    Only $50 more for the 42mm is nice. Some predicted $100.

    I'll 'probably' Start with the $599 base SS model but am very disappointed at the timing and that we have to wait a month for pre orders to start. I am flying to Europe on May 11 so if I do not manage to get quickly into the shipping queue I'll have to wait until I get home. I doubt I will want to pick one up in France or Germany even if I can because I am not using up my entire duty allowance on one item.

    10000 dollars? lol

    Gold watch is for beverly hills and Manhattan apple store.

    Apple is clearly trying to move to luxury store like Louis Vuitton and Gucci levels.

    Confirmed, if I am going to get one its going to be a Sport 42mm. The SS is too rich for my blood ATM.

    The whole April 24th thing really irritates me. At least I can go play with it on April 10th, but that was the day I hoped it would launch. Can Apple ever launch a product early?

    same here...over a month before pre-orders start is a little disappointing. I fly to London on 1st May, would love to have my watch by then
