Apple & Hermes launch new styles and colours for Apple Watch Hermes
September 8, 2016: With the launch of Apple’s new products on September 7, Apple and Hermès have introduced new Apple Watch Hermès styles and an expanded assortment of bands.
The collection pairs Apple Watch Series 2 with finely handcrafted leather bands in distinctive styles from Hermès, and features exclusive watch face designs inspired by the iconic Clipper, Cape Cod and Espace Hermès models.
“We are united by the same vision, the uncompromising pursuit of excellence and authenticity, and the creation of objects that remain as relevant and functional as they are beautiful. This is a new step of our attelage”, said Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Hermès’ executive vice president, in charge of artistic direction.
The expanded Apple Watch Hermès collection includes a new style — the Double Buckle Cuff in Swift and Epsom calfskin leathers, inspired by an archetypal Hermès sandal design by Pierre Hardy, creative director of Hermès shoes and jewelry. It elegantly frames the wrist in new colors including Rose Jaipur, Étoupe and Bleu Agate. The new Single Tour Deployment Buckle band is a reimagined take on a classic form, pairing the simplicity of Hermès Barénia calfskin leather with the modernity of an Hermès hidden deployment buckle. The classic Double Tour and Single Tour styles continue for fall in refreshed colors including Anémone.
New Apple Watch Hermès models pair with Apple Watch Series 2, which features GPS, water resistance upto 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.’
