The $10k plus gold Apple Watch Edition is an apparent hit with celebrities. Weeks before the Apple Watch goes on sale several performers showed off an gold Apple Watch on Social Media.

The Apple Watch pre-order launched today and the Apple smartwatch sold out in the first hours. Current estimated delivery for new pre-orders is June. While the common folk have to wait until April 24th to get their Apple Watch at the earliest, several celebrities already got an Apple Watch. Not just any Apple Watch. They all have the gold model. 

First was Pharrell. He owns a gold Apple Watch with a white sportsband. Now Drake showed off a gold Apple Watch with red band at Coachella. Katy Perry shares Drakes taste and also shows off a gold Apple Watch with a red leather band.

Now I already see the assistants of other big name performers scramble to get Apple to sell their bosses an Apple Watch Edition.

A model actually beat all performers in owning an Apple Watch. Chrissy Turlington has been working out with one since weeks for Apple.

About the Apple Watch:
Apple Watch introduces a new design and iOS-based user interface created specifically for a smaller device. Apple Watch features the Digital Crown, a new way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and a quick way to access Siri. The Retina display on Apple Watch features Force Touch, a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to access controls within Apple Watch apps.

The Apple Watch introduces the Taptic Engine and a built-in speaker that together discreetly enable an entirely new vocabulary of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel. Apple custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturize an entire computer architecture onto a single chip. Apple Watch also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your iPhone. Besides the smart watch features the Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard when synching regularly with the iPhone.

The Apple Watch starts at $349 for the small case (38mm) Sport Edition. The Apple Watch Pre-order started on April 10 at 12:01am PDT in 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US) and the Apple Watch ships on April 24.
