Shine on you crazy diamond phone. Last year Tag Heuer previewed their Meridiist luxury phone line, designed to compete with other high end cell phones like the Vertu. Yesterday Tag Heuer announced the launch of a website for the Meridiist and we’ve got a sweet photo of the diamond encrusted version of the phone to go with this story. These phones typically sell for about $4-6000 but these diamond versions start at over $11,000.
The phone itself is a sleek model made of stainless steel with a OLED screen behind scratchproof sapphire crystal glass and your choice of several different leather styles and colors on the back (alligator, calf, etc). It has 28 days of standby and 7 hours of talk time. The phone has a camera with a mechanical sliding lens cover (a feature all phones should have since those lenses get scratched and dirty so easily) and a neat clock feature on the top. You can order one via the Tag Heuer website I listed above. I’m saving up for one!
