Russian Apple Watch – level 2

13-08-2015 15:00

A Russian luxury jewellery brand launched something special for Russian patriots – a customised Apple Watch. They can choose from three different models.

Each model is about Russia’s important times – the Russian Empire, The Soviet Union, and the current times. People chose one symbol of these times for each watch.

The watch about the current times shows the panorama of Moscow, the name of President Putin and his signature. The brand says that Vladimir Putin is a symbol of a strong country, so it uses his image.

Last year, the company sold a special edition customised iPhone with the image of the president’s face.

Difficult words: brand (a type of product by a company), launch (to start selling something), customised (made special, individual).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
