Apple recently hosted an event to unveil new, bigger and brighter iPhones. It also launched the new Apple Pay system which can truly change how we spend money. But in the it was an event about Apple’s foray into the brave new world of computing-driven lifestyle accessories. The first of that new line up of products is — Apple Watch. I was there at the Flint Center and got to play with the watches and get a little hands on time for them.
These are classic Apple products. Well built. Immaculately engineered. Machined to perfection. Marvels of modern material science. Bright, light and wonderful. They are Apple’s interpretation of the watch and while it might not be me — I like the old, manual wound mechanical watches — there is many who believe that this could be end of the traditional quartz watch as we know it.
Here are photos and videos of the watch from the event stores on my Storehouse!

nice event but it didn’t convince me – old Samsung user to move on.
Of course, they are building their own ecosystem, so makes sense for you to stick with what you like.
My only watch story adds nothing except to the philosophy of watch wearing, I guess.
1986, moving from New England to the Navajo Nation in AZ, part of thecountry I’d never experienced – driving along alone, I passed into El Llano Estacado about 80 miles west of Amarillo, TX and realized the terrain was so completely different I had to stop and wander into the prairie a bit, feel where I was.
Overwhelmingly, I felt at home. Walked back to my car and before I drove on I took off my watch and dropped it over the gearshift lever on the floor.
It was still there when I traded the car in two years later and I never resumed wearing a watch. Folks here in the Southwest often joke about telling time with a calendar. Not a bad attitude.
What a wonderful little story. Thanks for sharing Ed.
