The latest gadget from Apple Inc. is hard to come by right now, but it seems the Apple Watch is plentiful at Squaremouth.

A St. Petersburg travel insurance policy comparison company, Squaremouth bought an Apple Watch for each of its 24 employees. This from a company that already offers unlimited paid vacation and a birthday beer bonus with a mandatory day off.

Squaremouth ordered Apple Watch Sports, which retail between $350 and $400 each. The watches were pre-ordered ahead of Apple's April 24 launch for the watches, and started to arrive at Squaremouth offices in Florida and Indiana at the end of April.

It's not the first time Squaremouth has used Apple products to surprise employees. The company also bought iPads for everyone in 2011 and 2013. All told, that's more than $10,000 in technology giveaways for employees.

“There has been a buzz in the office since the watches began arriving,” Squaremouth employee Brandi Morse says in a release. “The whole experience has served as one giant boost in morale.”

Squaremouth was founded in 2006, and had around $14 million in revenues in 2014.
