After unveiling the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, AirPods, Apple Watch Series 2, Apple introduces new Apple Watch Hermès styles and an expanded series of handcrafted leather bands in distinctive styles from French luxury brand. The watch face designs inspired by the iconic Clipper, Cape Cod and Espace Hermès models.
The expanded Apple Watch Hermès collection boasts a new style, the Double Buckle Cuff in Swift and Epsom calfskin leathers, a homage to Hermès sandal design by Pierre Hardy, creative director of Hermès shoes and jewelry. The band is available in new colors including Rose Jaipur, Étoupe and Bleu Agate. The new Single Tour Deployment Buckle band is a nod to a classic form, pairing the elemental simplicity of Hermès Barenia calfskin leather with the modernity of an Hermès hidden deployment buckle, which opens with a click of two side buttons. The classic Double Tour and Single Tour styles are sophisticated with new colors including Anemone.
New Apple Watch Hermès models pair with Apple Watch Series 2, which features GPS, water resistance 50 meters, a two-times-brighter display, a powerful dual-core processor and watchOS 3, and include an exclusive Hermès Sport Band in signature orange. The water resistant Sport Band is light and flexible for ultimate comfort and durability when working out, and is uniquely etched with Apple Watch Hermès.
The new styles of watch will be available beginning September 23 in Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Macau, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the UK and the US. Apple Watch Hermès is offered in two different case sizes, 38 mm and 42 mm. Prices start at $1,149 up to $1,499.
