Pharrell Williams apple watch

‘The Voice’ coach and all around hit maker Pharrell Williams was spotted tonight on the popular music singing competition sporting what appears to be a stainless steel Apple Watch with white fluoroelastomer sport band.

Apple Watch has made the cover of several magazines internationally, usually worn by models, but it is the first time it makes a TV appearance with a celebrity. Pharrell Williams probably isn’t the only celebrity to have been given a sample unit, and it is likely that we’ll see the watch pop up more and more on the wrist of personalities before the official launch later this month.

Many Apple employees have also been spotted in the wild field testing the device, and of course Tim Cook and other Apple execs have been showing it off on many occasions.

Apple Watch will be available for pre-order on at 12.01 am PT on Friday, April 10. It will start delivering by and be available in stores on April 24.

Update: Pharrell also showed off his Apple Watch in this short video posted on Instagram

Thanks Jon and Armando!

    does that mean i must have it?

    this culture can be so goofy

    • iBanks

      Lol. But yet was this same comment made when the chic from Sports Illustrated made the cover with her watch? Or yet the lady on stage at the second watch event with her oh so mighty résumé? I bet not. It’s funny how people like to take things out of context and make it a “cultural” thing when that’s not even the case.

      • mrgerbik

        What are you babbiling on about?
        I havent seen or heard anything about a ‘chic’ wearing an apple watch, nor do i care

        You missed the point and then you try using some strawman argument that my comment is out of context??

        Makes no sense

    • Rowan09

      Which culture exactly?

  • Chindavon

    Would you look at that. Looks like there is a market for a 10k Watch. Who’d a thought.

      “what appears to be a stainless steel Apple Watch with white fluoroelastomer sport band”

      • Chindavon

        In the Instagram video, he’s wearing the Gold Edition.

  • Dmitry Nechvolod

    Pharrell will wear his Rolex anyway. He just got this present from Apple in order to promote it so people will buy it (and he probably is getting some money for wearing it)

    • You’ve just been promoted to Captain
      Obvious! Congrats!!

    • iBanks

      Given to him? I doubt it.

      • John

        Yes given to him. You think apple would charge him. No way. I worked security at the baftas once and apple was giving away iphone 5s in goody bags for every single celeb. They got 2 each. Its all about promoting

      • iBanks

        Again, I highly doubt they “gave” him a $10,000+ watch. May have discounted it. 5s devices doesn’t compare.

      • John

        10k to have a polpular celeb with hundreds of thousands of fans advertising your product is nothing. They may have even paid him 100,000k on top of that to wear it as much as he can on tv. You have no idea about advertising and promoting. Ive been on sound stages where they film adverts for brand new cars. One was for a £84,000 mercedez benz. They had 4 cars the exact same spec and model and after filming they crushed all 4. They didnt even use 1 of them. Money is no object to these companys when adverting their product to the rewards it brings.

      • Dmitry Nechvolod

        Why Pharrell needs this toy when he can buy real hand made watch? Obviously the watch is given to him. How can you explain that he has them now before pre order starts?It is all about advertising

      • Rowan09

        Why exactly is this is toy and a watch that only tells time jewelry?

  • George

    Lol

  • Xristina Spiropoulos

    The more I see the watch, the less I want it :/

    • john myth

      Correction: the more you see your bank account the less you “want” the watch.

      • Alberto Espinal

        Lol

  • I dislike when celebs are ‘forced’ to promote new tech .. but this doesn’t seem forced and he seems quite casual with it .. if it is a marketing tactic then it’s done well, compared to other celebrity tech endorsement in the past by various other tech companies

    • Chang in Charge

      Come on, Pharrell looking at his watch and going “Woah” that doesn’t seem forced?

      • I should’ve highlighted that I was referring to the TV show clip.

        The Instagram post: pure personality

      • iBanks

        His “woah” seems more in the context of I got mine and you don’t type deal to me. Not the fact of him being forced to promote it. And I know some will come back with the lousy remark that “it’s suppose to be that way” but I don’t see that being the case. It’s sad how people always assume the conclusion on celebs being paid or forced to do such things when they genuinely may have purchased the product because of their liking.

      • Rowan09

        I agree. Lebron, and the NBA are sponsored by Samsung and usually when someone is being paid by a company you’ll find it online. Maybe Pharell is just saying I got it and it’s not even out yet and it’s the gold model.

      • Alberto Espinal

        Haters gonna hate iBanks, just let them talk trash while we enjoy our tech!

      • I guess he thinks they aren’t allowed to check the time for some reason? Suppose it was Pharrell that actually went to Apple to get it early..

  • iBanks

    Looks Gold to me.

  • El Matador

    You’re welcome Sèbastien – Armando

  • B.A.M.F.

    he is wearing a pink band……………..?

    looks like a girls watch to me….

    • Elias

      It’s white and aren’t men allowed to wear pink if that would be the case?

      • coLin

        not really

      • Elias

        Well that’s sexist… Also he’s wearing pink bracelets so I guess he doesn’t care about your opinion either.

  • I bet Apple only made made 100 or so Apple Watch $10k models.

    • Chindavon

      Because their’s only 100 or so celebrities world wide right? Not to mention your typical rich tycoon or successful businessmen/women.

  • makubot

    I really didn’t like the watch when it was first announced and now the more I see it…in magainzes and on people’s wrists, I more I hate it. In my opinion, it looks awful.

  • Jon20

    Your welcome. Glad I could help Sébastien.

  • IRA

    never knew this guy was gypsy… irrelevant comment anyway…

  • NP92

    Stop bitchin, Like it? Buy it? Life is too short :))
