Apple officially launches Hermès Watch collection, with options starting from $1100

If you haven’t yet found your perfect Apple Watch strap among the company’s own offerings or the numerous third-party options, Apple has today officially launched its partnership with French leather fashion company Hermès.

Uncompromising craftsmanship. Pioneering innovation. Groundbreaking functionality. Apple Watch Hermès is the culmination of a partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision and mutual regard. It is a unique timepiece designed with both utility and beauty in mind. With leather straps handmade by Hermès artisans in France and an Hermès watch face reinterpreted by Apple designers in California, Apple Watch Hermès is a product of elegant, artful simplicity — the ultimate tool for modern life.

Splashing out between $1100 and $1500 gets you a special version of the stainless steel Watch, with Hermès branding on the back, a number of special watch faces and a choice of three leather straps. Color options depend on the strap, some with suitably exotic-sounding names …

The Single Tour ($1100) is Hermès’ own take on the Classic Buckle, available in Noir or Fauvre (black or brown, for lesser mortals) in the 42mm version, while the 38mm model is also available in Capucine (red, to you or I).

The Double Tour ($1250) – available for the 38mm model only –  is the same thing, but wrapping around the wrist twice to provide the look of a bracelet as well as watch. Choose between gray, brown, red or blue – or Etain (not Cosmos Etain …), Fauve, Capucine and Bleu Jean.

The Cuff ($1500) is available only in brown, and can also be used to retrieve falcons (probably).
