The prices are understandably high. The Standard will cost $7,495, and the mid-range Deluxe will set you back $11,995, while the top-of-the-range Omni will carry a whopping price tag of $69,995.
Clients will receive a diamond-studded certificate of authenticity as well as a 1-year warranty.
Apple Watch: Fashion and technology combine
So far Apple has been marketing the Apple Watch as a fashion accessory, and Brikk’s luxury editions will certainly be a good way for people to stand out from the crowd.
Apple’s own high-end Apple Watch Edition has been the subject of a lot of speculation, with predictions of its price varying between $10,000 and $20,000. This means that the lower end of Brikk’s range may carry similar price tags to Apple’s higher end models, but it seems likely that the Omni edition will be the most expensive Apple Watch on the market.
