Apple Watch goes retro with Bucardo lockets [Watch Store]

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.

Sent the wrong one, twice

Never even got the right case for my phone. I got sent the same case twice, not even the case for my phone.

Good morning Rebbecca, I apologize for this. I have checked my system and cannot see any correspondence with you regarding this. Please email me adel@cultofmac.com with the case you actually received, so I can get this sorted for you? Many thanks, Adel.

Great band

My hubby loves the feel and color of the bands

Not impressed

No real easy way to attach cables to it. Also, can't easily use Qi charging for iPhone... The bamboo wood part of it is nice though, even if not very useful. I bought this as an experiment to see how it would work out. Having to actually plug the iPhone cable in to the phone is not what I would call convenient. This will probably end up as a paper weight.

Delightful!

The Charging Station is just what I was looking for to charge my iPhone and Apple Watch at night. It is attractive AND very functional for my purposes.
