You don’t have to visit select Apple Stores to get your wrists on Hermès’ special Apple Watch bands anymore.

After debuting this Fall as limited edition pieces only available at Hermès’ and Apple retail stores, the stylish leather straps can now be purchased via the online Apple Store by any unhip nerd with a credit card.

Pricing on the Hermès bands starts at $1,100 for the Single Tour leather band in the 38mm size, with options going all the way up to $1,500 for the Double Tour and giant leather cuff options depending on the color and finish.

The Hermès bands were reportedly in the works before Apple Watch even debuted publicly, and were ‘inspired by equestrian fittings.’ Despite boasting lots of calfskin leather, all three styles of bands still allow the heart rate sensor to stay in contact with the wrist.

Each band comes in a unique Hermès box that includes a stainless steel Apple Watch case plus a Hermès clock face to match the look. The bands can be bought at both the online Apple Store, as well as Hermès online.
