Priced between $13,000 and $22,000, Apple Watch Edition is available for sale at 53 Apple Stores worldwide. Of these, only two Canadian locations carry them and remarkably, neither are in Vancouver as one might expect.
The Edition collection features eight designs, each crafted from 18-karat gold which has been developed to be twice as hard as standard gold. The watch's display is protected by polished sapphire crystal, and watch bands vary.
According to 9to5mac.com, Apple Watch Edition perks include 24/7 support, private one-hour appointments, and no lines.
The only two Apple Stores in Canada carrying the pricey accessory are the 5,000 square foot Toronto Eaton Centre location, as well as the 9,300 square foot 1321 Rue Ste-Catherine Ouest location in Montreal.
Given luxury spending in Vancouver, both from locals and tourists, some are surprised to learn that Apple Watch Edition is not available for sale there at this time. A selection is on display at the Pacific Centre location, according to sales staff, though not available for purchase in the store.
A total of 21 U.S. Apple Stores carry Apple Watch Edition. These include three New York City locations, three Greater Los Angeles-area stores, two Chicago locations, two Washington D.C. area stores, two San Francisco Bay Area locations, and one each in Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, Newark DE, Las Vegas, Houston, Dallas and Seattle.
