Hermès and Apple Come Together to Unveil a Swanky Apple Watch
In a bid to combine fashion with high end technology, Apple and Hermes have come together for the sleekest gizmo on the block – the Apple Watch Hermès.
Technology is no more confined to the somber realm of cold metal and dull greys. It has joined forces with a fashion accessory that is more than about simple aesthetics. It is an expression of the wearer’s personality, in an eternal, timeless manner. Apple now allows tech-geeks to not only make the most of its technology, but also look stylish while at it. The style and design of the watch will also ensure the uniqueness of a piece of dressing all fashionistas crave.
Jonathan Ive, Apple’s chief design officer, comments on this union and says, “Both companies are motivated by a sincere pursuit of excellence and the desire to create something that is not compromised. Apple Watch Hermès is a true testament to that belief.”
It’s interesting to see two of the biggest names of their respective fields undertaking this venture. The Watch holds the promise of delivering both utility and style. Exciting things can be expected from Hermès craftsmanship as well as the most up to date Apple technology.
The Single Tour with the 38 mm stainless steel case comes in fauve Barenia leather, noir box leather and capucine Swift leather, while the Single Tour with 42 mm stainless steel case comes in fauve Barenia leather and noir box leather. The Double Tour pairs with the 38 mm stainless steel case and is available in fauve Barenia leather and bleu jean, capucine and etain Swift leather.

Across the collection, each stainless steel case features an etching of the Hermès signature and includes a customisable face with three exclusive dial designs inspired by Clipper, Cape Cod and Espace Hermès watches.
