Imagine a cellphone crafted with the same horological insidiousness of churning gears, analogue dials and mechanical parts as a Swiss watch.

That’s the idea behind the Celsius X-VI-II’s mechanical cellphone. The phone is made with 547 mechanical parts, and it features a tourbillon in its hinge.

The unique combination uses a patented Remontage Papillon mechanism that mimics butterfly movement, and is activated when the wings are unfolded.

The phone will operate solely through human energy and is touted as an entirely mechanical cellphone.

This luxurious watch-phone will be priced at approx. €200,000 and will make its debut at the upcoming Basel World watch fair in Switzerland.
