Now you can get a 24K Gold Plated Apple Watch on a $100 Budget

$100 DIY kit lets you gold plate your Apple Watch.

Solid gold offerings from Apple never come cheap. The fever starts with the iPhone and has made its way down to its smartwatch, dubbed the Apple Watch. It’s a well established fact that gold baths don’t come cheap and if there is someone claiming to do it for cheap, it is probably too good to be true. Well, in this case, it might actually be true.

A Kickstarter project, dubbed as Midas Touch Project allows you to give your Apple watch the gold treatment that it deserves, and that too while not being to taxing on your wallet. The Midas Touch project offers a step-by-step kit for owners of the prestigious Apple Watch to gold plate their device for a price tag of just $100, and $150 if there is a metal band in the equation. Comparing these price with the price to send your Apple Watch to be gold plated by professionals, it’s a steal.

Of course this goes without saying that the end result of this gold plating will be dependent on the steadiness of your hand, so basically the finish of the gold plating is entirely in your hands. But on the other side, there are obvious advantages of it as well. Now that you have the kit with you, you no longer have to worry about the gold wearing off, as you can simply repair it by repeating the exact same process that you followed for plating your Apple watch in the first place.

Lastly, should you run into some unexpected issues with your device and have to send it in for a warranty claim, simply use an abrasive polish and you are good to go. We couldn’t be more excited about this, as for the very first time, we get to give our gadgets a lovely royal gold bath and that too at a dirty cheap price. You can also pledge to the campaign and get your kit. Not to forget, shipping starts from August.
