Diamonds are not only a girl's best friend, they are also the hardest material on the planet. Right behind diamonds is sapphire. This means that a diamond laden $30,150 version of the Apple Watch includes the hardest and the second hardest materials on earth. There are eight rows of high-grade 15 carat diamonds on this luxury version of the Watch, which also comes with the usual sapphire glass display that Apple uses on the device.

Mervis Diamond, the jeweler behind this glitzed up version of the Apple Watch, is using an 18K rose gold frame for the wearable. If the Mervis name sounds familiar to you, back in 2010 the jeweler offered a blinged up version of the OG Apple iPad for $20,000. The jeweler is accepting pre-orders of the Apple Watch now, with deliveries expected to begin this coming June. Of course, that could change depending on when Apple decides to release its smartwatch.

One thing that Apple has done with its timepiece is to play the fashion card. It is a smart move on Apple's part, and differentiates the device from the other smartwatches that have been released over the last 12-18 months. By presenting the Apple Watch as a tech and fashion item, Apple will be drawing buying interest from both the techies and the fashionistas.

This version MIGHT look good on a woman with a VERY expensive outfit.. I'm not saying I have the best fashion sense but I can appreciate a nice watch, and overall the Apple Watch just doesn't have any character in my eyes.

I have a gold Omega (with a sapphire crystal, front and back). It looks elegant. It's self-winding chronographic mechanism is a work of Swiss art. The Apple, OTOH, looks like a gaudy piece of junk suitable only for Kardashians. If you ditched the watch, it might make an okay bracelet. BTW, if the 15 carats is accurate, it refers to total carat weight of all the diamonds. Given the number of diamonds, I would guess you're talking around 0.05 carats per diamond - near worthless diamond chips set in a silvery frame to make them look bigger. All sizzle, no steak.

Definately those celeb will be paid by Apple to wear them.

How long did it take you to figure that out genius? I never said Apple are the only one who do it. I really don't know how you came to that conclusion after reading my comment. Are you always on defensive mode when it comes to Apple? I think you should ask TimCook that BS question.

Err whenever you decide to wake up from your dreamworld TimCook impersonator let us know. Thanks. I doubt the Apple Watch will ever become more popular then regular watches but maybe thats just me. You see all the celebrities wearing it? First off, you dont.. because your not Tim Cook. Second just because a celebrity uses something doesnt mean the people will follow. I also suggest you seek help and stop trying to be Tim Cook...

So what's the best (and nearly unique) way to scratch a sapphire glass? With diamonds of course, but where could you find them?

Is the battery life better? A price hike like this would imply a meaningful technical improvement. No? OK, no thank you.
