The online Apple Store will offer the Hermes Apple Watch edition starting Friday
For those fashionistas who are looking to pick up the Hermes version of the Apple Watch, but don't feel like traveling to a upscale boutique store, this Friday the watch will become available from the online Apple Store. That is according to a report printed today (coincidentally) on Fashionista.com. The Hermes version of Apple's intelligent timepiece actually includes three different leather bands.

For $1100, there is the "Single Tour". The "Double Tour" is priced at $1250, and the top of the line is the "Cuff." The latter is priced at $1500 and is only available in the larger 42mm size. The Hermes version of the Apple Watch launched last October and could only be found in boutiques located in U.S. cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles or Miami. 

The exclusive watch face that the device comes with has the Hermes brand on it, which is real estate that Apple doesn't give away lightly. Apple design czar Jony Ive had admitted in an interview last year that Apple's partnership with the high-fashion company pre-dated the unveiling of the Apple Watch.

The Hermes Apple Watch might sound expensive, but the most expensive Apple Watch units listed online are more than ten times the cost of the "Cuff." The 38mm 18-Karat Yellow Gold Case with Bright Red Modern Buckle is priced at $17,000, as is the 38mm 18-Karat Rose Gold Case with Rose Gray Modern Buckle.
