Apple Watch Hermès Series 2 Models Officially Launch Today

hermes-2Apple Watch Hermès Series 2 models, released on a pre-order basis last week, are now officially available for purchase both online and in stores.

Apple offers seven different Hermès models designed with handcrafted leather, including three with Single Tour bands, two with Double Tour bands, one with a Single Tour Deployment Buckle, and one with a Double Buckle Cuff. Prices range between $1,149 and $1,499 in the United States.

The new models serve as a refresh to last year's original Apple Watch Hermès lineup, released in October 2015. The new Series 2 models have the same custom Hermès watch face, but beyond that and the bands, the Hermès models are identical to regular Apple Watch models.


Apple Watch Hermès Series 2 models can be purchased through Apple's website in many countries, while in-store availability is limited to select Apple Store and Hermès locations in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Honolulu, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington D.C.

really, really puzzled by some of the responses to this Apple + Hermes collaboration.

Those of you taking the time to post your negative, needless opinions do know that these NICHE offerings are made for a certain ilk of folks, right?

You're obviously not the target consumer for the product.

I can not wait to receive mine.

I think the responses here make it clear that the average macrumors visitor may not be the exact target. The hardware and software is identical to the regular apple watch; you want access to that, just buy one of those. For a certain clientele who will be frequenting a store like Barney's, Bergdorf's, or the Hermes store, a few thousand dollars is milk money. And that's okay; it's not your money, so it's not your place to judge who gets to buy what. If that were a thing, couture, art, high end dining, niche fashion, luxury housing, boutique hotel, etc. would not be viable markets, but they are. I'm not planning on buying one of these Hermes watches, but a normal human reaction is to understand that there are people for whom 1) they are aethetically pleasing (which they are, 2) offer them a functionality they appreciate (i.e. the same that the cheaper watches offer, and 3) a small bump in price is reasonable to them. These straps are iconic Hermes designs dating back many decades, and to be able to offer that in CONJUNCTION with modern technology is a beautiful synthesis of aesthetic, fashion tradition, brand, and tech.

As for Hermes as a brand, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but their classic designs are iconic (watch straps, Birkin bag, scarves) and of high quality. Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Coach, Michael Kors it is not. Materials, stitching, handiwork, and legacy are vital to their brand, and yes, the price reflects that.

Hermes = Trash. Just like other overpriced brand names. But through marketing, somehow they persuade lots of customers to buy, buy, buy.

The simple sports band is quite elegant on the Apple Watch. That's where it starts and ends for me. None of this leather nonsense.

I was wanting a proper Mac Pro but now I've seen this I think I'll buy it instead. A Hermes Apple watch will really complete me as a person.
