Apple Watch I Have More Money Than Sense Edition?
Check the Las Vegas Pawn Shops in about 4 months. They'll have 'em. ;)
One can find (real) Rolex Presidents in jewelry stores in just about any Mall. Smaller malls may hardly ever sell one but showing one can drive sales of lower-priced alternatives. Once one contemplates $17K (even in wildest fantasies), prices at $1200 or $1000 can seem like bargains.
It's a very common jewelry-industry tactic to display the President to shock an interested buyer (with the price tag reveal) and then show them another Rolex that probably costs 50 times more than the one they have on their wrist and it will seem much more affordable. In college, I sold a ton of Rolex watches via that very scenario.
However, it doesn't work the other way. If they look at a Rolex look-a-like from Seiko or similar at a few hundred dollars, it almost never leads to the sale of a Rolex President.
Even with the security risk, I'm surprised Apple didn't go with one in just about every store. Stock 1 or 2 for those who would actually buy one on the spot and be ready to rush more in as they sell. At $17K, they could even do "white glove" delivery and in-home setup if they ran out of stock of that model.
