Very, very expensive, apparently. When the Apple Watch was first unveiled by Apple in September of last year, many industry watchers speculated that the gold edition of the tech giant's first ever wearable device could cost $5,000. That is already quite high by any standard, but then Apple announced that the golden Apple Watch would actually fetch at least $10,000. For sure, many people expected that the price could not get any higher than that.
This should make you wonder (because like 90 percent of all people in the planet, all we can ever do is wonder) -- how exactly does an Apple Watch have that kind of price tag? Well, for starters, the Apple Watch being offered by Goldgenie is made with 18 karat gold and then encrusted with diamonds. Goldgenie does offer a more affordable variant, which is a gold-plated stainless steel Apple Watch that costs $3,000, but when it comes to the other extreme, the renowned gadget gilder is really bringing it on.
And apart from offering an Apple Watch with gold and diamonds, Goldgenie is also selling variations that come in rose gold, platinum, and Swarovski crystal treatments. The average buyer may just settle for a plastic band for their Apple Watches, but for those who want materials for their band that are more exotic, Goldgenie offers some options, that is if you can afford it. You can have your band in python or even crocodile skin. You can also go for very loud colors like cherry red or maybe even fuchsia. Of course, for the filthy rich who love an outdoor workout, they can also get a rubber strap for their Apple Watches, for better comfort when wearing their diamond-encrusted devices.
Goldgenie will start accepting preorders for its super luxurious Apple Watches beginning on April 9th. To make reservations, buyers will have to pay a deposit of 50 percent, with the remaining balance to be paid after April 24th, the official date when the Apple Watch launches in stores everywhere.
If you are not too enthusiastic about getting a gold Apple Watch, you can always opt for the entry level Apple Watch Sport which starts at $349, or the midrange Apple Watch, which starts at a price of $399.
