After released the two cell phone Signature Series, the Signature Stainless Steel and Pure Black Signature, luxury phones manufacturer Vertu has recently added a new handset to its Signature lineup, the Signature Precious. The main difference from previous models is the kind of material, and this model is the most expensive.
The handset is manufactured only from the finest and ultra-expensive materials, and if you wish it can be manufactured from either red, yellow or white gold. The buttons on the front panel is made using a sapphire, and because it is very hard, then it should be installed using a tool with a diamond end. The patented keypad repose 4.75 carats of solid ruby is designed so that they do not touch the sapphire. Even, the part to put the SIM card is made with gold, and platinum materials.
Also, you can choose the exact materials they think it suits them best, from the color of the leather, which can be black or brown, to the kind of precious stones that the phone should be encrusted, including diamonds, rubies or sapphires. That is why a price for the Signature Precious handset will be hard to determine, as each model should be evaluated according to the materials used at manufacture.
Each Vertu Signature Precious mobile phone is built manually by a single craftsman, who engraves his name below the battery. The handset’s ringtones are composed by Academy Award winning composer Dario Marianelli and performed by London Symphonic Orchestra and one of the world’s most famous flutist, Andrea Griminelli.
The cheapest Vertu available costs $5,100 and the most expensive has sold for $350,000. [Vertu]
