J.J. Abrams is the latest high-profile celeb to be seen in public sporting the Apple Watch. The famous film director was seen wearing the Apple wearable during today’s Force Awakens panel at this week’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California.
From the images above and below, it appears that the Star Wars Episoe VII director is wearing the stainless steel Apple Watch with a blue band, possibly the Leather Loop or Modern Buckle. Given Apple has shown willingness to customize Apple Watches for influential celebs, it’s also possible that Apple has created a custom navy blue Sport Band for Abrams.
Abrams’ Apple Watch sighting follows a number of others, namely Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Drake — all of whom were sporting Apple’s luxury Edition model. Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld was also photographed wearing the Edition with a custom yellow gold Link Bracelet.
As we near the Apple Watch’s launch, we’re likely to see more sightings of the device on famous wrists as Apple aims to introduce the product to the public via these influencers. The general public will begin receiving their Watches on April 24th with later pre-orders being shipped out throughout May and into June.
