Apple on Thursday quietly launched several new high-end leather Hermès Apple Watch bands. There’s some good news for folks who like Hermès but already owned an Apple Watch: Apple will now sell the bands completely separate from hardware, and it’s introducing a few new colors, too.
Instead of just the standard introductory colors, Apple will now offer “Feu” – an orange-like hue, “Blanc” (white), “Bleu Paon” (turquoise) and “Bleu Saphir” (navy blue). Those options are available for several two different models including the Hermès Double Tour and Single Tour. The 42mm Cuff is still only available in the Fauve hue.
According to A Blog to Watch, the Single Tour bands are priced at $340 while the Double Tour will set you back $490. The Cuff is priced at $690. Yep, they’re expensive, but you’re paying for the Hermès brand.
