“Earlier this month, Apple announced that it would make the premium Hermès bands for Apple Watch available as a standalone purchase and today it has done just that,” Chance Miller reports for 9to5Mac. “Now, Apple Watch customers can purchase a Hermès band for their Apple Watch separately via Apple’s online store.”
“Previously, the only way to obtain a Hermès band was to buy it paired with the Apple Watch itself,” Miller reports.
“Now, the Hermès Single Tour band is available for $340 by itself… The Hermès Double Tour band is available solely in the 38mm variety and comes in at $490,” Miller reports. “Rounding out the Hermès Apple Watch band lineup is the Cuff option, which is available only in a 42mm size and in deer brown. The Cuff band will run interested customers $690.”
