Like the function, but not the form of your Apple Watch Edition? This $10,000 accessory will shield your shame

Like the function, but not the form of your Apple Watch Edition? This $10,000 accessory will shield your shame
The Apple Watch Edition garners awe in all the various forms. Some awed at the level of style, materials involved, and the price tag. Other awed (or perhaps gaped) simply at the price tag.

The Apple Watch Edition’s hallmark is the 18-karat gold body, either in yellow or rose hue, along with other premium materials. The price of entry for the Apple Watch Edition starts at $10,000 and rapidly ascends from there, topping out at a mere $17,000.

Indeed, the Apple Watch Edition is an expression of excess. Even then, there are custom jewelers that will add to the extravagance with no shame. Apple Watch Edition is even good enough for Fido if you have the means.

For some though, they may not want to show off their Apple Watch excess, or maybe they are ultra-old-school and still want a traditional looking time piece on their wrist. Enter the Nico Gerard Skyview PINNACLE.

The Skyview Pinnacle is an automatic chronometer from Switzerland that provides a traditional timepiece on one side of your wrist, while supporting either a 38mm or 42mm Apple Watch. As with any luxury item, the options are plenty. The Skyview PINNACLE can be ordered in a standard black stainless steel, or blue variant, for roughly $9,500. You’ll be happy to know that includes a stainless steel Apple Watch and about a 10-month wait time for delivery.

If you want to go for the gold, that timepiece’s pricing starts at $112,000, and includes a gold Apple Watch Edition. The good news about that is the wait time for delivery is only six to eight weeks. The more precious models are being made first, hence the shorter delivery time, but the timepieces are the real deal, undergoing a full certification process.

The privilege to reserve your spot to order one of only 99 Skyview Pinnacles to be made will cost $200.

Seems stupid enough to buy an Apple watch in the first place. This does not count.

Why wear only one watch when you can have two on a single arm. What?

Someone who earns millions earn it for a reason and good for a real watch instead of these s**ts a true watch won't lose its worth by aging. Well that's the reason why i think smartwatches are not watches at all and the fact that you need to charge it every day is a pain.

An Apple follower is an apple follower, you can CEO having IPhones and IMac, why not an Apple Watch? Australian Politicians and high profile business leaders have been caught wearing Apple Watches. $10,000 is a toy to them something they can upgrade yearly with their pocket change. And i have a smart watch and charging them is no more of a pain than charging my phone.

that is just stupid... if i saw some guy wearing this i would give him a dollar and say " i feel sorry for your parents that you have to wear 2 watches to tell the time".

Nice try, but that was dumbest thing I've ever heard. Why would you give anyone who could afford this money? Try to be more clever next time.

This just shows how ugly the Apple watch really is. Not only does it exist to hide your Apple watch, seeing the two back to back you can see that one side looks like a million times nicer than the other side.

Only that iwatch already tells time. This is to hide how ugkt it looks lol. So why even buy the ugly thing in the first place

The Apple watch would be used for notification? surely as an android user your imagination can imagine how this would actually work? coming from such a "open world and os" i'm surprised you imagination is so.....dead. The Apple Watch looks identical (it is a carbon copy) to the LG G watch and other first gen smart watching including its squareness.. you and others somehow ignore square android watchs which had received nothing but praises fro its design but Apple is attacked for this being called "ugly"? Its sad and pathetic that people so jealous and ignorant must attack apple just because its apple, the Apple watch is second only to the Gear s.
