Vertu Boucheron Worlds Hottest New Phone

vertu-boucheronThis is probably the world’s hottest new phone and Vertu’s most beautiful ever made! It is the creation of Vertu for Parisian jewellry house Boucheron, with the occasion of the 150th Anniversary.

“The essence of the single edition Vertu Boucheron 150 was to create something unique with signals of both brands,” said Frank Nuovo,  Vertu Principal Designer. “Using the Vertu Signature platform, but taking it away from the core design and creating a visibly stunning statement that breaks all expectations of mobile phone design, resulting in a true piece of sculpture.

The constantly changing angled surfaces allow a cut stone appearance, inspired by the clearly faceted stones which are a significant part of Boucheron’s core craft. The recognisable Vertu V shape has seemingly morphed into random proportioned patterns and directions of the three sided surfaces creating a perfect blend of Vertu and Boucheron elements. The challenge was to gain visual sparkle not from precious stones but instead through pure form and line achieved with precious faceted metal.”

This amazing cell phone made of solid gold was named Vertu Boucheron 150 and, according to the designer, it took 1000 hours to cut its unique shape, 700 hours for the hand polish and more than 500 hours to hand build. It sports an extremely durable sapphire crystal keypad, featuring high-speed 3G connectivity, and comes in a cool wooden case made from Noce Pedullo walnut tree by the Swiss house Reuge.
As you open its case you hear the signature Vertu ringtone.
We don’t know how high price of this edition raises, but it probably goes over $30,000. Some talk about one million British Pounds…
