Quick Take: New Twist in iWatch Story

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- What does the recent move of an executive at Apple (AAPL - Get Report) mean? TheStreet's Debra Borchardt and Chris Ciaccia provide some insight.

Bob Mansfield was removed from Apple's executive page on its Web site over the weekend. The move comes after CEO Tim Cook recently gave Mansfiled more power at the company, causing some investors to question what's happening.

However, Mansfield actually is being moved to work with "special projects," which by most accounts likely means the rumored iWatch.

Ciaccia said the iWatch will be the most intense project since the iPhone, which Mansfield also worked on. He also helped with the iPod, Mac Book Pro and Mac Book Air.

Although the iWatch's potential for success has been questioned by some, Cook has said that it's up to technology companies to convince consumers that it's something they'll want and need.

Ciaccia said that some analysts are calling for revenue estimates in the $10 billion to $15 billion range and that if the iWatch is successful, it would be a game-changer for not only Apple, but the technology industry as a whole.
