The Apple Watch Hermès collaboration is here to stay. In fact, the partnership will also extend to include new editions of Apple’s all-new Series 9. It was first unveiled at the Wonderlust Keynote event, together with the #iPhone15 and AirPods Pro 2nd Generation with USB-C charging capabilities.

This year, Hermès introduces stylish new bands in materials such as webbing, knit and rubber. Firstly, the eye-catching Bridon band, the first-ever ‘knitted’ band for the Apple Watch. It boasts a braided design with a woven texture. There’s also the Toile H & Twill Jump crafted in webbing weave for a sporty-cool mix. Then the Kilim waterproof rubber band, which features a chunky motif from Hermès’ jewellery line.
Leather-lovers can also look forward to a classic interoperation in Barénia calfskin. For the Apple Watch Hermès Series 9, the French fashion house introduces a new leather band. The accompanying Clou de Selle hardware adds visual interest, while offering a nod to the brand’s equestrian heritage.
More than just providing new strap options, the new collection also features exclusive details unique to the partnership. These include the Radial watch face that takes inspiration from the Hermès’ Cape Cod, as well as a special engraving on the back. You will have a choice between the 41 MM and 45 MM case in Silver or Space Black stainless steel.
All Apple Watch Hermès Series 9 models come with GPS + Cellular features. Selected models also include the brighter Always On Retina display, plus an efficient S9 SiP watch chip that delivers 18-hour battery life. Prices start from SGD1749, or you can purchase individual bands currently at SGD499 for the 41 MM Single Tour.
Can’t wait? You can now pre-order your desired Apple Watch Hermès timepiece via the Hermès Singapore e-store, and have it delivered to you from 22 September 2023. This will coincide with the global launch, so you can take this time to view every available design before committing to one, or perhaps, two.
