I thought it would be fun to collect all the celebrity and television sightings in one thread. (I couldn't find a similar thread despite search.) I know there have been early Edition sightings posted (Beyonce, Pharell, etc.) but as time goes by, more and more are noticed.

I'll start. This morning I saw Tamron Hall from MSNBC sporting a nice Milanese AW.

Simon Pegg was wearing a SS with Milanese Loop on the Graham Norton show a couple of weeks back. Looked good!

Simon is a genuine geek so might even have paid money for it...

I suppose some would use the "celebrity" title loosely with him, but Rylan Clark (past X Factor Uk contestant) host of Big Brother's Bit on the Side wears a SS Milanese Loop! So jealous

Stephen Colbert was wearing one with a white sports band, likely the stainless steel model, on his YouTube video shaving his Colbeard.

Looking at that Business Insider list, I find it kind of amazing that Rupert Murdoch, Tom Brady, Bob Iger and David Beckham's kid -- two people whom you would assume could do things like buy Edition watches for their goldfish -- went with the Watch models. Also it seems like Apple has sold nowhere near as many of the Edition watches as it has given away.

I also want to know if Sophie Turner's watch has an app that tells her how closer winter is.

Totally. I think for some folks, they just don't like gold, even if they can afford it. I for one, even if I could afford the gold, would stick with the SS cause I just don't like gold on me. So maybe that's why some have the Watch.

I'm sure that's part of it. Also, if Apple is truly giving these to celebrities, they probably want a range of models out there to appeal to a wide range of customers.

Charlie Rose has got one too:

And it's very difficult to tell, but I think I can see Neil degrasse Tyson also has one? Can't really make it out but I think I see a shiny digital crown poking out under that sleeve.

Just flipped through this. What strikes me is how popular the sport band is regardless of the wealth of the owner or the model of watch. It truly is a high quality, super comfortable band.

Also, while I'm not really into gold, if I ever got my hands on that special gold model with the gold link bracelet, I'd be wearing that one for sure. It's super sharp.

Totally. They Sports Band definitely looks good. I have the classic buckle, White Sports Band and earlier today, stopped by the Apple Store and picked up a Black Sports Band. Looks very high end - especially with the Stainless Steel Watch.

The gold one is definitely sharp though.

I kind of see Tyson wearing one too. At first, it looked too silver, but then it looked totally like one.

Honestly, you could give me all the money in the world and I'd still take the standard watch over the gold one, it just isn't my thing. I'd never be able to afford one but I'd like to see a silver, platinum or titanium watch next time around.

It's definitely better than the FitBit bands. Those things are like tire shreds compared to my WSB. Now I totally want to get either a leather loop or Milanese loop at some point, but this thing really isn't bad. Another reason I can't stand when people describe it as "rubber" or "plastic." It feels like neither.

But I sure would love to see Apple figure out colors. White and black, OK. Then they always have to go with the baby blue, lime green and pink before anything else. CAN A BROTHA GET A STRAIGHT-UP RED PRODUCT AT LAUNCH? Apple does all this Product (Red) stuff and seems to not understand the market for red accessories, or other plain colors for that matter. If you're going to create 15,000 SKUs by including bands with the watches, give us a little more choice.

I agree! I'd love a navy sports band. And, a Product (Red) one for sure!

I'm after a red and a navy sport band to go with my white/black/pink bands. After I can obtain those two my collection will be complete
