    Is someone seriously going to pay $10K for this ugly watch. Your paying $10K for a $350 watch with a computer chip and display. This isn't a handmade watch like a Rolex or Hublot. There is no intricate jeweled mechanism that takes months to assemble.

    Everyone who buys one gets a free tattoo of "Retard" on their forehead.

    Its 10k because that is what people will pay for it, like anything else in life.

    I don't know why people get so mad when things that are honestly frivolous imo are priced so highly. To some people 10k is like others spending $20. A 250k car to some people is the equivalent of a middle class person buying a corolla. Its all about relativity.

    You are a capitalist defending Apple. Let me ask you something. You are for companies and free trade putting Americans to work correct? then answer this, why do you defend a company that does none of the above? They dont manufacture shit here yet you still defend them, ponderous.

    who said that watch is going to sell for $10K?? That sounds ridiculous! How much actual gold is in it?

    It's 24K gold but the amount of gold used to make the watch is minuscule. This isn't a Rolex gold watch which uses a lot of gold including the band.
