This Steampunk Android phone costs $50K

This Android-powered Ulysse Nardin Chairman is Steampunk as hell and priced, well, a bit on the expensive side.

OK, screw that. Yeah, $50,000 is mad overpriced for an Android smartphone – or any phone for that matter.

Seriously, I really don’t see rabid Android fanbois or Steampunk diehards splashing out that kind of cash, even if it is a fully functioning device.

Still, we can all certainly fantasize about what it would be like to own such a phone. 

And hey, a little eye candy every now and then is good for the soul, don’t you know?

So, here is what you can get for that hard-earned 50K:

  • 32GB of memory. 

  • 3.2-inch touchscreen.

  • Biometric fingerprint reader.

  • 8MP camera.
  • Ulysse Nardin mechanical watch rotor – creates kinetic energy, supplying supplemental power to the phone.
  • Professional polishing service (optional, an extra 5K per year).


There you have it, folks. Anyone tempted? C’mon, imagine carrying the phone to your next Steampunk, er, Victorian Futurists Ball!

Ulysse Nardin will be showcasing the Chairman at BaselWorld in Switzerland from March 24-31.
