GoldVish Revolution luxury phone gets a mechanical watch
Swiss company GoldVish, maker of the ultra-expensive Le Million phone, introduced its latest luxury handset called the GoldVish Revolution at Baselworld 2009. The design for the dazzling, candybar-styled phone looks to be somewhat inspired by the very stylish Motorola Aura. The most fascinating part is that it combines a luxury cellphone and mechanical watch in one unit. The mechanical watch has been assembled by the award winning Swiss watchmaker Frederic Jouvenot. Jouvenot’s classic chronograph movement features column wheels, an automatic rewinding system and an inimitable patented face. From the head to toe, the Revolution is covered in 29-carats of VVS-1 graded diamonds and 18 carat pink and white gold. Only nine examples of the GoldVish Revolution will be made, with each costing €369,000 ($488,150). Looks like we are going to see more luxury phones with integrated mechanical watch movements.
