No more five-digit checkouts on the Apple Store — for an Apple Watch, at least.
The gold case, branded as the Apple Watch Edition for Series 1 of the product and costing $10,000 for the 38mm case, has been discontinued. In fact, even the regular Apple Watch stainless steel case is gone from the online store. All that’s left is the aluminium case in both 38mm and 42mm sizes with the Sport bands.
The most expensive Apple Watch listed on the site will be available for pre-order tomorrow: the Apple Watch Edition of Series 2. The white ceramic case will be $1,249 for the 38mm case and $1,299 for the 42mm case.
Here’s a price chart of what you can get right now and will be able to get soon:
|Case||38mm pricing ($)||42mm pricing ($)|
|Series 1 Aluminium (Sport)||$269||$299|
|Series 2 Aluminium (Sport/Nike+)||$369||$399|
|Series 2 Stainless Steel (Watch/Hermēs)||$549||$599|
|Series 2 White Ceramic (Edition)||$1249||$1299|
Certain bands will add to the price — for example, the “Modern Buckle” will be a $200 add-on for the steel case. Some color combinations between cases and bands will be limited to certain sizes — take the “Gold Aluminium Case with Cocoa Sport Band,” a 42mm exclusive.
