Monday Apple Rumors: Apple Watch Lugs Available for Third-Party Bands

The new Hermes Watch was originally announced at Apple’s fall event September 9. The Single Tour, The Double Tour, and Cuff buckle designs start between $1,100 and $1,500.


The retail chain Target will begin selling the recently introduced Apple Watch at stores and online in the next few weeks.

Apple has also provided band manufacturers with Assembly guidelines that adhere to step by step instructions. It was learned that Apple Watch 38mm model and Apple Watch 42mm are likely the selected models that will be publicly sold. The lugs can be deployed by third-party Apple Watch band makers to create the accessory for the smartwatch. All of the smartwatches included in the Apple Watch Hermes Collection have special new clock faces designed by the luxury brand, as well as their logo stapled on the back.

The Double Tour strap is extra long so that it can wrap twice around your wrist, which serves both as added reinforcement as well as a stylish leather bracelet. The Pentalobe screwdriver 1.1 is also sold separately for $12.65, which is required in the assembly process.

The new watches are available at Apple and Hermes stores in fashion centers like Berlin, Paris, and Zurich.

Just in time for the holiday season, Target will soon start stocking the Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch is further expected to expand its availability in the future, but for now Target seems to be its next stop.


The stainless steel lugs are compliant with the Apple Watch Edition, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch versions. Groundbreaking functionality. Apple Watch Hermès is the culmination of a partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision and mutual regard.
