Yup. We all come to that point in our lives where we have more money than we know what to do with. We can’t decide if we want a fine German luxury sedan to drive up to the country club or if we want to take out an exclusive cell phone that costs just as much money and only does half as much. If you find yourself in the latter camp, you’ll want the Ulysse Nardin Chairman.
All kidding aside, this is the world’s most expensive Google Android smartphone and, get this, it’s actually fully operational. You have to appreciate some of the Steampunk-esque elements like the mechanical watch rotor, because you can actually wind up your phone to give it a little more juice on the go. Or you can get your live-in maid to do that for you.
So, what does $50,000 buy you? There’s 32GB of memory, a 3.2-inch touchscreen, biometric fingerprint reader, 8MP camera, and the knowledge that you have the most expensive Android phone in the world… until someone decides to deface it with Swarovski crystals. For an extra five grand a year, you can sign up for a special Ulysse Nardin program to have the Chairman polished twice a year. They’ll upgrade you to Ice Cream when that’s available too.
Not satisfied with Gresso and Vertu? Turn to Ulysse Nardin at BaselWorld this week to check out the Chairman before getting your virtual assistant to buy one for you from Russia, US, and certain parts of Europe.[Extravaganzi]
