Honey Dipped Plating has announced its accepting bitcoin for its gold plating service for Apple Watches and bands as of November 3.

The gold plating service makes it possible for the average consumer to obtain a regular apple watch that looks almost identical to the gold version of the Apple watch for only a fraction of the retail price.

Brian Yang, CEO Honeydipped.com commented:

 "Bitcoin, which utilizes blockchain technology goes hand in hand to our alternative and disruptive thinking here at honeydipped.com."

The company provides gold plating services for the stainless steel Apple Watch and Band in gold or rose gold. In fact, the quality of the 24-karat upgrade is as good as the real thing that even Apple staff couldn’t find visual difference between the Honeydipped.com plated version and the US$17,000 Apple Watch Edition.

The gold plating service costs US$299 while already plated watches are also available.

The gold plating method used completely immerses the Apple Watch in a safe solution for a thick uniform coating that is highly resistant to fading. Moreover, the company provides 2-year warranty for all orders.

BitPay has been selected as the payment processor for bitcoin transactions. In other words, Honey Dipped Plating will be able to avoid BTC price volatility by converting cryptocurrency payments to fiat right on the spot.
