This Is What Gold Apple Watch Edition Retail Box Looks Like [Photos]
The first few photos of the Apple Watch Edition have started popping up on the Internet after Apple began accepting pre-orders and try-on appointments for its first ever wearable device. As expected, the 18-karat gold-laden Apple Watch Edition is packed in a jewelry box-like premium packaging.
One of the pictures, as first noted by MacRumors, comes in from Instagram userIris Decreus which not only gives us a closer look at the gold version of the Watch, but its box as well which seems to be covered in suede. While the box size and shape is similar to the one found for the Apple Watch Sport and the stainless steel-built Apple Watch models, this one has more premium look and feel to it as can be seen in the photos.
Fabien W., a Twitter user, has also shared a few photos of the Apple Watch Edition which gives us an even closer look at the box. While the photo above showed a more champaign colored box for the ‘Yellow Gold Case with Rose Gray Modern Buckle’ model, the ones shared by Fabien W. shows us the exact same packaging style, but in dark blue shade for ‘Yellow Gold Case with Midnight Blue Classic Buckle’ model. From these photos It is evident that the box colors are model dependent.
Photos also show box having an embossed Apple logo in the center while the inside seems to be lined up with a softer material to avoid scratches. Also included in the box is a fancy documentation to add the premium touch.
As of writing this, initial stock of the Apple Watch has been completely sold out only a few hours after it went on pre-order at midnight. Apple had already warned that the Apple Watch will be available in limited quantity at launch, while the Apple Watch Edition stock would be limited even further.
