This Is a Rare Prototype of the First Apple Watch

If these watch prototypes are real, this is pretty cool. They look so fat and chunky now!

Giulio Zompetti, a 27-year-old from Northern Italy, told Motherboard that he purchased half a dozen early prototypes of Apple Watch recently, and is planning to fix them and sell them for thousands of dollars. Zompetti declined to say where exactly he purchased the devices from, but said they come from e-waste facilities. The prototypes he obtained are all broken, but key components are still intact, making it possible to repair them, he said.

Someday I wish Apple would publish a book of photos of their various prototypes from throughout the years. It would be fascinating to see the differences in initial concepts and final production models.
