    It's not a real Edition, it's a store demo unit. As far as I know, demo units use glass instead of sapphire on the displays because it's clearer and less reflective than sapphire, so it looks better under store lighting.

    Also, if it's a demo unit it's essentially stolen property.

    It's also 18K gold plated rather than solid 18K gold.

    You won't be able to use it as an actual AW because it's crippled.

    It is indeed legitimate as an actual Edition demo unit. However, it's Apple's property and not meant to be sold.

    The flip side to this coin is EBay had a scam
    Last year, where superficial 'Edition' Watches were being sold. They weren't Editions, only gold plated stainless steel with false backings and writings. A few buyers were out $10,000. A Watch sale at this price needs to be conducted in person, with the serial number verified by Apple and then confirmed by a jeweler for authenticity.

    It is also Apple property and stolen since Apple doesn't sell them.

    So it's not gold just goldlated ? I have a friend who have a special machine which will be able to install oryginal watch os and erase demo unit. But will be microphone, speaker and other study working. The price for this watch iż 500$

    Correct. The Edition demo units are gold plated, which is why they're offering them on eBay for only $500. Otherwise, they'd be melting down the gold.
