Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold: a mechanical watch mobile phone

Canada’s Mobiado has just announced another luxury mobile phone, called Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold and presented as “the expression of mechanical perfection, mastering of aesthetic details, and the integrity of consistent craftsmanship.”

Keeping the Mobiado tradition, the 105GMT Gold is made from large pieces of sapphire crystal, Ebony wood and a CNC machined frame that’s finished with a 24-Carat gold coating. The phone’s keypad is built from sapphire crystal as well, and hand painted with the same kind of gold mentioned above. 

But the most interesting aspect about the new device is that it’s a combination between a phone and a mechanical watch. It features a Discovery watch mechanism, incorporated into the lower side of the case. The Swiss watches have 25 jeweled bearings and are gold-painted. They are also protected by Mobiado’s 3D shock absorbing system.

The phone-only features of 105GMT Gold include:

  • Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz)
  • Dual band WCDMA connectivity (850 / 2100 MHz)
