Alrighty, let me get a show of hands. How many of you have been paying attention to Apple's latest gadget releases? If you haven't heard, I covered the Apple announcement live on my site. Click here to see what Apple's latest tech announcements are.

The basic design is called the Apple Watch, the sporty version is obviously the Apple Watch Sport, and the luxury style is the Apple Watch Edition. It's the Edition watch that's making headlines, and for several reasons.

While the base and Sport model of the Apple Watch are selling for $399-$549, the Edition model will blow you out of the water with a price tag of $10,000-$17,000! The Edition watch is made with 18-karat gold, but it turns out that Apple's gold isn't like other gold. It somehow managed an 18-karat rating while using less gold in its alloy than normal 18-karat gold.
