Gresso's quite well-known for its uber-expensive, yet extremely luxurious mobile phone models, and now, the company's back with a device that can actually be considered “affordable”, compared to some of their previous offerings, namely the Luxor World Time.
According to Gresso, the company took some cues from the Swiss watchmaking industry in designing the aforementioned handset, the unique feature of the Luxor World Time being the six built-in independent Swiss clockwork mechanisms, all of which have a 10-year power reserve.
The watch on the back panel of the phone
shows the time of the five main world business centres, namely Tokyo, Moscow, Paris, London and New York, while the future owner of the phone will be able to set the sixth time by himself.
The screen and clock-face feature elegant Roman figures, the ones located on the back panel being fringed with two 97-carat sapphire crystals with high-gloss coating.
The Luxor World Time case is produced
from ultrastrong and superlight titanium alloy specially developed for GRESSO and is coated with high-tech ceramics at the closing stage – such coating does not tarnish and discolor with the lapse of time.
One more adoption from the watchmaking industry is a bezel made of planished steel with black PVD coating on the front panel, while the back panel is adorned with a decoration made from genuine Italian leather.
The innovative phone keyboard deserves special attention as every key is made of sapphire single crystal.
Last, but certainly not least, it's very important to point out that this thing costs a whole lot more than any average handset, selling for a whopping 6,000 US dollars.
