Apple revealed an expansion to its collection of Hermès Apple Watch bands today, with four additional colors becoming available to buy separately later this month.

Apple's refreshed collaboration with the French fashion house brings sapphire blue, peacock blue, white and orange to the existing collection of Fauve (deer brown), Etain, Capucine, and Bleu Jean.

16457-13328-160407-Hermes-l
In the past, Hermès leather bands were only available if customers bought the watch and band at the same time, meaning Hermès bands will become available individually for the first time.

Availability varies with model size, so not all colors are available for both models of Apple Watch. Prices for the new bands will be $340 for the Single Tour (38mm and 42mm). The 42mm model will be available in sapphire blue, deer brown, fire orange and black, while the 38mm version can also be had in white and peacock blue.

The Double Tour is only available for 38mm Apple Watch models and sells for $490 in both regular and long strap lengths. Regular length will be available in white, peacock blue, sapphire blue, tin gray, deer brown and fire orange, while the longer length band comes in deer brown. The Cuff will sell for $690 and is limited to the 42mm size in deer brown.

The new editions will be available at Apple Stores and Hermès outlets from April 19. Apple has updated its website to reflect the change.

Apple-Watch-Hermes-Double-Tour-Straps
Apple and Hermès began offering the special edition Apple Watch Hermès via their online storefronts on January 22. Prior to that, the Apple Watch Hermès collection was only available for purchase in select boutique and Apple retail locations in major cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Milan, Paris, London, Tokyo, and Beijing.

I can get the same stuff off Amazon for $50.
It wouldn't be the same though. It might look similar but it wouldn't be made from the same quality leather or be as well made and the metal work will probably be inferior.

Whether or not that would justify the extra cost to you is another matter but some people will be prepared to pay the extra for the genuine article.

I love people coming to an Apple dedicated site, a brand known as 'premium' and pretty pricey.... and then moaning about prices.... Why not be happy that Apple is one of those brands not going for that 'race to the bottom' all the other brands are going for?

The 'we do it cheap(er)' way, is for brands without principle and creativity. And we have more then enough of those.
