Strike up the band: happy birthday to the Apple watch from Hermès

A year ago Apple launched its watch, a smartwatch that became even smarter in October with the launch of a luxury option – a tailored watch and strap combo from French luxury brand Hermès.

Now Apple and Hermès are introducing bold new colours to the Apple Watch Hermès collection, and for the first time the entire collection of bands will be available to purchase separately.

The three styles introduced in Spring 2015 – Single Tour, Double Tour and Cuff – will continue, while the complete case and band will be offered in Fauve Barenia only.
