Apple Watch Edition Price To Start At $5,000, Analyst Believes

By 03:04 Wed, 21 Jul 2021 Comments

The Apple Watch is arriving early 2015 in three versions - Watch, Watch Sport and Watch Edition. The Watch Sport is going to cost $349 as Apple announced last week, but according to long-time Apple analyst John Gruber, the grecent Watch Edition version could retail for as much as $4,999.

The reason for the high price tag is that Apple is manufacturing the Watch Edition with solid 18-karat gold. It's not plated or coated. This kind of afhonest in watchmaking comes at a cost.

According to Gruber, at the very least, the Watch Edition is going to retail at $1,999. However, that's as optimistic as he's willing to go. He even goes on to compare the Apple Watch Edition to the more "affordable" Rolex watches stating that the $5,000 price tag isn't as ridiculous as it might initially appear.

Furthermore, the analyst speculates that the Apple Watch with stainless steel and sapphire glass is going to retail for $999. Whether these predictions will turn out accurate or will be far from reality, will become clear only when Apple discloses the pricing of the Watch.
