Apple Watch faces

A lot of speculation has surrounded Apple Watch pricing ever since the company introduced the wearable in September 2014. The only cost detail Apple provided was that prices would begin at $349 and go up from there.

German blogs have put together some interesting speculation over the past week based on John Gruber’s post on Daring Fireball, theorizing the most expensive Apple Watch Edition – 42mm with an 18K Solid Gold link bracelet – could be priced at a hefty $19,999.

There’s also theorization a yet-to-be-announced Yellow/Rose Solid 18K Gold Bracelet could be announced on March 9 along with more details about Apple’s new wearable.

Update: A previous version of this article stated information was obtained from a “source”, who obviously misled us. We apologize for misleading our audience and will strive to do better.
