Chinese New Year is just a few weeks away and the Apple Watch is gearing up to celebrate the occasion with two new color options that will add a lot of red (and hopefully some good luck) to your wrist.

The two new Apple Watch Sport models will come in two finishes: yellow gold aluminum with a red strap, and silver aluminum with a red strap. Both models will be available in both 38mm and 42mm sizes, but you’ll only be able to buy them if you live in Asia.

Busting out the red straps for New Year has significant meaning in Chinese culture. Red corresponds with fire and symbolizes good fortune and joy, making it the most popular color around during Chinese New Year and other holidays. If you buy the gold aluminum model you’ll be extra lucky as the color symbolizes wealth and also happiness.

Apple will begin selling the Chinese New Year edition watches starting on January 15th until February 22nd, but only in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia.
