Images of a unique Apple Watch band designed to celebrate former Apple design chief Jony Ive’s 50th birthday in 2017 have been posted on X.

Story goes that this unique Cloud Sport Band would’ve originally come with a Ceramic 42mm Series 2 Watch as a gift to Jony Ive for his 50th birthday, hence the “I50” engraved on the pin. Allegedly around 10 or so exist, most are a test batch with the finalized one given to Ive.

Some have regular silver buttons and some have black buttons. Seems Apple was experimenting with different techniques to make a unique band.
Looks great on S2 Ceramic, just how it would have been presented to Ive.

Hartley Charlton for MacRumors:

While the Sport Band has been a ubiquitous style for the Apple Watch since its introduction in 2014, only some models feature engraved pins, such as the Apple Watch Hermès and Black Unity band. These are invisible when the band is worn on the wrist but provide a subtle indication of the model’s special nature to the owner.
The white ceramic ‌Apple Watch Series 2‌ was the first of its kind, expanding to a new gray version with the Series 3. While there was no ceramic Apple Watch Edition for Series 4 models, Apple revived the high-end white ceramic Edition model for the Series 5 in 2019 – the last time we’ve seen the material used on the device.

MacDailyNews Take: Bring back ceramic Apple Watches, Apple!
