The Apple Watch collection features highly polished stainless steel and space black stainless steel cases. The display is protected by sapphire crystal. And there’s a choice of three different leather bands, a link bracelet, a Milanese loop, and a band made from high-performance.
Cold-forged stainless steel. Formulated for strength and beauty.
How a product is used should determine the materials from which it’s made. Apple Watch is designed to be worn during all your daily activities, from morning workouts to nights out. That’s why we use a cold-forging process that makes the 316L stainless steel 40 percent harder and less susceptible to nicks and corrosion. We also reduce impurities to achieve the mirror finish. An additional diamond-like carbon (DLC) layer gives the space black stainless steel its distinctive look.
Brilliantly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Next to diamond, sapphire is the hardest transparent material on earth. That makes it ideal for protecting the Retina display. To harvest the crystal, we use a very thin diamond-cutting wire. The sapphire is then precision-machined into its final form and polished for many hours to produce the desired finish.
Beautifully engineered bands and closures.
With designs made from fine top-grain leathers, durable high-performance fluoroelastomer, and custom-engineered stainless steel, the Apple Watch collection offers the widest array of band materials and closure styles. Each one is distinctive in its own right, yet perfectly matched to the collection.
