The highly anticipated Apple Watch still doesn’t have a release date, but that hasn’t stopped at least one member of the fashion world from snagging a picture of the wearable device early. On Monday, k3ith of the MacRumors Forums shared an image from Vogue international editor Suzy Menkes’ Instagram which clearly shows off someone wearing an Apple Watch.

“So here is that new Apple Watch gleaming and glinting and performing at the dinner table!” wrote Menkes. “Who owns the arm?! A free Apple Watch for anyone who guesses right! (Sorry guys only kidding…)”

The image was originally published on January 9th, and most of the commenters on the feed are leaning toward the mystery owner being Marc Newsom, an industrial designer who actually founded a watch company of his own in 1994.

Unfortunately, Menkes is not giving away an Apple Watch, but seeing the device out in the wild should definitely help substantiate the rumors that Apple is planning to launch the watch in March.

The biggest question is how much Apple’s first wearable is actually going to cost. We’ve given it our best guess, but we won’t know for sure until we find a believable leak or Apple announces the prices itself.
