Apple extends company trademark into 'jewelry, clocks and watches'

Adds to evidence of upcoming iWatch

Apple is hoping to extend international trademarks on its name into Class 14, an area covering "jewelry, clocks and watches," reports say. In late December, the company is said to have applied for Class 14 protection in Ecuador, presumably as a shortcut to getting its priority recognized in more significant regions like the US and Europe. Similar filings were made in Mexico in early January, Norway in mid-February, and the UK in March. In the latter two countries, Apple applied for protections in a variety of other classes as well.

The applications add to a growing amount of evidence for the iWatch, since Apple doesn't make any other products that could fit under Class 14. Apple is rumored to be preparing an iWatch announcement for this September, in which case it will likely try to secure Class 14 protection around the world as quickly as possible. It began applying for "iWatch" trademarks last June.
