So you want a Gold Apple Watch but you’re broke? Don’t worry, you can transform your stainless steel Apple Watch into a Gold Apple Watch on the cheap. One way is to spray paint it gold. Check out how to do it here. The other method, is also DIY, it costs a bit more but under $100 and it allows you to plate your steel Apple Watch with 24K gold.

Chemist Eic Knowll created a DIY kit packed with all the necessary ingredients to transform any Steel Apple Watch into a 24K Gold one.
