In case you haven't been paying attention for the last seven months or so, it's very, very easy to spend a lot of money on an Apple Watch. But if Apple's own lineup of bands and crazy expensive solid-gold cases aren't exactly working with your own personal aesthetic, fear not: today, the newly-announced set of Hermès leather bands are now available in selected Apple Stores and Hermès locations around the world.

As a refresher, Hermès is an iconic Paris-based fashion designer and manufacture that has a particular focus on high-quality leather products. As such, they've created three different leather bands for the Apple Watch: a fairly traditional leather band called the Single Tour, a longer, double-wrapping strap called the Double Tour, and a wider, chunkier band called the Cuff. The Single Tour model starts at $1,110, comes in both 38mm and 42mm sizing options and is available in three different colors (depending on which size you choose). The Double Tour is for the 38mm Watch only and comes in four different colors, while the Cuff is for 42mm Watches only and is available in one single leather finish.

Fortunately, your hard-earned cash doesn't just go towards these fancy new straps -- you'll also get an exclusive Hermes-designed watch face and the Hermès logo engraved on the back of your Watch's body. On the one hand, it's easy to laugh at these prices, but a partnership with an internationally-recognized fashion designer like Hermès could go a long way towards positioning the Apple Watch as the fashionable timepiece the company wants it to be viewed as. And to keep things properly exclusive, the Apple Watch Hermès is only available in retail stores -- no utilitarian online orders will be accepted for this
