iPhone 13 Holy Trinity: When the luxury watch is not enough

Caviar has released an iPhone collection modeled after classic watches. The cheapest iPhone 13 in the series costs over $6000.

When a watch enthusiast hears the term "Holy Trinity," it stands for three brands: Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe. These three Swiss watchmakers are legendary, they say, for not only having highly exclusive designs, but setting standards in watchmaking and the style of timepieces.

Caviar Studio, something of a tuning garage for smartphones, looked at the Holy Trinity watches for inspiration. The Holy Trinity Collection is promoted by the iPhone modder as a "companion" for the watches.

Cheaper than the watch

The backplate of the iPhone is replaced with gold and, because it was just so beautiful, decorated with diamonds.

All three Holy Trinity Phones represent a part of the dial and some links of the bracelet. The designs of the watchmakers are adopted.

Material, names and work as well as a little bit of technology cost.

Thus, the iPhones in their cheapest version with 128 gigabytes of internal memory are relatively inexpensive. The watches themselves are much more expensive.

The price of the iPhone inspired by the Vacheron Constantin Overseas is particularly eye-catching. This is due to the indexes and backplate made of 18 carat gold. The background of the part inspired by the dial is made of blue titanium. Only seven of them are made for this purpose. The Audemars Piguet and the Patek Philippe iPhone will be sold 99 times.

Pictures do not do the iPhone justice

Caviar shows pictures on its website. Logical. These look like ultrakitsch and have so nothing in common with the subtleties of the eponymous watches.

Caviar is not the only company dealing with this problem. The pictures of the luxury watches also do not do justice to the real physical object. The play of light and the haptics are missing. On the other hand, a picture like this does a good job of bringing the luxury watches down to earth a bit.

Be that as it may, it all looks better in the video.
