Apple and Hermès today introduced Apple Watch Hermès, a new collection of Apple Watch in stainless steel with finely crafted leather bands in distinctive styles from Hermès, including the Single Tour, Double Tour and Cuff. The collaboration merges Apple’s unparalleled product innovation with the heritage, iconography and craftsmanship of Hermès, creating a unique expression of Apple Watch.

“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.”

“At Hermès, we strive to provide our clients with elegant, creative and functional objects for their everyday lives,” said Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Hermès’ executive vice president in charge of artistic direction. “What more contemporary and relevant expression of this principle could there be than this collaboration with Apple. We are strongly united by the same deeply held ideas and principles. I see it as the establishment of an alliance in excellence; like horse and carriage, a perfect team.”

Apple wasted too much time for Apple Watch in the event by explaining those expensive wearables instead they have a session for Mac

1. Apple put ton of focus in their Mac months ago. 2. Apple watch needed a chance since the 2nd version is coming, give it a break. 3. What time did Apple waste. Do you not know how many events happen every year?

I know 2 events for customers every year Apple conducting. Apple watch OS 2 already explained greatly in the last event except that medical app demo which is really excited one but upcoming OSX is what all the most OSX users dreamed about The DirectX rivalry Metal which enables Mac to the extreme utilisation of GPU and CPU. This is gonna be the biggest jump in creative, gaming and productivity. So every Mac users greatly waiting for. Everyone will see and understand if those smaller watch updates posted in their website

Ok so it's justifiable to pay $550.00 for a bend? You're the one who is idiot! It cost them less then $5.00 to make it. Best of luck with that
