech company revealed a collaboration with the French luxury label to launch the Apple Watch, Hermès edition. To all those who felt too nerdy wearing the ultra hi-tech Apple Watch, the super stylish Hermès version will make you feel like the coolest kid in town.
Apple and Hermès are both leaders in their respective industry. Together, they have created a collection of the most enviable watches anyone could ever ask for. When Apple’s innovativeness meets Hermès’ uncompromising leather workmanship, an unexpected luxury product combining the best of both worlds happens. Apple even infused the elegance of Hermès into specially designed faces. To suit your personal preference, the 38mm and 42mm faces are paired with three different watch band options: single tour, double tour or cuff in various colour choices, all made of leather crafted by Hermès – in France, naturellement. The Parisian luxury brand is well aware that one size doesn’t fit all.
The Apple Watch Hermès collection will be available in selected countries, including Singapore, at Apple and Hermès stores on 5th October. Prices range from USD1,150 for a 38mm single tour to USD1,500 for 42mm cuff. And for that price, your Apple Watch Hermès products will come in a custom Hermès signature orange packaging.
Sure, it’s a hefty price for an Apple Watch. On the other side of the spectrum, there’s To-Do Watch, a low-fi “smart watch” that lets you go back to basics. If you’re a little tight on cash, go for it instead!
