i havent bought an hermes band since last year...i have not liked their latest offerings :(
You think bicolor will make a return or did they exhaust all the colors?

I gotta admit I was expecting a new scarf design. As nice as this full rainbow release was, as an eperon/tatouage/della cavalleria owner, I am starving for a new patterned band.

A fun article about the Hermes display at Apple Park in Cupertino.

Is that owl made of Hermes leather? If so, it’s got to cost like $100k!

Lol for sure looks like a bunch of leftover raspberry modern buckle leather if you ask me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Sadly my sense is those gold buckle bands didn’t sell well.

SS > SBSS > Titanium > Hermès
I keep upgrading and I finally pulled the trigger on a Hermès. Very happy with this purchase.

Went simple and classy with a Fauve Barenia Single Tour. Love it because orange is my favorite color haha!



Love your shots. I’ve been contorting my wrists and holding my Max at very precarious angles to get the hero shot angle meself, so I apppreciate the artistry. Etain is *such* a good idea for fauve.

Thanks atthousandoutfits! Been doing professional photography for over 10 years. Photography is all about lighting and angles. That’s it.

Yep that watch face color looks fabulous. Now the hunt for more Hermès bands haha!

I’m dying to get my hands on the improved telephoto sensor on the 12. Once I got serious about my band shots and the appealing “flattened” look of the 2x, I refuse to use the wide angle lens even though pixels come out better...

It’s crazy how much better the camera is on the 11 Pro Max compared to the XS Max. I look forward to getting a 12 Pro Max around the holidays.

Ordered the Hermès 44mm Noir Swift Leather Single Tour Deployment Buckle. I was going to return the watch and reorder the Hermes watch again with the Deployment buckle but didn't want to lay the wait game. I may part with the Noir Swift Leather Single Tour that cam with my on eBay if I find I am not using it’ll, down the road.
I’m Thrilled Ill have the Deployment buckle, I realized my OCD and the fact that it may creased the leather would annoyed me, Ill have it on Tuesday quick and fast turnaround.

Good call! The deployant clasp is fantastic, and that band really dresses up the SS Hermes.

Edit: the SS Hermes? Sounds like a naval vessel. I gotta remember to work on my phrasing.

I've been on the fence on getting an Hermes watch, mostly given the premium on the watch itself as I upgrade ~every other year. I am fine with the value of the band. Been trying to decide if I go for it or not this year...

I want the deployment band, but what I don't understand is why I can buy a deployment band right now as a separate from Apple, but I can't buy a deployment band with a watch, I would have to get a single tour watch and then get the deployment band.

You can. It goes in and out of stock every day. Keep checking

seems like you can at least configure it in the apple watch studio... says unavailable though. i wonder if that's a permanent state?

Yeah, it been that way since launch. Which is why I decided to go that route myself.

can anyone confirm that there's actually a genuine hermes ebene single tour (not deployment) with space black hardware and contrast stitching? there's a few listed on eBay (a bit $$$) and it seems that if it exists, and is genuine, it brings to three the number of 44mm single tour bands that hermes has done with black hardware?

ebay:

before i realized that someone had already done it, better, (the bandbreite reference), i made this little chart with what i believe are all the 44mm single tour bands hermes has released. bandbreite doesn't list the black hardware option for the ebene, nor do they list an ebene without the deployment buckle. here's my ghetto chart!

appleHermes44mmSingle.JPG


bandbreite also references an orange attelage. can't find any reference to that anywhere else.

Great chart! Would make a nice poster.

Someone else can correct me if I’m wrong as I never considered the SBSS S5 or S6 but I never remember any other SBSS band other than Nior with black hardware.

There are a lot of modded or counterfeit Hermes made bands out there.

And as far as I’m aware, there is no orange attelage either.

Bandbreite did admit their database may not be 100% perfect and they have a section for users to submit feedback. If something seems fishy with their data, I would listen to your gut.

...

Thanks! I’m pretty sure the noir rallye with black hardware is legit. but I can’t find official reference to any but those two.

i would have loved this print one in single tour!!

Hi all! I am looking to buy a Hermes series 6 for myself but unsure whether to get the 40 or 44mm. I have a very small wrist of about 6 inch. I currently have a 44mm nike series 5 but using the S/M band. Does anyone know whether the 44mm Hermes band will fit me or should I go for the 40mm instead?

What hole are you using on s/m? I use the third from the end of the tongue on 44mm (loop size 7) and straddle both case sizes nicely and wear Hermes bands of both flavors. Sounds like your wrist is much smaller than mine and you should go 40mm. It will block you from the more subdued seasonal color options they only make in 44mm.

I wear my s/m band on the 4th hole from the dead end of the strap (not towards the watch face). I am also thinking about going with the 40mm, but kind of used to the 44mm face and not sure whether it will be a wise decision to get a smaller face now..

Forgot to say that its quite a loose fit at the 4th hole. I prefer my watches to be loose rather than a tight fit

I do have a very small wrist too. Be aware, that Hermès only adds the M/L Sports band, unlike Apple, there are NOT both lengths in the box. It is 40mm S/M - 44mm M/L. I had to drill a supplementary hole in the orange Hermès band. It overlaps a bit under the watch, but works fine. Try a M/L band in an Apple shop first.
...drilling the hole is not really a problem with a slow turning drill though.
But as you are used to the 44mm, I would stick to that size.
