4th wave and still no Finland. Shame. Seems like they're slowly but regularly dripping small waves of countries though, kind of unusual.

Countries with Siri supported languages first I suppose. Without Siri, the watch make little sense.

Still no love for Austria.
But I can understand Apple's reasoning - a launch in a massive market like Austria would probably overwhelm Apple's supply chain.

Well, New Zealand ain't that populated either, so it might be a language problem with Siri;-)? I can hardly understand Austrians when they speak, so how hard mus that be for Siri:p

You do know that you can purchase an American "cash" card and have one shipped to you immediately right? Through Visa, MasterCard or American Express... The delivery address has nothing to do with it.

Assuming that the prices equate to what we pay in the US, if I were in the market for the Rose Gold Watch, I would definately buy it in Russia.... Just so I can say i spent a million on a watch. :D:p:);)

As we now know Apple cares a lot about celebrity opinions (I am looking at you Taylor), maybe we can get our Arnold Schwarzenegger to petition for Austria getting the Apple Watch… ;) If that doesn't work, there still is Conchita Wurst…
