    So today, I happened to end up at the Apple Store here, and it was fairly empty with about 5 employees for each customer. Lots of watches to check out without the first few days of the appointment madness with time limits and lines.

    So, I really spent a good amount of time playing with some of the display watches, and I'm really on the fence, actually the more I play with them, the more I realize I don't want it. I decided to see what they are going for on the secondary market and it seems $750-$900 is not out of the question for the SG Sport, so I have decided I would rather have an $300 + profit than a watch I really have no desire to own.

    Anyone else just keeping their order open to get the watch and flip it?

    I haven't been to the store, so forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't the demo models only running a demo loop? You can't decide based on that.

    The prices are high b.c you cannot get them in store. By time your watch comes, others will have it and the prices will settle. You missed the boat.

    If I get mine in a week or so an they still aren't for sale in the store, no reason I shouldn't still be able to profit.

    Remember 98%+ of watch purchasers have nothing to do with forums and are not up to date on when things are shipping, they have no idea WTF confirmation emails mean.

    They just know their kid/partner/significant/themselves want one and can't get one or if they order the shipping estimate is June-July.

    You're not going to list Jack. When your watch arrives you will be like this:

    I suppose anyone can TRY to resell them for profit, but if prices settle and drop to the point where it's no longer worth the effort, simply get a refund from Apple, as long as it's done within the allotted timeframe. No risk, really.

    An easy $300

    But personally, i'm not interested is having some idiot buy it, then decide they don't like it, and don't like me because I gouged them, so they file a dispute with a simple mouse click, and the money goes back to them after they do whatever they want with the watch.

    Sound like fun?

    Welcome to the 'new' Ebay.

    If you think they need to prove anything your wrong. All they need to do is say it's defective, or wrong in anyway.

    Im just hoping the one I shipped out monday 'Sticks' I dont want to deal with an opened box that they decided they didnt like the apps / too complex and send it back - now I lose out on the sealed box because they have PP backing them.
    Positive feedback received!! :) SB Link is go!

    Yeah. Craigslist and a meeting at the bank for cash makes more sense.

    Why mess with ebay, Craigslist all day long, apple items sell like hot cakes on craigslist, well they do here in Los Angeles. I posted a broken(smashed screen) iphone6+ last week for $350 and sold it within an hour, I got like 25 replies with minutes of people wanting to come get it now.

    Post the watch for sale for 50 bucks less than what everyone else is asking(which is 750ish) right now, and Ill get a dozen email from people wanting to send it back to their home country within the hour.

    Yes, I didn't think of Craigslist as i'm a long time Ebay user, but this is surely the way to go.

    No, no, no. This is an Apple Watch, the thinnest water-resistant watch in the world. Singularly unique, sculpted in design, hand-crafted in China, and water-resistant to three atmospheres. This is THE sports watch of 2015. It tells time in Monte Carlo, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Rome, and Gstaad....

    ... How much for the gun?

    Not quite yet, still got about 10 more weeks left of my 30's, before I hit the milestone.

    But still, TP remains one of my favorite comedies ever.

    I will either flip or return 2 of the 4 we ordered. We only ordered the blue sport to see if it would really ship that fast.

    Bought a 42mm Aluminum and sold it for a $220 profit that paid for the upgrade to Stainless for me. I was happy with that.
