We’re now a week away from the first day of Apple Watch pre-order sales, and Apple has updated its online store to officially announce that orders will begin after 12:01 AM PT/3:01 AM ET on April 10th. The pre-order period will last two weeks (although stock likely won’t) while the Apple Watch will be available for preview at Apple Stores and select retailers. These retailers include Galeries Lafayette in Paris, Selfridges in London, and Isetan in Tokyo.

At launch on April 24th, the Apple Watch will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan.

The aluminum Apple Watch Sport collection starts at $349 and the stainless steel Apple Watch collection begins at $549 while the 18k gold Apple Watch Edition ranges from $10,000 to $17,000.

The new 12-inch MacBook with Retina display (available in silver, gold, and space gray) will be available to purchase on the same day that Apple Watch pre-orders begin.

Earlier today, 9to5Mac reported new details including prices of AppleCare+ for each Apple Watch collection with warranty pricing ranging from $59 to $999. Catch up on our Apple Watch FAQ here.
