Apple and Hermès will finally make the products of their partnership for the Apple Watch — known as the Apple Watch Hermès collection — available to purchase online soon … very soon.
Since its release a month after it was unveiled at the iPhone 6s event in September, the Apple Watch Hermès collection has been available to purchase only at select Apple stores, Hermès shops and boutique retailers in North America (Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Toronto), Europe (Berlin, Geneva, London, Milan, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Zurich), and Asia Pacific (Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Osaka, Seoul, Singapore, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo).
But as reported by Fashionista, the collection will be offered for purchase online starting this Friday, Jan. 22.
As touted by the Cupertino-based tech giant and the Paris-based luxury brand, each timepiece in the collection comes with a stainless case with “leather straps handmade by Hermès artisans in France and an Hermès watch face reinterpreted by Apple designers in California.”
In total, the collection offers 10 different style and size combinations across three band types: Single Tour, Double Tour, and Cuff.
Starting at $1,100, the Single Tour is available in Fauve and Noir for the 38mm and 42mm cases, and in Capucine for the 38mm case.
The Double Tour, which costs $1,250, is available in Fauve, Etain, Capucine, and Bleu Jean for the 38mm case.
Finally, there’s the Cuff, which is priced at $1,500 and is available in Fauve for the 42mm case.
Probably then, when it’s just a few clicks away rather than requiring a visit to a participating store, it will attract more users in spite of its relative priciness.
