$48,000 phone. Just saying that along with the pictures ought to be enough, but I will elaborate. This is the Revolution phone, which really doesn’t imbue a lot of the things I associated with being ‘revolutionary,’ though the price + concept might cause your head to ‘revolve’ Exorcist style. The company that made the phone is called Goldvish. Which is basically just “goldfish” is you are American. Unlike other uber luxury mobile phones with built-in watches (Mobiado), the Goldvish Revolution inserts a very nice (and removable) Frederic Jouvenot Chronograph Evolution watch as part of the device. Frederic Jouvenot is a relatively new brand that I discussed here. This is the first time I have seen a quality independent watch company place their watch in such a device. Either this connection raises the credibility of Frederic Jouvenot watch, or reduces it.
The watch is directly taken out of the Frederic Jouvenot Chronograph Evolution watch known by its front facing automatic movement. The concept is pretty cool, and if you clicked on the link above you can get to know the watch more. I would imagine that all the craftsmanship of the watch adds maybe $10,000 to the price of the Revolution phone. The section with the watch is removable from the phone itself. The watch is the coolest part of the Goldvish device, and once removed, takes this luxury device from Bollywood glam to Mumbai slums glam (somehow that analogy just seems to make sense in my mind).
The Goldvish Revolution phone itself is nothing special aside from having a ridiculous amount of diamonds and gold on it. If your eyes can stand the sparkle, the phone is a decently shaped device probably worth $100 or so. Then you have all the precious gems and gold which just add commodity weight without much engineering prowess. For about $48,000 you get an unlocked GSM phone that will make a hell of a desk clock in a few years. The Revolution phone model FJ-ACE-001 will be available as a limited edition of just 9.
