Karl Lagerfeld Apple Watch Edition

If Apple Watch Edition is out of your league, don’t even start to think about how you could get your hands on this one, because you can’t! This Apple Watch Edition with gold Link bracelet was custom-made for fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Shared on Instagram by his assistant Sébastien Jondeau, this version goes far beyond anything we had seen so far on celebrities ranging from Pharrell to Katy Perry, who’ve been sporting the “stock” Apple Watch Edition models.

So why does Karl Lagerfeld get a special treatment? Lagerfeld is a highly regarded and influential man in the world of fashion, and having his implicit endorsement is a big win for Apple who’s been positioning the watch more as a fashion accessory than a tech gadget.

In the end, it’s not hard to imagine that at some point, Apple may commercialize similar version of the Link bracelet. If anything, it’s even surprising they aren’t any made available yet with Apple Watch Edition.

    What in the world is that ugly thing over his hand?

    • Hippo

      Rich People

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Those are gloves, part of his style.

    • Martynet

      That’s the gloves he wears all the time…

      • Fanboy 

        I guess if you’re rich it’s okay to wear fish nets over your hands…

      • Guest

        Better than Tim Cook wearing fish net stockings.

    Ok? So….

      So its a one off iWatch, did you know there was one before? Do you care – probably not but its still apple related and you still read the article.

    I’m still surprised that the most expensive Apple watch edition can be bought with the cheapest strap that you get with the apple watch sport. Who at Apple thought that would work? I mean who would buy a watch that costs so much and choose the option of a cheap rubber like strap?

      The band has gold in it

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        Thats not gold, just brass plated steel.

      • Rowan09

        It says gold on the Apple website.

        Why are we looking at a screen shot of your AT&T app?..

        Look at you, Mr. Financially Responsible! Your phone bill is up to date! Yaaayyyy!!

      • Jailbrkr21

        I was making the point that its a cheap rubber like band. that little bit of gold has nothing to do with my point.

        Well, I now know your account number.
        At least you didn’t accidently upload a picture of your drivers license like someone else accidently did once.

    • JonD

      Not saying I disagree with the sentiment, but it’s not unheard of for a luxury gold watch to come sporting a rubber strap: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore models frequently come with them, and those run well above 17k…

    • Martynet

      for workout it’s better to have a plastic band

      • Jailbrkr21

        for workout its also better to NOT use a watch worth $$$$$ or £12000 in my case.

      • Stemro

        I always go running with my “luxury” watch

    • Eikast

      You make a good point. They should have made the gold link band for everyone (assuming that they got the $$$$).

  • Blip dude

    More like the watch I don’t want nor need. Seriously, the Sport looks better compared to this.

  • Shingo

    next one with diamond

  • Digitalfeind

    Useless article.

  • Andres

    Apple should make more expensive bands for the Edition, spending 17k on a watch and only getting a gold buckle on the strap isn’t enough. If people have the money they’ll buy it. Maybe like a special order program

  • Eli Montoya

    That glove. It’s Something Mr. Grey would make his submissives wear.

  • Alberto Espinal

    Someone posted this on another website but of course photoshop

    • Jonathan

      Yeah no kidding. I could have made that in 30 seconds. xD

      • Alberto Espinal

        Damn Jonathan I was waiting for you to do it, LOL!

      • Jonathan

        ..but it’s already been done?

  • SoylentGreen

    It’s not rich ppl, rich ppl are using it as an indicator of character, Lagerfeld is a SCREAMING “Chase me, Chase me character, and has prediliction for humiliation,
    Now it’s just easier to tell.
    Tis a nurture not nature, thing.

  • InfinitePlusOne

    Which was is his hand?

  • iPhoneWINS

    this guy is probably also one of Tims close personal “friends”

  • 919263

    The Apple watch You “DONT NEED AT ALL”….actually you dont need any of them…

    • smtp25

      Do you ever need a watch at all? Then you could infact need an iwatch

  • Jake1047s

    What is the point of this post?

  • The name of this product confuses the hell out of me. Like, how is the name constructed?

    Is it a version of the Apple Watch named Edition, is it the Apple Watch Edition of the Apple Watch?
