Hi everybody I'm planning to buy an hermes kelly watch soon but I don't know which one to choose. I wonder should i get the single strap kelly or double strap? and should i choose stainless steel or gold plated?? and which colour should i choose... i'm interested in getting the orange (as this is hermes main colour) or black colour. and by the way will gold plated turn rusty??? sorry to ask so much, help needed. thanks :sweatdrop:

I'm probably not going to be much help really as I have an older 925 silver Kelly watch. I think strapwise it is up to you really as to personal preference and of course I can't advise re the finish, but I would just like to say that I love this watch.

I'm afraid I wouldn't know as I'm in the UK and I imagine it would depend upon the tax situation and the exchange rates at the time of purchase. In my case, we do not get any "duty free" rates at airports unless we are travelling long haul outside the EU and as Sterling is rather volatile at the moment, it's difficult to say exchange rate wise too - I did warn you I would not be much help :rolleyes:

I have the kelly watch in gold - no worries about it getting rusty :smile: Also, the straps are interchangeable with these watches, so it really does not matter if you get a single or double strap. You can always buy additional straps at a later time :heart: Best of luck to you!

It is cheaper to go to any AD, you can ask for discount there. Not the boutique.

hongkong is cheapest out of the three countries mentioned.

depends on if you what color watches you have already. If you don't have a gold color watch already, then get it in gold. I personally think the kelly watch looks fantastic in both stainless steel and gold. But if you are set on getting it with an orange strap, then I would suggest gold. Gold with orange is so chic!

I have the double tour band and the watch in palladium. The band is rouge H (with Pall) and the face of the watch is also rouge H. I like the idea of wearing the double bracelet. Two for one!
