    Just decided to pull the trigger on a clown strap and they’re unavailable on the Apple Store app. If you buy the 44mm Apple Watch with that strap, it’s showing a January 30 delivery date. I’m guessing that folks are buying these out as Christmas gifts.

    I bought an aftermarket clown strap, but it’s nowhere near as supple (read: expensive feeling) as my other Hermès straps. It feels like plastic by comparison.

    BTW as I type this, the band selection on Hermes.com is robust. Looks like they have every current band available.

    Oh, it started a long time ago. I ordered the single tour 40mm watch with the Bordeaux/Rose band on 10/27/18. It should be here by Christmas. Still waiting...

    Don't really have a choice unfortunately.
    How many people bought the AppleCare plan since this comes with a standard 2yr warranty?

    2yr warranty but no accidental damage coverage.

    I always do AppleCare on computers (it has served me well on several occasions) but never on Apple Watch.

    You guys see this Hermes-specific game/app called H-Break? I keep an eye on the Hermes AW page and found this...check it out:

    Interesting! Just downloaded it from the App Store haha

    It’s just three mini games you can play on your watch, a slide puzzle, move the watch around so that three balls land on targets and a memory one where you tap four tiles in a specific sequence.

    I am curious as Hermes website usually has Apple watches ready to order, but Apple website some Hermes watches are not slated for delivery until March? Apple needs to produce more of these if they are selling that well on their website. Come on Apple, step it up a little. Talk about big profits if they are selling that well!

    It could be Hermes that's not keeping up and making enough leather straps. Apple's part in making the Hermes AW is to simply to load on the software for the Hermes watch faces.

    That is too bad. You would think they would be able to keep up with demand better. I prefer to buy the Hermes at an Apple store, since it would be easier to return. No Hermes stores by us. If Apple does not get them in until March, then might as well wait until Apple Watch 5 comes out, as that would be a lot of money to pay when a new watch will come out in 5 to 6 months.

    Which Hermès face setup do you think would be the most legible for instantaneous readability?

    Which Hermès face setup do you think looks the best?

    Hermès 44mm Ebene Barenia Deployment Buckle, shipped in original packaging • $350

    These sell for $539, so you’re getting a deal on a strap I probably wore two or three times.

    It looks like Juuk has removed any mention of their metal bands being released for the new 44mm AW. Is there another quality third party metal band manufacturer?

    If you read their blog, they are working on improvements on the metal bands for the 44mm watch. Stay tuned, they are coming!

    I’ll most likely purchase one from Juuk once they’re released, but I’m wondering if there’s another quality manufacturer in the interim?
