Are there any vendors that sell the Hermes straps without the watch? Most of the ones I see on eBay are watch included...

I doubt it, at least through authorized dealers—Apple and Hermès certainly don’t. The Hermès branded watch has a Hermès branded dial. While Hermès can’t make users use their dial, they probably would rather you do.

was hoping maybe someone who purchased or received the Hermes watch as a gift maybe would sell them. Or perhaps some vendor would be able to source them separately from Hermes....

You don't want one of the imitation straps? I know there's someone making one like the Double Tour, and there are other cuff straps, too.

Half the appeal — or more than half, IMO — of the Hermes watch is the strap itself. If I were to drop the cash for the package, there's no way I would sell off the strap.

I've seen quite a few chinese versions of this double tour strap. Check Alibaba, you might be able to request a sample from a supplier and pay tops 40-50USD for one. Can't guarantee if the quality will be top notch, but you'll definitely have the look going on.

Most of the double-wrap straps I’ve seen have been thin—thin in width, thin in thickness. Overall, it’s very underwhelming with a single-wrap look and downright disappointing with a double-wrap look. But kudos to anyone who can find a quality double-wrap strap.

I have seen Hermes straps at Marios in Portland Oregon. They were willing to sell them separately. These were normal type straps for fitting with spring bars. I have no idea if they can get Apple Watch straps though. Worth an email.

Selling the bands separately makes the most sense for Hermes Watch owners, especially the new colors and textures. I felt a little weird about the Hermes deal as it was, but I wasn't aware of why -- selling only complete watches made people commit to a particular combo.

Bet they sell more of these bands than the watches.

Oh yeah -- just in time for Mother's Day, too.
