Apple Watch Edition will have a hard time convincing typical users that its better than a 10k Rolex/Omega/Cartier etc

i think,
the super rich, who have 20 Rolex, 15 AP, they will be ok to add one gold watch to their collection.

for the 1st time owner, he should be aiming a Rolex for sure and not apple.

10k for a piece for wear technology that cannot be upgraded and will outdated very fast, its alot of marketing. of course, There will beb buyers still.

Note: I am not a apple basher btw. speakings from facts
