I ain’t saying he’s a gold-digger, but Kanye already has an Apple Watch Edition

Given his unabashed love for “Jony Ives” (sic) and his status as the “next Steve Jobs,” it was only ever going to be a limited amount of time before Kanye West got his hands on a gold Apple Watch.

What may be slightly more of a surprise is that he didn’t just get the regular 18-karat Apple Watch Edition Apple has handed out to seemingly every celebrity who knocks on its doors, but rather the all-gold custom band unavailable to customers, which only Beyonce and Karl Lagerfeld have been spotted wearing so far.

West was spotted last week wearing the Watch at a Louis Vuitton cruise show in Palm Springs, and has also worn it for both an appearance at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a performance during the Cavaliers vs. Bulls game four of the NBA Playoffs.


Perhaps Tim Cook swapped it for a bit of advice on how to run Apple
