Rapper Ludacris tonight has shown off a unique twist on the Apple Watch: a model encrusted with diamonds around the face’s bezel. Ludacris wore the gear to tonight’s Teen Choice Awards on Fox, and he posted a couple of pictures of the device on Instagram. It appears that taking the custom route allowed Ludacris to one-up his colleagues who were able to secure all-gold Apple Watch Editions with gold Link Bracelets from Apple in the run-up to the Apple Music launch. A close up shot of Ludacris’s Apple Watch is below.

    The rich know little about the problems of the poor – and care even less.

    Looks like crap. I guess money and taste don’t always go together.

  4. Hahahahaha. I guess nobody told him every other celebrity Apple paid to wear these things has abandoned them.

      We have seen proof to the oposite, only samsung has a history of paid celebrities positing with their apple devices their endorsements. If you are close to one of this celebrities you speak, please give examples. But taylor and other original celebrities using the apple watch have been seen with them several times
