    If you could pick out any Apple Watch and have it instantly purchased for you, what would you pick?

    Some people might go for the Edition, but I'd be happy with a 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Link Bracelet. Simple and classy.

    If I had so much money that $20k was pocket change, I'd still get the 42mm Stainless Steel with the Milanese Loop and put the rest of the money towards another Rolex or Breitling, or perhaps the Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX7 Transponder I've been wanting.

    If money was no issue, I'd buy all 3.
    I'd pimp out the Editions & Stainless Steel like so:
    If money wasn't an issue, what Apple Watch would you pick?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1428725634.564841.jpg

    And I'd use the Sport during my workouts and runs.

    Obviously the rose gold edition watch with modern pink buckle😻

    I wanted the SS with the modern pink buckle but I didn't want to wait until June so switched to the silver sports with white band during pre-order as it gave me a quicker delivery date 24/4-8/5.

    The same one I purchased: 42mm Sport with green band. (I love the way this watch looks; it is so me.)

    Now, I would order my wife a 38mm Rose Gold Edition.

    Money isn't an issue for me and I still purchased the space grey sport with the black band 42mm. I am a watch person and have a nice collection of watches that I've spent too dollar on. Each watch edition does the same thing the cost of each is depicted by cases and bands and I couldn't see myself drop more the the 430 on this watch. And the other side of it between working in law enforcement and cross fit I think the sport will be more practical

    To quote from the movie Heathers: "How very!"

    On a serious note, I think my next watch will be the Stainless Steel with the Milanese Loop, too. You, sir, have good taste.

    I decided to splurge and get the stainless with the link bracelet. It is more than I would normally spend, but I've been putting money away for a while for when the Watch was released so I went for it

    My rationale is that it is a band that will go with anything. If I had picked a black leather band, there might be times I'd want to wear brown. I figured buying multiple nice bands would add up pretty quickly. Plus I'm counting on being able to keep the bracelet for whatever future version of the Watch I decide to upgrade to. That better happen. 😉

    If I had unlimited funds, I still would have bought the watch I did, but I would have purchased a Sport model in addition to use when working in the yard, exercising, etc. That way I woukd have a dress watch and a "beater" watch.

    And it would still be way cheaper than a gold model which just isn't my style.

    I would get the Space Black with black links. I wouldn't even get the Edition just not worth the cost.

    Watch Edition rose gold with the Milanese loop

    This thread proves that the Watch Edition is not going to be as low in sales as everyone thinks. There are lots of millionaires and high networth individuals all around the world and obviously the US.

    I didn't have a chance to check back until now. LOVE all the varying responses. When I made the topic I was wondering if everyone would instantly go for the Edition or if there would be a mixture. Nice to see that everyone has differing tastes! Keep em coming!!

    You should have made a poll. It would have been fun to see the split between the models.

    I was just on Apple.com looking for an iPhone dock. They had the rose gold shown - not something I'm into but it looked sharp!

    Regardless of my money situation I would still get the Sport in space gray with the black sport band. I tried on the watch last night and even though the weight of the aluminum and SS are not too different, I don't want to wear a heavier watch to workout, hike, etc. I also only would buy one and I want to be able to use it in any environment without worry. $500 is much easier to me to fathom breaking or abusing slightly than $1,000 or more. Also, as this is a tech item, I'll be getting version 2.0 next year and 3.0 the year after, so spending more doesn't make sense to me. There will not be any increase in value for these items. As for the gold editions, I would never buy a gold watch of this kind, mainly because I would never wear a gold watch to the gym or to hike, etc.
