There have been countless options for Apple Watch straps and bands made of leather, nylon, metal, wood, ceramic, etc. We have been reviewing quite a few, from major manufacturers to smaller workshops which most of them are able to deliver great value for money, from an Apple Watch band collector point of view.
But if you are looking for something different from a normal watch strap or leather cuff, the Black Rhodium Apollo Cuff, the newest member of the Ultimate Cuff family, may be something you are looking to turn your Apple Watch into beautiful accessory.

The Ultimate Cuff – Goodbye strap, hello cuff!
Proudly made in the United States, the Ultimate Cuff for Apple Watch has shown its creativity and ambition to turn the Apple Watch into a trendy and stylish accessory with personality.
Started with soft feminine designs with modern look, such as The Cleo, The Coco and The Diana, the outlet has welcomed a new member that fills in the masculine need in the community – The Apollo, made of Rhodium, has an industrial-textured design that presents itself with an edgier vibe.
The Apollo Cuff is packed in a simple, elegant collier box and well sit on a soft form insert like what you would expect from a piece of jewellery or bracelet.
The Apollo Cuff works perfectly with any 38mm or 42mm Apple Watch. The setup process is intuitive. Simply slide the watch into the connectors on both sides of the cuff and you are ready to go. You will need to bend a little bit before you can put on the cuff and secure it on your wrist.
After trying the Apollo Cuff for about a week, here are some thoughts:
- Unique industrial-textured design rarely found in market
- Fashionable and trendy design turns Apple Watch into beautiful accessory serving as accompany to other accessories such as bracelets
- High quality precious material
- Seemless installation
- Comfortable to wear
- Flexible for small and large wrists
- The design is not perfect for all Apple Watch charging docks. It works fine with relatively open stands like those from Belkin, but not like Griffin WatchStand or Amber for Apple Watch.
- Limited color choice for now looking for future expansion
