After Gold-Plated iPhones, Diamond-Encrusted Apple Watch Worth $75,000 Is Here
Apple already charges premium price for its products as it carries the reputation of providing premium products for people who like to enjoy luxury. The prices of Apple products are unarguably quite high, as we have seen from Chinese companies unveiling similar products with almost half of Apple’s prices. But some people have got the idea to add another layer of luxury over Apple products. For example, gold-plated iPhones.
Now we are about to see diamond-encrusted as well as 24-karat gold Apple Watch. The company behind this product — Brikk — is the same company that released a 24-karat gold-plated iPhone 6. Brikk has made this Apple Watch available for pre-order, and is offering it in three different models: Standard, Deluxe, and Omni.
The primary difference in the three models is of the weight of diamonds encrusted in the Watch. The Standard model carries 0.5 – 0.6 karats of diamonds, the Deluxe has 2.00 – 2.30 karats, and Omni, the most expensive one, has 11.30 – 12.30 karats diamond.
The Omni model features multiple rows of diamonds around the face, buttons and strap clasp, and is available in 24-karat yellow gold, 18-karat pink gold and 950 platinum.
As obvious from the weight of diamonds put on the Watch, Omni will be the most expensive one costing you $74,995, while the Standard model will be available for just under $8,000. Note Standard model is made of the same metals as Omni and the only difference is the amount or weight of diamonds. The mid-level “Deluxe” version can be yours for around $13,000.
If your are interested in purchasing the Omni Lux Watch, you need to deposit non-refundable $10,000 for a pre-order. The Standard requires a $2,000 deposit and the Deluxe demand $3,000 up-front.
All three models of Brikk’s Lux Watch are available in two sizes, 38mm and 42mm. These models come complete with an aluminum Zero Halliburton case and a one-year warranty. The company will start shipping them after three to four weeks of official launch of Apple Watch, which is expected to be in April.
Apple is claiming that entry-level Apple Watch will start at $349. However, many people are disputing the claims. What do you think what would be the price tag on Apple Watch? Let us know in comments.
