No Apple Watch for Switzerland

The home of luxury watches won’t be seeing the Apple Watch any time soon.

According to a Reuters report Apple won’t be able to launch their upcoming smartwatch due to rights issues — much to the delight of Swiss watchmakers I’m sure.

The U.S. tech giant cannot use the image of an apple nor the word “apple” to launch its watch within Switzerland, the home of luxury watches, because of a patent from 1985, RTS reported, citing a document from the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property.
