With roughly 72 hours left until the formal commencement of IFA 2015, and a slew of exciting mobile announcements scheduled for September 2 and 3, it became less and less likely in the past few days that Motorola would make an appearance at Berlin’s glitzy trade show to unveil the second-generation Moto 360.

Instead, Lenovo, the American device manufacturer’s Chinese parent company, has just notified us of a September 8 Shanghai-set event. The press affair is labeled with a not-so-cryptic “It’s time” tag, and the invitation is made complete by a picture very clearly showing the top half of a new Moto 360 smartwatch.

What’s intriguing about the teaser image is it stars a previously unseen gold model of the Moto 360 2, adorned with a swanky matching metal gold band. This is even different from the first-gen “champagne gold” version, and it suggests Lenovo could be planning to tackle upscale Apple Watch configurations head-on.

Of course, one must wonder if luxury timepiece buyers can be persuaded to splash their cash on Android Wear gadgets, though starting soon enough, they’ll be able to also pair them with iPhones. Another question on our minds concerns a possible second venue of the Moto 360 2015 announcement, given Westerners will probably want to check out the smartwatch in the flesh ASAP too.

Might September 8 see the wearable device debut in China and the United States or United Kingdom? You’ll be the first to find out if you stay in touch.
