Apple is expected to announce more details about the Apple Watch, which it unveiled during its September iPhone keynote.

Gold Apple Watch Edition Estimated to Cost Around $5,000 to $8,000

Apple fans hoping to nab the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition for under $5,000 may want to start looking at the other collections. Twitter user Greg Koenig [via Forbes] estimated that the high-end Apple Watch Edition contains around 29.16g of gold in its casing. That's around $1,200 worth of gold at current prices. Once you factor in additional manufacturing and Apple’s markup, Koneig says that the watch will retail for no less than $5,000. Ian Morris of Forbes thinks Apple will want to go a little higher at $8,000.

The Wall Street Journal said on Monday that the "Apple Watch Edition is expected to be among the most expensive product the company has ever sold, likely surpassing the $4,000 Mac Pro computer". In the same report, the WSJ claimed Apple had ordered five to six million units of the Apple Watch from its suppliers, with the high-end model making up the least amount of the order. Apple is expected to increase production of the Apple Watch Edition to one million units per month after the initial launch in April.

Apple Suppliers Building More Than 5 Million Watches for Launch

The Wall Street Journal had a lot to say about the Apple Watch this week beginning with a report about Apple's plans to make a "state-of-the-art health-monitoring device" that would track everything from blood pressure to stress levels. Unnamed sources said that Apple had to scrap a lot of the planned health features for the watch after some of them failed to work reliably. Instead of being able to release the watch as an all-in-one medical device Apple had to go back t the drawing board and find a new identity for its first wearable device. So far Apple has touted the watch as a fitness tracker, a new way to communicate and even as a fashion statement.

The WSJ also filed a report on Tuesday claiming that Apple has asked its suppliers to make a "combined five to six million units of its three Apple Watch models during the first quarter" before the official launch in April. The $349 entry-level Sports model will make up half of the watches assembled, while the basic Apple Watch model will account for one-third of the watches shipped, according to sources familiar with the matter. The initial run of the high-end 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition will be small before increasing in the second quarter.
