Apple Watch goes retro with Bucardo lockets [Watch Store]

by Ami Icanberry March 02, 2017

The Apple Watch doesn’t need to live on one’s wrist alone. Ladies, take notice! The Silver Constellation Locket by Bucardo is a new way to wear Apple Watch, bucking current trends by melding vintage style and tech.

And, sometimes fashion precedes functionality — in wearing this beautiful locket, the sensors on the rear of the Apple Watch obviously won’t be in contact with the skin, yet it’s such a unique and beautiful accessory that, for me at least, I’ll make an exception. It’s a watch hidden in a necklace. Let’s take a look.

The Silver Constellation Locket transforms the Apple Watch into a classic piece of functional, au courant jewelry. Conceal your Apple Watch much the way lockets have concealed secrets for centuries. It’s beautiful enough to gift.

Part of Bucardo’s Pendulum Collection, the locket takes its design cues from the way timepieces were originally worn, fusing Victorian-era sensibilities with a decidedly modern turn. An engraved star pattern dots this locket, inspired by the night sky. The center of each star is open to allow light to pass through.

To wear, align the cutout for the watch dial on the pocket watch cover to the Apple Watch. Then, simply slide the wrist straps out and slide the locket in. A striking and sturdy 38-inch metal chain completes the transformation.

The locket snaps into place, securely protecting the Apple Watch from scratches and dings. An open back allows for easy charging. The union of nostalgia and high-tech makes for a brand-new way to wear Apple Watch. Check out the Silver Constellation Locket and the entire Bucardo Pendulum Collection.
