The replica chanel j12 in 18k gold is another topic of hot debate. I have previously estimated that it may be priced at between $5,000 - $10,000. Others have estimated prices from about $1,500 - $10,000. That is a pretty big gap in estimated pricing for the Apple Watch Edition. On one hand, the watches do use 18k gold (which is expensive), but on the other hand, we aren't sure exactly how much gold is in the case and what type of deal Apple has - as they are a company famous for securing good pricing on components and materials. At this point, I would be surprised if the Apple Watch Edition was priced at over $5,000, but also surprised if it was priced at under $1,500 or $2,000.
What is more interesting is where http://www.dmincwv.com/ will be sold. All of a sudden, Apple has created a product that might not be ideal for sale only at the Best Buy stores of the world, but rather, high-end boutiques and department stores. Apple didn't confirm anything, but they did offer an enthusiastic hint of "that is an interesting idea" when I brought up the topic of selling the Apple Watch in non-traditional outlets such as jewelers, watch stores, and department stores. Literally nothing is out of the question at this point in regard to where people might be able to purchase an Apple Watch, outside of buying directly from Apple.
Yes, of course the Apple Watch is a "watch." Many people, especially in the watch community, have defended their love of traditional mechanical watches by segmenting the Apple Watch in a category of high-end gadgets versus "watches." While I understand and perhaps even empathize with this sentiment, I disagree. If anything, the Apple Watch is what the wrist watch is meant to be in the 21st century. You might not like that, but it is the truth, when it comes to wearable wrist technology. Traditional watch lovers know (and even relish the fact) that their timepieces employ antiquated technology. Such technology might be produced using the most modern construction equipment and with innovative materials, but at the end of the day, no one can argue that a mechanical wrist watch would be able to compete with the sheer utility of a computer.
Having said that, wrist space is an incredibly useful place to put technology. It is easily accessible, easy to see, easy to wear, and most importantly, it is wholly convenient. As humans we have populated our wrists with devices to tell the time starting about 100 years ago, and today in 2014, we should be using the same space in order to offer a range of new information – that includes the time. The Apple Watch isn't a death blow to the original watch; in fact, it is the most watch-inspired consumer wrist gadget of all time - even more so than round-cased smartwatches, such as the Moto 360, which runs Android Wear.
