Apple Watch Hermès Collection Debuts in Select Apple & Hermès Retail Stores

Apple today officially launched the Apple Watch Hermès collection, which the two companies announced at the September 9 "Hey Siri" event. The collection includes three different strap options for customers -- Single Tour, Double Tour, and Cuff -- alongside a stainless steel Apple Watch casing. None of the new Hermès bands are available to purchase separately, however, and are only included in one of the collection's ten available models.

Hermès offers four different colored versions of the Double Tour band, including Bleu Jean and Etain gray, but only in 38 mm sizes. Those interested in the Single Tour can choose between three different colors, two of which come in both 38 mm and 42 mm, but one -- the red-tinted Capucine Leather band -- is only offered in 38 mm. Alternatively, the Cuff option is a bit more simplistic for buyers, due to its availability in one single color and size option: a Fauve Barenia Leather Band with a 42 mm casing size.

Anyone interested can expect to pay above the average price point for the Apple Watch's mid-tier stainless steel range: the Single Tour starts at $1,100, the Double Tour costs $1,250, and the Cuff comes in at the most expensive with a $1,500 price tag. No models in the collection will be made available online, but instead are set to be offered at select Apple Store and Hermès retail locations in North America, Europe, and Asia.

This is the problem when you marry geeks (predominantly male) with fashion. They don't understand the utility of the fashion world so they don't get why people would pay exorbitant prices for such a useless piece of leather when a piece of string would do just fine to tie their watch to their wrist.

In the case of Hermes, not only are you paying for the brand name, you are also paying for the genuine leather. Genuine 100% leather costs quite a bit. If you compare it to wood, it would be like getting 100% oak wood vs getting particle board.

Great for those that want it, I just would like the watch face, but have zero interest in the band.

I still don't know why anyone would want a watch band that wraps around their wrist twice. For me, the quicker I can put on, or remove my watch the better, and the lighter / less impactful the overall device is, even better!

Besides the bands, what is the difference that would justify the cost increase?
The Hermes Apple Watches range from $1,100 - $1,500.

I just glances over the Hermes web site and it seems like most of their analog watches range from $2,500 - $8,000.

I would call their Apple Watch a decrease, not an increase.
