Unboxing the Apple Watch Edition

The guys over at iFixit have got their hands on an Apple Watch Edition and put a nice video together talking through some interesting points with a traditional watch expert.

Some interesting points I picked up on

  • Delivery was by 'special' courier, didn't look too special to me
  • Box has a built in charger
  • Gold is gold and will mark, not too durable
  • Not likely to be favourable with collectors
  • Non watch makers designed the watch, not easily serviceable and unprofessional (use of glues etc.)
  • Impressed with overall machining
  • No longevity in the product
