New band designed in black calfskin printed leather
French luxury fashion brand Hermès has collaborated with tech giant Apple on a limited edition Apple watch.
Available only in Hermès stores and online on www.hermes.com, the watch features a new band in black calfskin printed leather.
It is adorned with the Équateur tatouage scarf motif designed by artist Robert Dallet.
The brand has also joined forces with Apple on a number of designed watches based on the iconic Clipper, Cape Cod and Espace Hermès timepieces.
The culmination of a partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision, and mutual regard, Apple Watch Hermès is a unique timepiece designed with both utility and beauty in mind.
Some of the bands such as the Double Buckle Cuff is available in Etoupe Swift leather paired with a 38mm stainless steel case.
Another band is the Single Tour Deployment Buckle - an Hermès classic with a hidden deployment buckle that opens with a click of two side buttons. It is available in Fauve Barenia leather paired with a 42mm stainless steel case.
An extra-long band, the Double Tour, comes in Etoupe Swift leather or Fauve Barenia leather paired with a 38mm stainless steel case.
Lastly, the Single Tour band features a buckle inspired by the straps of a horse’s girth, a nod to the equestrian heritage of Hermès. It is available in Rose Jaipur Epsom leather paired with a 38mm stainless steel case; Fauve Barenia leather with 38mm and 42mm stainless steel cases and Feu Epsom leather with a 42mm stainless steel case.
Bands in additional colours are available separately.
Every Apple Watch Hermès includes an exclusive watch face you can customize with three typefaces, three numeral displays, and three complications — stopwatch, date, and world clock.
