    Having a gold watch is meaningful only if you can still use it 10, 20, 50 years from now. In 5 years the Gold Apple Watch would be worth nothing except for the gold.
    LOL you are a real jewel.  Do you think a person owning a $500,000 Vacheron Constantin or Patek Philippe is wearing everyday and out to the tennis court.  Your plane is attempting an altitude your social position can't achieve.

    No shock here, the Gold watch was a joke, a way for those with stupid cash to burn to say I have one and you don't. Now I don't mind the ceramic white, the price is fine as well, but really you get the shit sport band for $1299 for the 42MM, what are they smoking. I will simply get the Black Stainless Steel model, white would have been cool, but not for an extra $500.
    I think they'll have absolutely no problem selling out the ceramic models.

    you don't understand the very wealthy. the point of gold watches is a status symbol. not family heirlooms or any other sensible shit.

    The Gold Apple Watch served it's purpose as a topic starter and by only selling it one year, they have cemented it as an eventual collectors piece.
    Nothing powered by a short-lifespan Li-ion battery is anything I would regard as a collectors piece.
    the nealry-million dollar price of the Apple I disagrees with you.
    The Apple I had a Li-ion battery? 
    predictable. no, the analogy is that it's obsolete tech that doesn't even function any longer. try to use that space between the ears.

    like Cook said at launch two years ago, Edition was a limited edition. nothing real controversial about that, tho im sure there will be those will try to spin it as further proof of doom or something.
    Everything's a limited edition. Not making it this time around means it didn't sell enough. The whole AW as jewelry experiment didn't pan out exactly as they had hoped. 
    everything's a "limited edition"? man it's really getting hard for you to come up w/ new material, isnt it?
     
    as for sales -- prove it. oh wait you cant, because its just your hater opinion presented as fact.... in real life apple's now the #2 watchmaker in the world. oops.
    You can't prove it either. I never said they didn't sell boatloads of the other versions. Just not enough of the gold version to make it again. 
    I can't prove what? I've made no claim. you have, thus the burden of proof is on you. you're not very good at this.

    Happen to have any numbers to back up that statement?
    Who needs numbers when there's cause and effect? We don't know Apple's internal numbers, but we know their reaction to those numbers. 
    So in other words...no you don't have numbers to back up your FUD! Next!
    What FUD? You obviously have no idea what that means. 
    he used FUD in the correct context. Fear Uncertainty Doubt. it's all that you have. your compulsion to spread FUD around is like a hog rutting in the mud. you just can't bear to see Apple do well...haters like you have a mental disorder. it's sad really. maybe a cure, one day?

    Could you tell me what size the Li-ion battery in the Apple one is, its capacity and where you can currently buy a replacement?

    You got 6 likes?  Makes me  wonder if cool-aid consumption and dementia are correlated.
    no it just means there are at least 6 people smarter than you. I'm guessing there are more tho.

    Check out prices for the HP-01 watch or the Compuchron calculator watch. I have no doubt the Edition will be a collector's item in the future.

    Your claim is a veiled one. You're claiming that Apple isn't make the gold version of the AW because Cook said it was a limited edition, but that's an appeal to probability fallacy. It is more probable that it simply didn't sell well enough to continue making them than simply because TC said it was a limited edition.

    So including yourself, that's 7 people who think the original Apple one computer you cited is powered by a Li-ion battery, and you think your little coterie are smart.  Just to bring you up to speed with reality, there were no consumer devices powered by Li-ion batteries when the Apple one was made.  There, that should make it a bit easier for you to answer the question I put to you, if you can join up the dots.
