Hermes watches2Apple and Hermès have come together to create a stylish variation of the world’s most popular smartwatch. The Apple Watch Hermès collection combines the innovation of the Apple Watch, in a sleek, stainless steel finish, with the elegance of Hermès’ finely crafted leather bands.

“Apple and Hermès make very different products, but they reflect the deep appreciation of quality design,” said Jonathan Ive, Apple’s chief design officer. “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.”

The collection is available to buy from early October 2015, with straps in a variety of distinctive styles – including Single Tour, Double Tour and Cuff – for between $1,500 and $2,000.
