Apple’s luxurious Watch edition has been discontinued following the debut of new Apple Watch Series 4. The Watch Edition that ‘devolved’ from gold in its first to ‘ridiculously overpriced’ ceramic finish in Watch Series 2 and Series 3 couldn’t attract much attention from users.

Apple at its keynote 2018 event showcases Watch Series 4 with standard aluminium and stainless steel hardware, however, the company didn’t mention about any premium Edition model. Apple Watch debuted in 2015 and back then Apple brought a ‘high-luxury’ variant with a case made of 18-karat gold or rose gold. The first-gen Apple Watch edition came with a sapphire crystal for the display protection and a solid gold case for a price starting at $10,000. Apple dropped solid gold model after the first gen and switched to ceramic build on Series 2 and Series 3. The luxurious Watch Edition has been removed and Apple now offers the Watch Series 3 and Watch Series 4 with aluminium casing.
