Caviar, Russian luxury brand of smartphones and cases have come up with all new limited edition iPhone XS and XS Max models. Taking customization to new heights, the innovative design adorns the back panel of the iPhone with a tourbillion. Taking inspiration from traditions of watch complications, the luxury brand went extra mile to merge a mechanic watch with a smartphone. Tourbillion is an extremely accurate mechanism that offers perfect preciseness of the time reckoning by negating the effect of gravity when the timepiece is stuck in a certain position.
Christened, “Caviar iPhone Tourbillon”, the luxury smartphone is the newest addition in the collection ‘Grand Complications’ series of the brand. The front of the iPhone is kept as it is by Caviar and all the designing and customization has been done on the rear. The back panel is adorned with astronomy-themed patterns which depicts images of planets with their orbits. The design is brought to life by applying black titanium and 24-karat gold.
The clock’s face is located in the center with the hour marks designed in form of Roman numerals. The tourbillion is placed in the “six o’clock” position comfortably visible to the naked eye. The mechanical watch must be wound manually (19 stones, 28 880 vph) and comes with a power reserve of 30 hours. According to Caviar, the mechanisms are developed on special order by a well-known European manufacturer whose name has not been disclosed yet.
The Caviar iPhone Tourbillon will be limited to only 99 models for both iPhone XS and XS Max models. Each limited edition piece will come with its unique number engraved along the edge along with a certificate of authenticity. The price for Caviar iPhone XS starts from $8,350 and XS Max starts at $9,110.
The Caviar Grand Complications Tourbillon smartphones will be showcased at an exhibition in Basel, Switzerland next week.
