Apple and luxury fashion label Hermes partnered for the Apple Watch and the result is stunning.

Apple takes the Apple Watch to the next level. The partnership with Hermes takes the Apple Watch directly into the heart of luxury fashion. The Apple Watch Hermes edition look gorgeous, especially the Double Tour.

Hermes created three leather bands for the Apple Watch Hermes collections: Single Tour, Double Tour and Cuff.

"At Hermès, we strive to provide our clients with elegant, creative and functional objects for their everyday lives,” said Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Hermès’ executive vice president in charge of artistic direction. “What more contemporary and relevant expression of this principle could there be than this collaboration with Apple. We are strongly united by the same deeply held ideas and principles. I see it as the establishment of an alliance in excellence; like horse and carriage, a perfect team.”

The Single Tour with the 38 mm stainless steel case comes in fauve Barenia leather, noir box leather and capucine Swift leather, while the Single Tour with 42 mm stainless steel case comes in fauve Barenia leather and noir box leather.

The Double Tour pairs with the 38 mm stainless steel case and is available in fauve Barenia leather and bleu jean, capucine and etain Swift leather. The Cuff pairs with the 42 mm stainless steel case and is available in fauve Barenia leather only.

Across the collection, each stainless steel case features an etching of the Hermès signature and includes a customizable face with three exclusive dial designs inspired by Clipper, Cape Cod and Espace Hermès watches.

Apple Watch Hermès starts at $1,100 for the 38 mm stainless steel case with the Single Tour, $1,150 for the 42 mm stainless steel case with the Single Tour, $1,250 for the 38 mm stainless steel case with the Double Tour and $1,500 for the 42 mm stainless steel case with the Cuff.

The most expensive Apple Watch models with steel case sell for $1,049. The Hermes editions are adding a couple hundred Dollars. The focus is on female buyers. This is why two of the three Hermes edtions come with the small 38mm Apple Watch.

The collection will be available at select Apple retail stores, select Hermès stores, specialty stores and department stores beginning October 5 in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK and the US. 

We expect Apple to partner with more luxury fashion labels in the future. Apple Watch designed by Gucci, Prada, Tiffany, Burberry, Dior, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana could be in the works already.
