Apple has reportedly filed to trademark the term iWatch in Russia. The report comes courtesy of Izvestia, a Russian newspaper, and states that Apple has filed an application for two International Classification of Goods and Services trademarks. The first is a 9th grade of Nice Classification, which covers computers and peripherals. The second is under the 14th classification, which relates to "hours."

The newspaper report says that the first trademark application for iWatch was filed in Jamaica on December 3, 2012. Around that time, the Apple rumor mill started pumping out rumors of an impending iWatch device. Of course, a trademark doesn't mean they are currently making an iWatch; the actual product could still be years off in the future.
