With all the hype that’s been going around concerning Apple and its trendy smartwatches, some individuals are looking to turn a profit from the situation. For example, a vintage Apple watch from the 1990s surfaced on eBay alongside a price tag of $2,500, which is quite expensive considering the fact that you could buy seven new upcoming Apple watches with that money. Supposedly, the price tag is justified by the piece’s rarity and by the fact that it could be considered a collector’s item.
These vintage Apple watches were given away as part of a promotional campaign for the first version of the Mac OS. They were made using cheap materials such as plastic, and they feature simple quartz movements. While the watch costs $2,500 on its own, shipping prices and potential import fees could add up to a much heftier expenses. However, if you are purchasing it in the US or the UK, you really don’t have to worry about these things too much. Apple fans and collectors will definitely be interested in buying this original piece.
