Chinese replicas
How many of you know that there are replicas of Apple Watches already available in China that offer the same functionality and some improved features (like changeable straps)? They are Anroid based and easily available for under $200. Would you rethink your purchase of Apple watch? Or, is Apple's brand strong enough to prevent it from all competitions?

Re: Isolating millions of loyal but not so rich fans
Well, I guess Apple's approach answers our earlier debate of how they will compete with Rolex, etc.

Isolating millions of loyal but not so rich fans
My. My. Apple executive from Burberry is making apple watch purchase experience a Burbery like experience. But wont that isolate millions of loyal Apple fans who cant dish out 1000+ dollars and end up getting a less than desired experience. Afterall Apple is all about experience.

Re: $10 apparently doesn't buy very much these days
Given the IQ for people willing to drop 10K for that piece of junk I imagine the VIP room will also have a high demand for coloring books and crayons and Apple employees should probably blunt any and all sharp objects, like crayons and doorknobs.

For dropping $10k, I would certainly hope that early adopters would receive the white glove treatment and then some. Like housekeeping services for a month or six.
