Tom Ford unveiled his Spring 2016 collection this week in London, and while the fashion designer’s newest fanciful dinner jackets drew in a flock of celebrity, the Apple Watch made a surprise appearance in the ready-to-wear collection.
Rather than designing a fashionable Apple Watch band, the forward-thinking designer bridged Apple’s timekeeping accessory to the past by turning it into a pocket watch attached to a chain.
Here’s another look at it:

Ford created a special hook that slides into the the top watch band slot. It looks like there’s also a metal piece to fill in the bottom opening as well. It’s not entirely practical seems how the Apple Watch will be completely unable to measure your heart rate, and you’ll need to type in your PIN every time you want to check notifications. But no one said looking fashionable was easy.
