The ludicrously-priced Apple Watch Hermès Collection lands online

If the Apple Watch just isn’t debonair enough for your high fashion sensibilities, you can now drop more twice the normal asking price for an Hermès version.

Yes, the Hermes Collection with the custom digital watch face and a snake-like wraparound strap can now be purchased from the Apple Store.

The collection from the French fashion house starts at £1,000 and can be picked up in 10 different versions with various strap colours and styles.

The top of the line model, the “Apple Watch Hermès Cuff, 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Fauve Barenia Leather Strap” comes in at a whopping £1,350.

Effectively you’re just paying hundreds of pounds for the leather strap, because the only other thing you’re getting is an Hermès-branded digital watch face.

You’ll also get a fancier orange box which, which is tied with Apple Watch Hermès Bolduc ribbon, but you won’t look very cool with that tied around your wrist.

The new Hermes collection was announced back in September and had only been available through select Apple Stores and in Hermès boutiques since October.

Of course, with rumours of an Apple Watch 2 arriving within the next couple of months, you should think very carefully about grabbing a first generation watch… especially at this price.
