Is This the Holy Grail of Apple Watch Bands? – Gear Patrol

Earlier this week, an X user named Stella – Fudge (@StellaFudge) shared images of what could very well be the holy grail of Apple Watch bands. The special edition “Cloud Sport Band” was supposedly designed to celebrate Jony Ive’s 50th birthday. According to Fudge, only 10 prototypes were ever made — none were released.

If the story is true, the special edition band was created in 2017 and meant to be paired with a ceramic model of the Apple Watch Series 2 (size: 42mm). There’s a “J50” — or “I50” — engraved on the pin to signify the legendary former chief design officer’s 50th birthday.

Stella Fudge shared a total of four images on X of the special edition watch band…

Ive left Apple in 2019 after 27 years and working on some of the most iconic tech products of all time, including the iPod, iPhone, MacBook Air, iMac, Apple Watch and even Apple Park. He remains a pillar of the industrial design space, known for making tech products thin, sleek and cool — objects of desire.

If this special edition Cloud Sport Band is actually real, it could well be the rarest Apple Watch band ever made. And yes, given how sought after Jony Ive-related products still are (and will continue be), I imagine it’d demand quite a pretty penny if one were to ever go up for auction.
