If you have an Apple Watch on your wrist and an old Mac in your heart, the design company elago has a stand that will take you back in time.

The Apple Watch rests on the W3 stand behind a silicon housing that is a cute scale model of a 1984 Macintosh computer monitor, incorporating the watch face so it appears you have a little working Mac.

The stand is faithful to every angle and cut and includes a floppy disk drive for an authentic look.

elago makes a number of accessories for Apple devices, including cases for iPhones, iPads and MacBooks. The designs are normally clean and modern, so the W3 stand is a nice nod to the past.

The silicone material won’t scratch the watch, works with all Apple Watch models and is Nightstand Mode compatible. The design also secures the charging cable (not included) to prevent damage and disconnect.

The W3 comes in white and black and at $13.49, more affordable than when the original Mac first came out.
