Being pals with Jony Ive definitely has its benefits. Just ask J.J. Abrams, the director of the upcoming Star Wars movie.
At a panel for The Force Awakens during the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, Abrams showed up wearing an Apple Watch. It looks like a stainless steel model with a black Classic Buckle band.
Plenty of celebrities and fashion designers already have the Apple Watch, so it should come as no surprise that Abrams is wearing one. The A-list director is friends with Ive, who gave Abrams some design help on how to make the new lightsabers in Star Wars more “spitty.”
The panel with Abrams is still streaming below, and a new Force Awakens trailer is expected to hit the web today.
