The usual glass back of this new iPhone 4 is replaced by a mineral glass with diamond coating and houses six independent mechanical Swiss watches, each taking hundreds of man-hours to construct and days on end of accuracy testing. The watches keep the time at the six leading business centers from across the world – New York, London, Paris, Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
What’s more, the six Swiss-made clocks add only 1mm to the back of a standard iPhone 4, and are protected by mineral glass with diamond coating against scratches.
A $6,000 price tag makes the iPhone 4 Time Machine enclosure affordable only to a uber-rich with some disposable bailout cash, but if you want to be noticed in a sea of iPhone 4s, that’s the price to pay. [Gresso]
