The custom Apple Watch has a Space Gray aluminum case inscribed with the words "Black Unity" on the back. The watch comes with a Black Unity Sport Band that Apple says was inspired by the colors of the Pan-African flag, and the band's metal pin has a custom laser-etched message that reads "Truth - Power - Solidarity."

The Black Unity Apple Watch Series 6 starts at $399, while the Black Unity Sport Band is also available to order separately for $49. Apple said the watch will be available in February only, while the band will remain available throughout the year. Orders are currently estimated to ship in one business day on Apple's online store.

The limited-edition Apple Watch is complemented by the new "Unity" watch face in watchOS 7.3, also based on the Pan-African flag.
