    This is the best read out there about the Apple Watch's form. It's pretty cool to see a horological blog like Hodinkee get in on the action. I actually bought one of their Horween straps recently.

    Apple Watch from a watch enthusiast's point of view

    Here's a great take on Apple Watch by Benjamin Clymer on hodinkee. After reading this and after some time has passed I'm more optimistic about the watch. The fact that they cared so much about the design and knowing the magnitude Apple products get better with the future generations after an initial 1st gen product, I'm feeling it.

    Just wanted to share this great preview to the watch.

    Nice read. Do we think the visible screen size will be the same for the 38 and 42mm, with the border/bezel just being bigger on the 42? Just curious that the PPI would be better on the 38 if the actual screens were different sizes but same resolution.

    Also, has there been any indication that it can be worn "upside down" for people wanting it on their right wrist? (doesn't affect me as I'll wear on my left). Surprised Apple didn't go for the crown in the middle with a button above and below.

    42mm S/S with either loop or link for me!

    Apple Watch Screen Resolutions: 312 x 390 for 42mm Version, 272 x 340 for 38mm Version

    Apple Watch Will Allow Left-Handed Users to Choose Interface Orientation

    They say on website that you can wear them on both hands.
    And I believe the visible size will be the same.

    The 42mm has a larger visible screen size and they can be worn on either wrist.

    I notice in one of the photos for the Edition watch has a ceramic back, does this mean the back of the watch isn't made of gold? Would they have done this to make the Edition less expensive?

    That is the optical HR sensor. All :apple:Watches have the sensor.

    It's not ceramic but it does have a ceramic coating (backing) on the SS and Edition. Apple calls it composite.

    The sensors have sapphire lenses on the models with the ceramic back cover. The Sport models have a composite back with hard-coated optical polymer lenses.

    The black circle part on the back of the watch contain the heart rate sensor and the induction charger. It can't be gold -- if it were gold, it wouldn't work!
