A few months after launching the Apple Watch, Ma started selling an exclusive watch option in partnership with the French brand Herms. Shortly thereafter, in April 2016, they were adding new bracelet colors to the catalog and starting to sell only the bracelets separately.
to imagine that this partnership with Herms would, at some point, be expanded to other brands after all, Apple itself has already released the creation of bracelets for your watch to any company that is interested.
Well now, before the WWDC that could have launches and announcements related to Apple Watch, appeared on the brand's website Coach images and pages dedicated to selling smartwatch bracelets.
What better way to complement your Apple Watch than with this luxury bracelet crafted in our leather glovetanned genuno? With ugly hand finishing, heat-creased edges and better grip for stress points for durability, the design accentuated with a charming, polished, beautiful and small hangtag of metal.
THE 9to5Mac managed to talk to a representative of the brand who confirmed everything: the new bracelets will start to be sold on June 6 (at least in the USA) and will cost US $ 150. Apparently there will be some models and different colors the sizes, however, were not informed.
I do not doubt that this partnership and others will be highlighted at WWDC in order to promote this “new” possibility of creating bracelets for the watch.

And, as predicted, the bracelets of Coach are already available for sale in the brand's online and physical stores, as noted by Haute criture. There are three models, all female, in two sizes (38 and 42mm) and varying between US $ 125 and US $ 150.
As the parts have limited stock, sales are limited to 3 of the same model and 10 items in total, per customer. Apparently Coach's work, unlike Herms, did not get much help from Apple, the brand is producing and selling the bracelets independently.
