    It has several errors anyway. E.g., the Edition model with the midnight blue strap is only available in 42mm and where are the missing SS models with the link bracelets and Milanese loop? And what's up with the non-existent link brackets in yellow and rose gold for the Editon models?

    $50 for anodizing the aluminum in Space Gray?!! I doubt it. The $30 jump from 38 to 42mm in the Sport model seems too low and the $100 jump from 38 to 42mm in SS is too high. Plus the Stainless model starting at $650?!

    I'm not saying it can't be true, but if it is, DAMN! :eek:

    I wonder if Apple will layout prices like this. While I understand and appreciate variability, it's pretty complex - even for some like me who is an avid fan.

    All the aluminium Watches are anodized... It's just that Space Gray is the only model which is actually dyed during the andodizing process. :)

    Anodizing protects the surface finish against discoloration, as otherwise you could have the pure aluminium surface oxidizing (essentially rusting), causing ugly-looking blotches to appear which are hard to remove, and which would wear away the material of the case if polished off.

    I know, in fact all Apple products that have been made out of aluminum have either been polished or anodized. That's why I said the extra $50 is ridiculous since they are all being anodized but the only thing that is being done different is color is being added.
