Were you just about to leave your penthouse apartment and hop in an Uber XL to Apple's Fifth Avenue flagship to purchase the $17,000 Apple Watch Edition? Stop everything! You can't. It's booked.

At the glass cube, there's apparently a special VIP room for people planning to purchase the Edition, the most expensive version of the Apple Watch. What's even more surprising, however, is that so many people were planning to buy it (and/or really just want to hang out in a special secret room) that it's booked for the entire day:

The cheapest iteration, the Sport model, is also sold out online, so even if you were only planning to drop a mere $349 on an Apple Watch, you're out of luck, too.
