Tom Ford’s Apple Watch pocket watch is a hipster’s dream

It’s time to straighten your bowties and doff your bowler hats; designer Tom Ford has created an Apple Watch pocket watch.

Making hipsters around the world go weak at the knees, the Apple Watch mod has done away with the wearable’s costly – and far too traditional – wrist straps in favour of a silver chain.

Attached to a metal loop soldered to the top of the smartwatch’s body, this chain helps keep the device in true gentrified fashion close to the wearer’s chest – and breast pocket held iPhone.

Showcased during Ford’s spring/summer 16 London Collections Men show last week, the Apple pocket watch has since caused something of a stir, with admirers sharing snaps online.

Despite making you look like the James Bond of the Downton Abbey era, the DIY Apple Watch restricts some of the Moto 360 rival’s key features.

Although the device’s heart rate tracker and taptic feedback features will be pretty useless, you’ll look like a boss while missing those capabilities.
