While unveiling his Spring 2016 collection this week in London, leading fashion designer Tom Ford showed off a special Apple Watch accessory i.e. a hook that slides into the the watch’s top band slot, turning the Apple smartwatch into a chic pocket watch with a chain (via CultofMac).

While the fashion designer’s newest fanciful dinner jackets drew in a flock of celebrity, the Apple Watch made a surprise appearance in the ready-to-wear collection. Rather than designing a fashionable Apple Watch band, the forward-thinking designer bridged Apple’s timekeeping accessory to the past by turning it into a pocket watch attached to a chain.

The source notes that there’s a metal piece to fill in the bottom opening as well. Of course it’s not completely practical as the Apple Watch won’t be able to measure the heart rate, and will require PIN code entry each time you want to check notifications. However, just using the smartwatch as a fashionable time piece seems to work fine, at least for a guy like Tom Ford.

    …while completely defeating the only benefit there was with a product like this.

    LOL! You buy the apple watch to not have to take phone out of pocket, then Tom Ford comes with this to allow you to put watch in pocket….

    That is the ugliest “pocket watch” i’ve ever seen

    You folks are thinking a little too functionally. I’m not saying I’m in the right market for something like this, but there are older rich people who go to parties and use pocket watches. It would be rude for such people to pull out their phones to check the time (in their circle’s eyes). This is for those people. If you don’t see the purpose of this product, you’re not their target market. I know I’m certainly not…
