Apple announced today a partnership with Hermes to create a special Apple Watch collection called Apple Watch Hermes. The new collection will feature three brand new bands and watch faces.
The three hand-stitched leather bands will be different styles: a leather double loop that wraps around the wrist twice, a sassy buckle and a classic-looking watch band. The three watch faces reflect Hermes’ branding.
The announcement came from Apple directly while Hermes is slow to make any statement. Both brands are coveted, desirable and profitable—it seems like the perfect marriage of technology and luxury.
Apple Watch Hermes will launch in October. It’s currently unknown how much Apple Watch Hermes will retail for.
