The initial Apple view unveiling focused on a product partnership with Hermès, who will create a range of designer bands and view faces that will be available for the Apple view this coming October. The partnership with Hermès will see consumers able to purchase a spectacular range of premium leather straps that ought to perfectly compliment the expensive look and feel of the Apple Watch, complete with Hermès-designed view faces, which ought to expand on that premium feel.
The pricing model for the Hermès lineup is as follows:
Apple view Hermès starts at $1,100 (US) for the 38 mm stainless steel case with the single Tour, $1,150 (US) for the 42 mm stainless steel case with the single Tour, $1,250 (US) for the 38 mm stainless steel case with the double trip and $1,500 (US) for the 42 mm stainless steel case with the Cuff.

Apple also announced the existence of two new Apple view finishes for the sport range. new Gold and rose Gold coverings will be provided to consumers at the same price point of the current Apple view sport range.
