A photo taken by his assistant shows Karl Lagerfeld wearing a custom gold Apple Watch that MacRumors suspects could be worth up “upwards of $25,000.” Looks great Karl, but did you know that it hasn’t been set up yet? On his blog, John Gruber noted Lagerfeld’s decision to choose form over function.

p.s. Lagerfeld hasn’t even set this one up yet — the screen that’s shown here is the setup screen for pairing with your iPhone. You point your iPhone’s camera at your watch on this screen and it figures out which way it’s oriented, and boom, they’re paired.

Who needs a watch that works when you can have a watch that matches your mesh glove?
