Does anyone know whether the Apple Watch Edition will be available on the EPP and Military stores? I'm considering getting a ceramic Edition for its durability, but when I click buy I get a "The page you're looking for can't be found" error message.

Also, if I buy the Edition at full price, can I purchase AppleCare+ separately with the EPP/Military discount? Weird how the Apple Watch Hermès is available but not the Edition.

The editions are on the Apple employee and friends and family discounts so I would imagine they would be on the epp.
you can use your epp.Have the specialist order it through the Isaac. And then attach Apple care to the transaction
Epp is also available thru calling Apple. You’ll have to provide proof of employment which may include email address, paystub and badge id

I logged in on the military EPP site and click on the Apple watch edition and click BUY and it said the page I am looking for cannot be found.

I've tried talking to specialists both in store and on the phone and they know nothing. It's a bit frustrating really. A lot of them said none of the Series 5 are eligible for the EPP and military discount until I pulled up the website showing the discounts on the regular, Nike, and Hermès models.

Me too! It's so weird that there's a "buy" option but then sends you to a "the page you're looking for can't be found" error. From my experience if a product is not eligible for a discount you can usually still buy them through the EPP or military store but at full price.

I am on an employee purchase scheme and there has no discount available on the latest Pro phones and edition watches on the EPP site . I called Apple and checked and they confirmed it

Strange that the AW Edition gets that screen for the Military discount. Especialy, like you said Hermes is on their and I purchased my Apple Watch Pro 11 with the discount. Wish Apple would fix that, as would like to get one with the Military discount. :)

Wish the Apple Watch Edition would be added to the Military discount already. Sure seems to be taking a long time.

Yea, unfortunately, Apple does not add every single product to the Military discount page. Most items are, but not everything...

I qualify for the Mil disc too, but bought last weekend when the GPS ed was $399, on sale. Is the Mil price cheaper?

Yeah, all non-Edition models are 10% off. So your GPS-only watch (I'm guessing it's a 44mm?) would be $386 instead of the usual $429 with the mil discount.

I know :( But I really wanted the ceramic watch so I bit the bullet and got it full price instead.

I know. Think I won't be able to wait any longer and just get the Edition TI.... :)
