This is how John Gruber has sunk the hopes (and the bank accounts) of the aspirants to get a Apple Watch of gold. We’ve gone from having rumors that the price was around $1,200 and now it turns out that there are bets on $5,000 or even $10,000 .

It has to be said: luxury watches already cost that much and even more . You only have to go to one of the most exclusive shops like Rolex to see how our mortgages would not be enough to get one of their watches. And now we are talking about an accessory made by Apple, made of solid gold, and treated so that it is twice as durable as conventional gold.

349, 999 and 4999 dollars is the price range John Gruber thinks we’ll have with the Apple Watch

Gruber doesn’t stop with the price of the gold edition: according to the editor of Daring Fireball, the $349 model would be the Sport while the normal chrome model would cost $999. Here perhaps I disagree more, because that would restrict the Apple Watch to a much less than optimal audience .

But one thing is clear. Whoever is aiming to take that gold Apple Watch must think it will be more of an investment than a purchase, and they certainly won’t want to change it as soon as a new generation of watches appears. There are still many doubts in the air , but the truth is that these prices are starting to scare.
