When it comes to watches, Hermès, the vaunted French luxury house known for its exquisitely crafted leather goods and equestrian roots, and Apple – young, techie, Californian, iconoclastically progressive – are fashion’s most unlikely new power couple. Just in time for Apple’s retail debut in the UAE, the brands have joined forces to become one of the year’s most sought-after accessories: the new Apple Watch Hermès. Available in multiple configurations, the watch features a 38 or 42-millimetre stainless steel case, a customisable face (with dials inspired by the Hermès Clipper, Cape Cod and Espace watches), and a sumptuous leather band, which is available in Hermès’ signature Single Tour, Double Tour and Cuff designs and five colours (Noir, Capucine, Bleu Jean, Étain and Fauve) for a seamless merging of high chic and cutting-edge connectivity.

Apple is opening on October 29 at Mall of the Emirates, Dubai, and Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi, with the Hermès collaboration available at select locations internationally.
