Known for their watchmaking, the Ulysse Nardin has the mechanical intricacy you would expect along with a 2.8-inch multitouch screen, 5-megapixel camera, biometric fingerprint unlocking, WiFi and an email browser.

A first for the mobile phone industry, the Chairman features a functioning mechanical watch rotor that is also incorporated into its aesthetic design.

Similar to an automatic watch that receives power from the force of a rotor, the Chairman does the same: charging a built-in battery using the kinetic energy of the moving rotor to supply supplemental power to the Chairman.

The Ulysse Nardin Chairman smart phone comes in rose gold, rose gold and blue, rose gold and steel, stealth black and steel and blue.

The phone is currently on display at the Baselworld watch and jewelery expo. There is still no word on pricing, but only a limited number of Chairman smartphones will be produced each year.
