Ulysse Nardin has launched a limited edition run of its Chairman smartphone, a diamond-set device in 18ct white gold that features more than 3,100 round brilliant diamonds.
The new model is the most expensive phone ever produced by Scientific Cellular Innovations (SCI), the company that creates the phones for Ulysse Nardin. Only 100 units will be made.
The Chairman features Ulysse Nardin’s design elements including the brand’s distinctive mechanical watch rotor and each smartphone is numbered with a limited edition plaque found below the rotor.
Last month, Ulysse Nardin gifted the phone to Chai Schynder, wife of the brand’s late founder Rolf Schynder, with her own custom designed model with red accents, inspired by the Chinese Year of the Dragon.
