When I first saw this (on MacRumors) I thought, 'oh cool new band colors are coming'. And I especially thought the orange and navy looked nice. And it didn't surprise me because Jony Ive had indicated Apple was working on more styles (can't remember which interview it was). I'm sure events like this our plan long pants so it's not like Apple can just pull out because shipments to consumers might be delayed.
How many of these "legitimate, long-time, hard-nosed" Apple fans are even interested in the Watch period? And how many think Apple spends too much time focusing on "iToys" and the like?

He posted a picture of it on Instagram. The picture got over 140K views and 1600 comments. That's esentially free marketing. The kind of...
Love the red and navy bands. Maybe we'll see these announced at WWDC? And before anyone disses these bands....in John Gruber's Watch review he called them "luxurious".
I saw a photo on instagram yesterday of a couple Apple designers with Marc. I wonder if they were also at this event.
Phil does realize he's in Milan, right?
Wait, so Apple can only do something in red if it's going to charity?
