Apple hasn’t been shy about gifting the Apple Watch to celebrities in an effort to promote the new device. Now, it looks like the company may have designed a custom red sport band for one special person.

Professional British rugby player and cyclist Will Carling shared an image of the new smartwatch on Twitter with what looks like a one-of-a-kind band. Apple currently offers the sport band in pink, but not red. MacRumor suggests that we might see something similar pop-up in the future as part of the company’s Product Red lineup, though that’s just speculation for now.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen custom Apple Watch models offered to celebrities. The company previously gifted an Edition model with a special gold link bracelet to fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. It looks pretty awesome, but we’re almost afraid to ask how much something like that might cost.

The Apple Watch Edition with a special gold strap probably costs far more than the high-end $17,000 price, but a red sport band probably wouldn’t be too expensive if it gets an official launch.
