    I am amazed on what engineers like him do. I barely got by college algebra and trust me, I went to tutoring any chance I could get. I cant even imagine those advance math classes:eek: .

    Surprised Tim doesn't have one. Guess he think it's too expensive... or it could send the wrong image. Steve also looks like the type who would've preferred the SS model.

    I can't quite tell, is that rose gold or yellow gold? It looks good, but I do think I prefer SS with the black band.

    Hard to tell if it's gold or stainless. Could be yellow gold with midnight blue buckle.

    I've seen him wearing rose gold with white sport band but that obviously wouldn't look right with a suit.

    I like Tim Cook , he can wear anything, and chooses to wear the SS with a white band. I'm not in favour of the apple execs wearing the edition.

    Why shouldn't an Apple exec be able to use a product they make? I'd rather people wear what they like than wear something just so they don't appear a certain way to outsiders. Eddy Cue wears the stainless steel watch but has a sizable car collection (that cost an "obscene" amount of money) that he's shown off to app developers. I don't think wearing the stainless steel watch means he's one of us.

    Maybe Tim wears stainless steel simply because his personal taste isn't gold. I haven't seen any of them wearing a Sport watch.

    It's definitely yellow gold with midnight blue classic buckle.

    Maybe Tim Cook is also down to earth and not pretentious .... Who cares, I like the fact he wears a SS with the White bands, it's very apple in my opinion.

    So if someone wears a gold watch that means they're pretentious?

    Considering wearing gold basically advertises the impression of being wealthy, this is only true if the wearer is not actually wealthy.

    So definitely not applicable to Jony Ive or any Apple executive.

    As far as being the designer that watch is his "baby". I don't blame him for wanting to keep his most expensive baby close by. Different story for everyone else... But honestly - who cares. This is a drop in the bucket for most apple VP's.

    I don't think so. We all like attention so what's wrong with acting on it in a harmless way, that is wearing your earned gold watch?

    I suspect he's got one of each, really. And a good many bands. Why not?

    I'm surprised he's not rocking the $25k gold link bracelet That Beyonce and 1 other guy has.

    Hah, was going to say the same.

    Hopefully his Apple Watch can help with that.

    Wow. Shocking. Seems like he isn't burning the midnight oil as much any more.
