Apple Watch Series 3 Space Black Stainless Steel Case with Space Black Milanese Loop is not available in Singapore.
In fact, all three high-end models of the Apple Watch: Apple Watch Edition, Apple Watch Stainless Steel Case, and Apple Watch Hermes, are not available in Singapore because they come only in GPS + Cellular.
Bought the Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop strap for S$218 from Apple Online Store (Singapore) because the 42mm Milanese Loop is sold out at all authorised Apple Resellers.
Placed my order last Thursday, 2nd July 2015 and I received it this Tuesday, 7th July 2015, despite it saying it ships within 5-7 business days.
The 42mm Sport Band is retailing for £39 (S$83) in the UK before tax refund. In Singapore, it is retailing for S$78.
Buying The Apple Watch
I was supposed to go to the media launch of the Apple Watch at nubox (Raffles City) if they can reserve a set for me. Because if I went for the event, I would not be able to queue if the queue is short. Unfortunately, they didn’t get back to me till I was in the queue, so I ended up forgoing the media event and joined the queue because it was rather short (I was 36th in line at 8.15am; launch is at 9am). I was intending to buy it online anyway if the queue is long.
The queue was deceiving, it takes about 90 minutes after the official launch timing (9am) to clear 36 people in the queue (I went in about 10.30am). The queue was moving way too slow because they only allowed 2 people into the store at a time (maybe because of Apple’s policy?).
