For the Apple Watch Edition Series 2, Apple jettison the 18 karat gold models that fetched anywhere from $10,000 to $17,000 and reimagined the high-end Apple Watch in brilliant white ceramic, engineered to be more than four times as hard as stainless steel -- with a pearly, lustrous finish that won't scratch or tarnish. The process of creating the Apple Watch Edition case begins with a high-strength zirconia powder that's combined with alumina to achieve its rich, white color. Each case is then compression molded, sintered, and polished using a diamond slurry, which results in a remarkably smooth surface and an exquisite shine. With this precise level of workmanship, Apple says that every Apple Watch Edition case takes days to make. The ceramic casing aside, the Apple Watch Edition Series 2 features all of the same features of the new Apple Watch Series 2.
