The Apple Watch Hermès will sell like hell. I predict the Apple Watch Hermès will be the most sought after Christmas Gift 2015. Have a look and then tell me what you think …
Just to make it clear: I am still not looking at the Apple Watch or the Apple Watch Hermès as a watch! For me the Apple Watch remains a consumer electronic item, probably the best smartwatch on the market or simply a Bonsai-iPhone for the wrist. Tonight I am looking at the Apple Watch Hermès as a must-have-fashion-item, an IT-watch and believe me guys this Apple Watch will sell! Hermès is the turbo boost!
Jonathan Ive, Apple’s chief design officer said: “Apple and Hermès make very different products, but they reflect the deep appreciation of quality design. Both companies are motivated by a sincere pursuit of excellence and the desire to create something that is not compromised. Apple Watch Hermès is a true testament to that belief.”
Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Hermès’ executive vice president in charge of artistic direction, said: “At Hermès, we strive to provide our clients with elegant, creative and functional objects for their everyday lives. What more contemporary and relevant expression of this principle could there be than this collaboration with Apple. We are strongly united by the same deeply held ideas and principles. I see it as the establishment of an alliance in excellence; like horse and carriage, a perfect team.”
