The Apple Watch Hermès collection is available in a total of 10 different style and size combinations. The hardware itself is based on the stainless steel Apple Watch, but the device is paired with a leather band made by Hermès, a legendary Paris-based fashion brand.
In addition, the Apple Watch Hermès collection also comes with special clock faces based on the Hermès branding, which are exclusive to the hardware. Etched into the back of the hardware is the Hermès name as well.
The Single Tour buckle design comes in the colors Fauvre and Noir in the 42-millimeter size, while the 38-millimeter model is available in Fauve, Noir, and Capucine leather bands. Pricing on the Single Tour starts at $1,100.
Apple and Hermès are also offering a Double Tour design that can wrap around the wrist twice. It only comes in the 38-millimeter size, and is available with leather bands in Fauve, Etain, Capucine, and Bleu Jean. Double tour pricing starts at $1,250 U.S.
The tenth and final configuration is the Cuff model, which features a much larger leather band, and is only available in Fauve color in 42-millimeter size. It's priced at $1,500.
The Apple Watch Hermès collection is not available to purchase online, and can only be found in a handful of Apple and Hermès stores across the globe. For example, in North America, the Hermès variant of the Apple Watch is only available in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto.
