Preorders of the Apple Watch started Friday, and we have already written a guide on how to preorder the Apple Watch. Now that this process has started, shipping dates of the watch are now way beyond April 24 for some buyers, extending through Summer. It looks like the company was right in estimating that the initial demand of this watch will surpass the supply. Also many potential buyers of the Apple Watch are visiting Apple Stores to try out the watch in different sizes and configurations.

However, only a select few stores have the higher-end Apple Watch Edition. The Edition’s case is crafted from 18-karat gold, and the display is protected by polished sapphire crystal. As you might have guessed, the price range starts at $10,000.

Vblogger TechSmartt got the chance to try out the Gold Apple Watch Edition. He visited the Apple Store in Chicago and must have set an appointment from Apple’s website prior to his visit. He got a one-to-one appointment with an expert at the store and had a pretty good conversation and also tried out the gold watch. It is natural for the watch to receive VIP attention, especially when you are thinking of purchasing a watch which starts out at $10,000. Indeed, he even tried out a watch which costs a whopping $17,000 and many other different Apple Watch Edition models.

It’s not only about the watch, but the retail box for this gold Apple Watch Edition also doubles as a charging stand, which is a nice trick up its sleeve. The exquisite watch definitely looks great, but in the end, many users will argue whether it is wise to spend such a large amount just for a smartwatch. So now without any further talk, go ahead and lay your eyes on the beautiful Apple Watch Edition in the video below.
