[Update: Mashable says the exclusive Apple Watch models (pictured above) will feature yellow gold and silver aluminum color options with dark red straps.]

Apple is making two exclusive Apple Watch Sport designs available for certain markets to celebrate the Chinese New Year, set to take place February 8 this year.

A translation of Apple’s announcement indicates that the models will be available for sale until February 22 or while supplies last.

Exclusive models for Chinese New Year…We’re celebrating the new year with two special Apple Watch Sport models, available until 22 February.

Apple will be offering the two special models in markets where the Chinese New Year is celebrated with the announcement message appearing briefly on its China, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan web pages before being removed earlier today…

While “Buy Now” and “Shop Now” links for a short time appeared on Apple’s website, it looks like the company might have launched the announcement a bit prematurely. It’s unclear when Apple actually plans to officially make the two exclusive models available for sale or how if at all they might be priced differently than other Sport models.

Apple last introduced new Apple Watch models in September when it introduced a new Sport collection with yellow and rose-gold anodized models and new Sport and Leather band options. (Via MacRumors)
