Today, Pad and Quill unveiled a new line of accessories for the upcoming Apple Watch, including the “Luxury Pocket” charging stand.
The Luxury Pocket Stand is inspired by old pocket watch stands (as seen in the image above) and is hand carved from a single piece of African mahogany or American cherry wood. The stand is also collapsible which allows users to fold it up and take it with them on-the-go.
“If you could hold time in your hand and keep it from slipping through your fingers, you would have mastered a feat indeed. Mr. PQ keeps his grandfather’s gold pocket watch on a gold chain thereby accomplishing that feat literally and symbolically. It was with his grandfather’s award winning work ethic in mind that he set apart with our design team to create the Luxury Pocket Stand for Apple Watch. Hewn from a single piece of American Cherry or African Mahogany, the Pocket Stand is then hand finished with furniture grade oil and assembled in our Minneapolis shop.
Equipped with an inlet that cradles your charging magnet, the Pocket Stand will be a beautiful addition to your bedside table. Fold it shut with magnet in tow and it becomes a slender case that slips streamline into a pocket or bag.”
The Luxury Pocket Stand is available for the pre-order price of $69.99, but will increase to $79.99 when it is released in May.
Apple will begin taking pre-orders for the Apple Watch on April 10, at which point the device will be on display in retail stores. The Apple Watch will begin shipping on April 24 in several countries, including Canada and the United States. The device starts at $449 for the smaller (38mm) aluminium Sport model, and the stainless steel version starts at $699 with several models coming in at over $1000. The high-end 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition will start at $13,000 with some models costing as much as $22,000.
