Apple Watch Hermes edition - worth it?

Hey everyone, I seem to have just found out about the Apple Watch Hermes edition. It looks pretty good but is priced nearly 3x a normal Apple Watch.

What're your thoughts on the the Hermes Apple Watch?

Yeah I guess a good choice if you're broke. If you actually have money get something along the lines of a Rolex, AP, Patek, etc.

Vinod Khosla wears Apple Watch apparently, but I agree, the Hermes choice shows broke personality

As a watch connoisseur, absolutely not! If you must have an apple watch just get a basic one which serves the need of having to check your texts/email on your wrist. But if you're looking to drop actual cash on a watch, don't do it on the leather band from Hermes given that's what you'll be paying for. Do it on a real timepiece which'll not go obsolete the next time Apple decides to release a new version of their watch.

Haha this is fair. Long work nights with gaps in between every now and then is your answer. Cheers

I wouldn't go there..looks cocky..If you'd like an apple watch get the regular one (I have a silver metal brace and the regular one for sport)

If you want to spend this kind of money..get a real watch.. ;)

I love Apple Watches because I love being able to see the notifications and that's it. It's such a shame the newer editions don't have traditional leather bands unless you get the Hermes version. While I think the Hermes edition is definitely overpriced, I'd say go for it if you really want it. I might, but I'm not sure yet. 

If I do get one, it would be this combo. Leaning toward the 41mm version. 45 looks too tacky imo
