“If you are willing to spend $10,000 to $17,000 for an Apple Watch Edition smartwatch then you can expect to be treated as an executive,” Matthew Miller reports for ZDNet.
Executive-level perks included as part of your $10,000+ purchase include:
• No waiting in line
• Apple Watch Edition try-on area with 30 minutes allowed just to try out the watch
• Ability to try up to two Apple Watch Edition models at a time
• Special station and area setup similar to a jewelry store
• Two year, 24/7, support with video conferencing option
• Dedicated contact center phone number reserved for Apple Watch Edition owners

MacDailyNews Take: As well they should for purchasing the world’s first luxwearable. Exclusive treatment for Apple Watch Edition customers is to be expected. Something would be wrong if Apple wasn’t offering it.
As we explained last week: The $17,000 Apple Watch Edition vastly separates Apple Watch from the stupidwatches. Editions are mobile billboards and perpetual interest-generators for Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport that also elevate the perception of quality for both of those models.

Deservedly so. 😎💥😃
They forgot to add the armed guard escort back to the car.
In the US, perhaps. In places like Japan, no armed guards would be necessary.
Are you saying there is no crime in Japan?
No. He’s saying you do not need an armed escort to and from the Ginza. Which you don’t. He’s saying dropped wallets get handed in. He’s saying children go home from school, unaccompanied and unmolested, late in the evening. He’s saying women can walk dark streets alone without fear of assault.
When they let you out you might want to go there.
Very little personal property theft. Of course there is crime… but overall, it’s a safer country. Safe enough that you don’t need an armed guard to walk around with expensive things on. You should travel there sometime, it’s really quite refreshing.
Happy ending with every purchase.
I was determined not to go there!
So then you also resisted adding “…many styles to choose from.”
As Apple users have been saying for years, you get what you pay for.
And this is surprising to who exactly? The tech nerds obsessed with CPU and RAM?
I’m getting one for each wrist.
30 minutes? 30 minutes??
No – I want SERIOUS sucking up and 30 minutes is not even close.
Fuck, I expect 30 minutes per shirt in Tommy Bahama. You need to get with it Apple. For $17,000 I expect unlimited obsequiousness. Unlimited.
Wow, no wonder your shirts cost $10,000.
And here I thought it was the material. 😉
