For some of us, the $10,000+ Apple Watch Edition is a bit on the pricey side. For others, it’s not quite valuable enough. Beyonce posted a photo on her website of hersporting an Apple Watch Edition with a gold band. This is something that’s not available through Apple’s standard retail channels.
It’s likely that she is one of the elite few that received an early or customised variant of the Watch from Apple. She joins an exclusive list that includes Drake, Pharrell and Katy Perry, among others. Beyonce’s Apple Watch looks remarkably similar to the one that designer Karl Lagerfeld was seen wearing recently.
The Apple Watch Edition is available with a fluoroelastomer sport band, or a variety of leather bands through the online store. These do come with a gold pin or buckle, but that’s not quite the same as this band that’s entirely made of gold.
This Apple Watch Edition probably goes for even more than the most expensive Watch, which costs around $17,000. But there are some people with even more exquisite taste. There is a custom made, diamond-studded Apple Watch Edition, which costs $114,995. Perhaps Beyonce was being modest after all.
