You can. But I’d tell you in advance - even when the band was on sale on their website - the image you’re trying to reproduce was not there. There was a regular single tour image instead. No ideas - why. Seems like these bands were cancelled, and a small amount of pre-produced ones were very silently sold on US website...

I see. I heard something about a Special Edition made for the opening of the store in San Francisco, on the other hand, I know that Rene Ritchie bought his Single Tour at APVC. Confusing.

Thank you! That's one image more than I had before.
I was trying to do some Photoshop-Magic, but it's not 100% there yet. But I like the little icon for self-made photos.
Maybe I should just write Hermès an eMail?

I photoshopped this for the v1 of the chart... maybe it helps:

Where? What is APVC, pardon?
And what did you hear about the San Francisco store opening? I didn’t hear even rumours

Photoshop class with emiaj?

Really awesome job!

Hahaha I basically just combined the black double tour médor with the deep blue single tour médor... the color tweak was the tricky part.

That looks AMAZING! I am thrilled with your Photoshop skills! 😱

Thanks! Haha

That's gorgeous! Thank you.

I'm really glad that it helps! Let me know if I can help you with any other bands that don't have high quality official images.

I’d like to see a section on the chart with “unreleased” colors if you can, starting with a phototshop of the Chinese New Year!

Here's the download link for the updated chart for summer 2020:

It's weird that they didn't remove anything from the website this time, although a lot of bands seems to be sold out online. Maybe they are still widely available in the stores, since most stores were closed for the past few months...?

I'll photoshop an image for the Chinese new year nylon band when I receive mine! haha...

The deep blue médor bands were actually on sale on the website of Hermès briefly... I really thought they'd release them on Apple's website this season. Too bad that it's gone and I missed out on the médor bands again. (Have been looking for one when they got launched the first time in black...)

That seems like a plausible explanation. Seafoam, Linen Blue, and Vitamin C are so close to Beryl, Alaskan Blue, and Clementine that there seems to be little reason to keep both sets for sale at the same time. I bet stock of the Fall bands will go quickly once stores reopen though.

Awesome. Did these come out this morning? Must’ve missed them.

Vitamin C and Seafoam are instant favorites. I’m meh on the other two.
I’m the opposite. Well, meh on all of them, but less so on Coastal and Linen
I started taking a handful of orders for the wall mounts. If these come out clean enough maybe I’ll do that. I’ll post some pics this week.
I didn’t like to ask, but...

So, I use dark mode on my devices (not the Mac for work though). I hate the dark mode Apple Store app though. The bands all look terrible against the black background.

Is it normal for Apple to release such a limited number of bands? No new loops or leathers. Hopefully I’m being paranoid but now I’m wondering whether they are phasing out this band system. Someone say it ain’t so!

I just visited my local store right before they closed, and they were out of all but Beryl. Not sure why they still appear on the website, maybe Apple forgot with everything going on? They sold out and technically got discontinued back in spring...

It's the Apple Park Visitor Center. I didn't saved the tweet, but I might find it somehow somewhere. Yeah, Instagram.

I read about the Deep Blue Médor the following sentence. And no, I will never leave this forum, was just looking for photos.

Seems like this one was even more limited than Olympic Bands in Rio in 2016... there they had at least 200 pieces of each type, here - seems like the number was way smaller...

Anyone here have any experience dealing with microcenter.com? I just cannot seem to find a 44mm Alaskan Blue sport band. Their site just popped up with a match for it. Says in-store pickup only (and of course, no stores in Florida), though their FAQ says I can call customer service to have my order shipped. I checked them out and must say most reviews have not been positive on them. Thanks in advance for any info anyone can provide to me.

Woah, micro center has Apple Watch bands?

Ive Ben there a few times, always In store, but I think my brother had something shipped and it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. I’d trust them.

No personal experience with them but they have a good rep. I know of them because they carry Raspberry Pi stuff. Unfortunately the interesting bits are “in-store only”, and the nearest store is 80 miles away, so I’ve never gone.

They have a store pretty much right where I used to live in Houston. They sell all kinds of tech, iPads, computer parts, cases, laptops, monitors, that sort of stuff. Never realized they had bands though!
