Hermes recently announced the production of leather straps for the Apple Watch which was sure to gain traction from the mainstream in fashion. After all, Apple as a technology is not considered a fashion statement so to combine these two brands could be considered the most prestigious example of a smart watch.
In case you might be wondering, Hermes is a high-end luxury product designer in Paris. Although they are best known for creating perfumes and home furnishings, they also strive to produce valuable lifestyle accessories with a strong focus on quality.
However, the cost of Hermes products is quite often out of reach of the common fashion enthusiast and the price of these straps was always going to follow a similar line. With this in mind, we realized that a fashionable Hermes Apple Watch band was a great idea but also that a more affordable option likely to offer more value to the majority of Apple Watch owners.
About olpr. and Hermes Apple Watch Band
We love technology at olpr. and fully embrace modern devices as part of our everyday lives. In this sense, when major companies release revolutionary gadgets, we take note and consistently look to see how we can embrace them further, as part of what we do.
For this reason, we were so excited to see Hermes release a double wrap strap for the Apple Watch but then obviously disappointed in that we cannot afford the somewhat extravagant prices of these luxury goods. Anyway, this was as good a reason as any to get working on our own designs and produce a double wrap strap which was every bit as glamorous as the new famous designers.
That being said, although the double wrap band is increasingly popular, we also set out to create a single band version and other related products which were sure to delight Apple Watch owners looking for a more affordable option for their pride and joy.
Here is a collection of our finest Apple Watch bands which were inspired by recent creations brought to the market by Hermes:
Apple Watch Double Wrap Band – Hermes Replica

As you know, Apple is all about innovation and we wanted to take the Hermes Apple Watch Band to the next level by bringing a sense of uniqueness to our straps. When you feel the smooth finish of a Hermes Apple Watch band you will understand why we created our own version of this unique accessory.
As the name suggests, this band wraps around the wrist twice and features an extra soft and smooth finish to ensure maximum comfort. At the same, the sleek appearance of this Apple Watch double wrap band is the real highlight and you can opt to modify this appearance by altering the color of both the leather and the stitching. The strap is two-sided and made exclusively of Horween Leather. Incredibly soft and supremely attractive, this simplistic watch strap features smooth and elegant finish, this simplistic design is quite similar to the Hermes Apple Watch strap and strikes a wonderful balance between nature and the smart technology of an Apple Watch.
About Single Watch Bands

As already mentioned, there is also a single wrap band which is every bit as impressive as the product above. In every instance, preference will different but overall, the single watch band still offers the same security to an Apple Watch and the same amount of style but in a slightly lesser tone. That is to say, you receive the same product with a single band but just not the same amount of strap, so to speak.
The single watch bands may be more suited to some individuals but regardless, they offer the same experience at a lesser price.
