The original Apple Watch was available in the 'Apple Watch Edition' which made of solid gold and cost a pretty steep $10,000 - but during the Apple event, the company didn't mention the new Watch Series 2 being made in an Apple Watch Edition. Instead, the company revealed a new ceramic-based Apple Watch Edition, but it will not be coming in gold.

Apple's new "reimagined" ceramic Apple Watch Edition starts at $1249, which is around double the cost of the Watch Series 2 which comes in stainless steel, and triple the cost of the cheapest aluminum-based Watch Series 2.
