The Apple Watch Edition is the most expensive model of Apple's first wearable and it can even go up to $17,000. If you don't have that amount of money, but you'd still love to have a gold-plated Apple Watch, then this new KickStarter campaign could provide a more affordable way to do it.
Midas Touch is a Kickstarter project which consists in a $100 kit that you can use to gold plate the Watch yourself with 24K gold. Eric Knoll, the man behind the project, says the following:
"Turn the steel version of the Apple Watch into the gold version. How? Order the Midas Touch gold plating kit and do it yourself. Includes the real gold. Roll like a mega rich baller with your gold plated watch. They will not know it's not the $10,000 version, unless they remove your watch from your wrist and look at the serial number on the back."
The kit is only for the stainless steel Apple Watch models so far, but a solution for the aluminum Sport models is in the works, as well. You can pledge to the crowd funding campaign by following the link at the end, if this is something you'd be interested in.
