    UPS guy just got here with a couple of packages to my office.

    He dropped all of them off as usual, I signed for one... and then he told me that one package needs very special care.

    For the Apple Watch I needed to sign my name, print my name, and he verified my ID as well. He said that there was a security guard waiting for him in the lobby of my building in case something goes wrong. I work in a building on Madison Avenue in Manhattan just to give you some scope of my location.

    Pretty crazy, I wonder if this type of care is standard?

    Here's a picture of my newest baby. I have a wide collection of Swiss watches that will be getting some rest for a while now.

    yeah that's the type of security i'd expect from an Edition not the standard Watch...

    good to know i guess?

    The only thing I can think of is since it was delivered to an office, the instructions might be to verify the ID to make sure the person signing is the recipient.

    It looks GIANT on your wrist buddy, maybe it's the lighting giving that illusion.

    i dunno, we get packages here all the time and i sign for other people very often.

    its both the lighting plus my wrist actually being really small.

    i am used to wearing large watches though :)

    sorry, standard Apple Watch here haha

    would never spend 10 grand on something that will probably "need" to be replaced in 2 years

    I know it's not the norm, but Apple may have had special instructions. Just a theory. It might even be the drivers prerogative if they so chose- cya sort of thing.

    Does the face rotate automatically or is that a setting?

    There are plenty of people who spend around $10k on first class airfare. Several times in less than a year. Edition Watch is a no-brainer for them.

    for sure. not judging other people's decisions here, i'm just not apple's demographic with the Edition.

    it will be huge in asia 100%

    Congrats, it looks great on you!

    Mine is on a truck and the rest of the family has theirs stuck in processing. I have to go pick up kid from school about when the UPS driver is due here so I may not see mine today. I wish it could have been delivered to hubby's office but he said no way, it's unprofessional for him to receive personal packages there. It depends on the office I guess.

    It's fun to see your watch though. Thanks for sharing the photo. Enjoy!
