My watch broke. Its my fault and Im happy to pay full retail price to purchase a replacement. However, Apple REFUSES to sell me a replacement watch (aka a watch with no band). Numerous Apple employees have told me that the retail price for a 42mm Stainless Steel watch is $550 but they will not let me order one. They are insisting that I have to purchase a second expensive new band first. Thats ridiculous. I do not wish to purchase a new band. Im very happy with the nice leather band I already have. Their sales people are hell bent on upselling me a new band before they will allow me to purchase a replacement watch. I wonder if they work on commission. They are pushier than the average used car sales man. I want to be really clear. Im not asking Apple for any special treatment. All Im asking for is to purchase a replacement part. I dont think thats unreasonable but apparently Apple does. Please feel free to add you broken watch experience to this thread.
