    Might be what the retail packaging looks like. Can't really tell though. What do you guys and girls think?

    Yes, looks like they WILL be boxed with the strap on. We already know the edition will be in a much nicer box. This is the Stainless.

    I still picture the sport in a see through plastic. The models are so different. The boxes should be different.

    WOW. It is a lot bigger than I would have expected.

    Now he added a strap box. Looks like leather. He says he likes the link band.
    Hope he posts more soon.

    I'm not sure I understand how the packaging works. Especially in the first picture, the watch itself is sticking outside of the edge of the box. Has it been inserted backwards, maybe? (Also, the word "WATCH" printed inside appears to be backwards.) Are the accessories stored in the bottom part of the box? And is there something like a clear plastic cover covering the top of the box where the watch sits? Or is the part on the bottom actually the cover?

    Hmm wonder who this guy is and how he got hold of one. I don't think retail stores even get display units until Thursday sometime.

    Someone asked him in a comment but he never answers. He implies in another that he saw it at work during the middle of the day. He's in NYC.

    The packaging seems very un-Apple like. Usually Apple tends to design more minimalist packages that are more environmentally friendly....

    The guy isn't even an iPhone user anymore. He has a post from a week ago of his new Samsung (ewww) phone

    The watch straps box makes me suspect this is fake. The image on the box is dreadful.

    He must have gotten inundated with comments/questions, or got nervous because he shouldn't have posted anything publicly, because he's now made his account private. He's 15 minutes of fame are over apparently.

    The profile has gone private, I suspect in panic.

    Maybe the watch itself sits on its side in the groove and as you open the box you see it in profile. Much like the picture on the box and the app icon.
