India to get Apple Watch within weeks

The Apple Watch will be launched in India on November 6, a spokeswoman has confirmed.

The watch page on Apple's India site had earlier been updated with an easily-missed "Available 6/11," indicating the watch had a Indian launch date.

The global roll-out of Apple Watches been slow-paced, heightening anticipation for the wearables. Six months after its global launch, India is part of Apple's tenth wave of releases. The previous launch was in Chile, Philippines and South Africa on October 23.

The Apple Watch produced in collaboration with luxury brand Hermès, featuring "leather straps handmade by Hermès artisans in France and an Hermès watch face reinterpreted by Apple designers" will apparently be available in India, as it features on the Apple webpage that advertises the launch.
