According to Wall Street Journal, Apple has “studied platinum watch casings,” which could be the material of choice for the luxury edition of the next-generation Watch. For the current Watch, the most expensive variant will boast 18-Karat gold plating. While Apple hasn t revealed any details about the pricing, reports claim that it could go up to the $20,000 mark.

Considering that luxury watch makers like Rolex and Omega use platinum for their high-end watches, it seems like a logical step up for Apple as well. But the publication mentions that Apple has only been studying the materials, and this is by no means a confirmation about a platinum Watch variant.
In the meantime, Apple will be unveiling the first-generation Watch tonight, which boasts as many as 34 variants. Prices start at $349, and per rumors, is likely to go up to $20,000 for the Watch Edition. Apple s Spring Forward event kicks off at 10:30PM IST tonight and here s how you can watch it live.
