Inspired by the mythic Lamborghini Murcielago, TAG Heuer, the world leader in luxury sports watches and chronographs has teamed up with the famous Italian super sports car manufacturer to create the limited-edition MERIDIIST Automobili Lamborghini phone.
In tribute to the year Automobili Lamborghini was founded, 1963 pieces of this finely-tuned device will be sold worldwide. Housed in black titanium carbide coated 316L stainless steel, the design of the MERIDIIST Automobili Lamborghini phone references the super sports car down to its famed signature on the battery cover – the same as on the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640’s V12 engine block. The back of the device is engraved with its limited edition number while the keyboard is customized with Automobili Lamborghini’s trademark Taurus bull on the steel central button.
Features of the MERIDIIST phone include a concealed 2 megapixel camera and 2GB memory. Furthermore, each handset can be personalized by opting for the rubber, calfskin leather or genuine alligator decorative back cover. The MERIDIIST also features a dual-function TAG Heuer switch. By touching this switch a polite call rejection process is issued; it also illuminates the unique time display mounted at the top of the Meridiist, and switches the direction from which the time can be viewed or launches a 1/100th of a second chronograph.
The MERIDIIST Automobili Lamborghini phone is luxuriously crafted and detailed, marrying the most prestigious materials and advanced components in the watchmaking and automotive worlds. The display is made from 60.5 carats of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Its battery life is unrivalled and offers a seven hours talk time or 28 days standby power. This is comforting news should you feel risky enough to put your $6,000 phone in your pocket next to a set of house keys.
