NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL) fanatics worldwide can celebrate now that the Apple Watch will be available in seven more countries beginning June 26.
The Watch is currently sold in nine countries and will soon be offered to customers in Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland and Taiwan. The Watch is be available in three collections: Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition. Prices range from $349 to over $10,000.
Apple Senior Vice President of Operations Jeff Williams said in a statement that the company is "making great progress with the backlog of Apple Watch orders." He said with the exception of the Apple Watch 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel with Space Black Link Bracelet, all orders placed in May will ship to customers within two weeks.
Currently, the company's website says the Apple Watch Sport is available to ship in as little at 5 to 7 business days or at most 2 to 3 weeks depending on whether its casing is 38mm or 42mm respectively. Time frames for shipments of the Apple Watch vary from 5 to 7 business days, 1 to 2 weeks and 2 to 3 weeks depending on size and band type. The Apple Watch Edition, which can cost upwards of $17,000, can ship to customers within 2 to 3 weeks or in some cases the website just says "June."
Williams said in the release that the company will begin offering some models of the Watch in its retail stores once the backlog of May orders was completed.
