When Apple first tapped Hermès to design a band for it's smartwatch, the most notable design element was its enormous price tag. An Apple Watch Hermès starts at $1,100, while an Apple Watch Sport starts at $299.

Beginning April 19th, however, you'll be able to buy Hermès Watch bands a la carte for the first time, essentially allowing you to hack a cheaper Apple Watch Hermès. The 'Single Tour Band' will sell for $340 on its own, the 'Double Tour' for $490, and the cuff style for $690. All told, your Apple Watch Hermès can ring in for as low as $639 ($299 for the Sport + $340 for the 'Single Tour' strap), a whopping 42% less than the $1,100 you need to spend today today get one.

New Hermès Watch strap colors are launching April 19th, too: 'Bleu Paon' (green), 'Bleu Saphir' (navy), Blanc (white), and Hermès' signature orange, 'Feu.' The spring 2016 range, as its being billed, will be available on both and, as well as in select Apple stores, boutiques, and department stores.

We wouldn't be at all surprised to see a few on the Met Gala red carpet in May; Apple is the sole sponsor of this year's tech-themed Costume Institute exhibit.
