The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are expensive but what if you want something even more expensive to set yourself apart from the crowd? Caviar has the right thing for you. The company offers a Grand Complication iPhone XS which literally puts a watch complication at the back of the device.
Made of expensive and exquisite materials like engraved blackened titanium, decorative gears covered in gold, customized gold plated Caviar plate, and an anodized covering, the Grand Complication Skeleton Black and Gold iPhone XS is a thing of beauty. The phone even comes in an expensive leather packaging to justify its price from the get-go. It even comes with a customized SIM ejector pin along with a handwritten warranty card and a proof of purchase.
Since this is a limited edition device, Caviar even mentions the serial number on one of the sides to increase the flaunting value of the device. The mechanical complication at the back of the Caviar iPhone XS is exactly that — a mechanical complication. And it is no regular complication. Here’s how Caviar explains its working:
Based on ETA Unitas 6498-1 modified mechanics with a manual winding, 17 stones, makes 18 000 vibrations per hour, the power reserve is 30 hours. The mechanism is esthetically improved by Caviar masters: the platinum is decorated with manual engine-turning with the pattern “baroque curls”; the mechanism elements are covered with the double gold covering Double Electroplating (999-gold content, 7 microns). The skeletonized format allows viewing the work of the entire mechanism.
To charge the complication, you have to manually wind it down which will be enough to make it last for 30 hours.
With a starting price tag of almost $7,000, the Caviar iPhone XS is definitely not cheap. And if you want the bigger iPhone XS Max, that is also available with a starting price tag of $7,380. There’s currently a 5 percent discount available across the lineup as well.
