A riel Adams and his $13,000 Apple Watch Edition review unit:
Wearing the Apple Watch Edition, I traveled to a few watch making facilities in Switzerland – just to see what would happen. I half expected people to boo at me and throw decomposing produce. None of that happened. In fact, I got a lot of compliments and positive attention. What surprised me so much is that even watchmakers seemed to appreciate the Apple Watch even more when it was in gold. I heard statements such as “Very impressive; nice choice; they make a beautiful gold watch; the design is really top notch; great job on construction; Apple isn't screwing around; I love it; this feels better than many traditional watches; because it is gold, we can accept it.” Yes, I did hear that latter comment, and it really amused me.
It just looks so good in the article's accompanying photos when paired with the leather bands— especially the bright red and midnight blue.
