Apple Stores are about to have something in common with Tiffany & Co. 9to5Mac reports that Apple is bringing in some specially designed safes to its retail outlets that will be responsible for housing 18-karat gold Apple Watch models, marking the first time Apple has ever deemed one of its products valuable enough to require a safe.
“The safes will likely be used to carry both to-be-sold inventory as well as to store demo units from the show floor overnight,” writes 9to5Mac. “The custom-designed safes will be outfitted with Apple Watch MagSafe chargers in order to keep the demo units charged up and ready to go for the next day of business. Apple has already begun installing the safes in some stores ahead of the Apple Watch’s expected release April.”
While most Apple Watches won’t be made from solid gold, Apple is trying to position some versions of the device as legitimate competitors with luxury Swiss watches. We have no idea how much the gold version of the Watch will cost yet, although some reports have claimed it will be priced in the range of thousands of dollars.
We won’t have to wait much longer to learn about all Apple Watches’ pricing, however, since the device is slated to launch in the next couple of months.
