The limited edition Black Unity Apple Watch Series 6 is becoming more difficult to get hold of, with the 44mm version currently sold out entirely.
First spotted by Brazilian journalist Pedro Henrique Nunes, stocks are very difficult to come by and anyone looking to get their hands on this particular model should probably look to place an order sooner rather than later.
Apple announced the limited edition Apple Watch Series 6 in January but never said how limited it would be. The watch was announced to celebrate Black History month.
Apple is introducing the Black Unity Collection, designed to celebrate and acknowledge Black history and Black culture. The collection includes a limited-edition Apple Watch Series 6, the Black Unity Sport Band, and a Unity watch face. As part of this effort, Apple is supporting six global organizations to help advance their missions in promoting and achieving equality and civil rights in the US and around the world: Black Lives Matter Support Fund via the Tides Foundation; European Network Against Racism; International Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights; Leadership Conference Education Fund; NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, Inc.; and Souls Grown Deep. The Black Unity Collection pays homage to the rich tradition and craft of quilting in the Black community and celebrates the colors of the Pan-African flag: red for the blood that unites people of the African Diaspora and was shed for their liberation, black for the people whose existence is affirmed by the flag, and green for the vibrant natural wealth of Africa, the Motherland. The Black Unity Sport Band is made from individual pieces of colored fluoroelastomer, which are assembled by hand and compression-molded into one. The Unity watch face creates an ever-changing pattern that dynamically shifts as Apple Watch moves.
There are of course other Apple Watch models to buy right now, not least the standard Apple Watch Series 6 model. That’s currently the best Apple Watch money can buy and that will remain the case until later this year. At that point we’d expect Apple Watch Series 7 to be announced although we don’t yet know what that will offer.
