Apple is building Apple Watch shops in luxury department stores that attract customers who may be interested in purchasing the high-end gold Edition models of its smartwatch, reports The Verge.

One example is here in Tokyo, where Apple is constructing a Watch shop inside Shinjuku’s Isetan, one of the biggest and most famous department stores in Japan. It’s the first thing you see when you enter the store — an ominous black box right by the entrance, marked only with the Apple Watch logo and a subtitle saying “Coming soon” in Japanese. Though you can’t see inside the closed doors just yet, the floor space is sizeable, and Apple is right next to fine jewelry brand Cartier.

The Isetan store is set to open on April 10th. Similar pop-up shops will also open in Selfridges in London and Galeries Lafayette in Paris. Apple is planning to sell the Apple Watch through boutiques including Paris’ Colette, Los Angeles’ Maxfield, Berlin’s The Corner, and Dover Street Market in London and Tokyo.

As with regular Apple retail stores, customers will be able to try on the Apple Watch and pre-order starting April 10th but it will go on sale starting April 24th.

To find out when pre-orders go live, please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Not going to be worth the rent ! Who would buy a watch that will be outdated in 2 years by any maker, who would spend 10,000 on an apple instead of a Rolex. !

Not to mention ho much they can last. iPhone 6 is going to be a while and the 5s the 5 is somewhat dated.

A Rolex user will buy the gold edition. Its a statement that one needs to make. Period. A lot of people in the world have a lot of money and with 10K you can make a statement they will. A first class ticket for 2 is what it costs Thats not much for them If LV can sell a crap ladies bag for 5KUS$ why not a watch. You can't carry a bag ever where but the watch you can wear at all times. I am woried al lot of robberies will happen because of this Hope apple implements iCloud password some sort so that one cannot use a ribbed watch.
