The Apple Watch's "gauche" skeuomorphism

Apple hasn’t officially stated that Apple Watch uses an AMOLED display, but it’s sort of an open secret. The other thing is, regardless of the underlying display technology, iOS 6-style skeuomorphism would’ve felt downright gauche on the watch. I don’t think iOS or OS X needed to eschew skeuomorphic textures, but Apple Watch did.

This is odd given the Apple Watch's entirely skeuomorphic default state, watch faces that look exactly like traditional watch faces.
