Tim Cook has his very own style of Apple Watch that no-one else gets to wear

The CEO’s wristwear isn’t available in the shops.

APPLE CEO TIM Cook wears his Apple Watch everywhere (even in the shower). But if you look closely at photos of his watch,  you can see that it’s a totally unique model that is not available to the public.

Take a look at the photo of Cook above. Notice anything odd about the Apple Watch he’s wearing on his left wrist?

Let’s take a closer look:


Cook wears a stainless steel Apple Watch with a white sport band. That’s not the unusual bit. What’s different about Cook’s watch is the digital crown (the circular button that sticks out). Cook’s crown is capped with a section that’s coloured red.

You can’t buy the stainless steel Apple Watch with the red crown like Cook’s — Apple simply doesn’t sell that type of watch. Instead, only the gold Apple Watch Edition watches come with coloured crowns — and they start at €11,400 ($12,269).

So it looks like Cook is wearing a custom model of Apple Watch with a unique digital crown, possibly an early test model that he has decided to stick with.
