I'm curious if any members here who got the Apple Watch Gold and Rose Gold edition still have theirs and if it's even used by them

I just want the box that that watch came in. I've looked around forever for one but was never able to find it.

There is one member who does. I believe he was from Thailand, he displayed photos of the Gold edition. I don’t recall their username, but they do frequent the Apple Watch forum from time to time.

Follow up question, has anyone seen one in the wild? I am really only around people well heeled enough to own one in airports and can say I have never seen one.

I haven’t, but I imagine with the gold stainless now available, it will make it even difficult for some to distinguish the 18k v.s. Gold Stainless, which obviously the gold stainless being the more ubiquitous Model.

I can guarantee you that anyone that can afford that watch couldn't give a monkey's about what you thought of their posts :D
I’d actually argue the opposite: anyone who spend that much on an Apple Watch is EXACTLY the type of person who desperately cares what random strangers think of them—hence the useless extravagance.

will, I think it's clear that you're the sort of person who cares about random strangers, because you're deeply judgemental and seemingly uptight.

It's natural that you think other people are too.

I'm sorry. I just don't think wealthy people care about your opinion.

Who knows, maybe they do. Go ask the next guy who see coming out of his Panamera if he gives a toss about you and get back to us with his reply :D

Astute psychoanalysis, but perhaps you’re projecting juuuuuuuuust a bit. ;)

Oh, and I asked the bloke in the Panamera and he told me to tell you that isn’t an even remotely apt comparison to the topic at hand. :rolleyes:

The gal with all of her plastic bits driving the G Wagon got all in a fuss though.

It Doesn’t matter what the Apple Watch Edition cost today or back then, it doesn’t change what it is, it’s a smart watch, it’s not a high-end mechanical watch that may hold or even gain value. The Apple Watch Edition watch for those who Purchased it, obviously have the expendable means to do so, really not that big of a deal.

Seems like timing of this thread has summoned forth the very infrequent appearance of an authentic Apple Watch Edition. This posting on eBay is loaded with what would now be considered misinformation (including the original listing price), but someone is obviously fishing. Maybe a pawn shop or estate sale?

oh wow!

i feel like people would buy at the 6k range if they were huge apple fans tbh because it is a piece of the history
