One thing is for sure, when you have money to spend, there are always things for you to buy. Gresso has just launched their new limited edition phone the Luxor World Time, which, as you’ve surely noticed by now, comes with a world time function.
More exactly, the phone features six independent Swiss clockwork mechanisms embedded on the back. Five of these show the current time in the five main world business centers: New Work, London, Paris, Tokyo and Moscow. The sixth watch can be set to whatever time the owner of the phone wants. The company says that the power reserve is clocked at 10 years.
The screen and the face of the clock are fringed with two 97-carat sapphire crystals with high-gloss coating. The case is produced from ultra-strong and superlight titanium alloy and coated with high-tech ceramics. A bezel made of planished steel with black PVD coating is present on the front panel while a decoration from genuine Italian leather adorns the back panel. What is more, each key on the keypad of this mobile phone is made of sapphire single crystal and polished manually.
If you want to use the phone as something other than a clock then unfortunately the non-time related specs are decidedly average. There’s a 240 x 320 pixel TFT display, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, FM radio, voice recorder, voice commands, WAP, GPRS, EDGE, internal modem, Java support, an organizer and media player supporting MIDI, WMA, WAV, AVI, ASF and WMV formats. Storage is also pretty limited with only 30MB of internal memory expandable via microSD cards of up to 2GB.
Jetsetters also have the option to customize their Gresso Luxor World Time in 100 designs from the Online Boutique section of the Gresso website. The device will be manufactured in 14 days. Without customizations, the Gresso Luxor World Time costs $6,000.
