    depends if you want to buy it... heck, 99.9999% people agree that 17K for Apple watch is ridiculous, but there are those who is willing to pay for them (or at least wear them when they are given to you free of charge)

    I want it. Just don't want to overpay much over MSRP.

    I paid $880 (Regular price | Incl. Taxes)

    Albeit it's in Canadian dollars, which not long ago was equal to the US dollar.

    Also the fact it'll be on my door Friday helps. But I gotta pull the trigger fast so he can re-route the shipping address

    I think you are getting scammed

    There isn't a black SS with black sport band combo.

    The only combo for a SS Black was with the black link. Be careful!

    Don't count on getting it Friday if u do a package intercept while in transit. If u could change the address with apple before it left, then maybe. But I don't think that's even an option at this point.

    You title says SS Black Watch with black sport band (which doesn't exist).

    That is different than the SS with black sport band.

    well the title of the thread is "$862 for 4/24 delivery of SS black watch 42mm with black sport band"

    So if it is a stainless steel with black sport band pay the $263 for no guarantee it is going to show up Friday.

    clearly whoever is selling this decided to include sports band instead of the links... pretty smart move if you ask me

    I rather have the links, that will fetch more in ebay seperately

    Well I see their Apple invoice. With price paid and model of watch

    ----------

    Ok. I figured out what you guys mean. This was my mistake. I wasn't even aware they had an actual black case. This isn't black. It's regular SS with sport band

    I'm basically losing $200 over the course of waiting 2 months.

    Well. Pulled the trigger. I can't resist. This was the best deal with the smallest mark up I could find. After eBay and PayPal fees he might make $100.

    Well... I hate to tell you this, but I think you paid extra for nothing. None of the SS black sports band 42mm have moved out of processing yet. So as far as the seller knows, it might not arrive Friday.

    I wouldn't mind sport. But the prices are 100% mark up. Stupid. Plus I wanted the crystal sapphire display

    ----------

    Not at all. It's wishful thinking for the both of us. He feedback is 407 with 100%

    Good deal if you want it. Time is money. If you have the money, and are willing to pay extra to have it early go for it. But yes, that is the premium most buyers on eBay are paying
