Where to Get a Gold Plated Apple Watch for $1,000
Craving a gold Apple Watch but don’t have $10,000 to spare? For just $1,000 you can have the look of an Apple Watch Edition without the price, thanks to Vietnamese luxury vendor Karalux. The company is selling gold plated Apple Watches starting at $1,000. That sum will buy you a 38mm stainless steel Apple Watch coated in 18K gold with a black or white sports band. The 42mm model will set you back another $400.
The gold plated model probably won’t fool savvy watch lovers but might impress those who don’t look too closely, especially in a dark club or restaurant. At least if this one gets stolen the thief will be disappointed and you can buy a replacement without breaking the bank.
Long Waits for Apple Watch Buyers
If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of that shiny new Apple Watch you ordered on April 10, be prepared to wait a little longer. A very small percentage of those early orders have been delivered and nearly half won’t arrive until June.
According to Slice Intelligence, just 376,000 units were delivered to US buyers on the first weekend of the Apple Watch launch. That’s a pretty small number out of the 1.7 million preorders. A second batch is expected to go out over the next few weeks with another 547,000 units set for delivery by June 11. That leaves 647,000 buyers still awaiting their ship date while watches ordered now are projected to ship in June.
While we’ve become accustomed to long waits for new Apple products they usually involved standing in line for a few hours before finally going home with your prize. With the Apple Watch you could camp out in front of every Apple store within 50 miles and still go home empty handed. This just might lead to some very disgruntled customers.
