- Caviar heavily customizes iPhones with gold and diamonds.
- It makes a $100,000 iPhone 11 Pro.
- YouTuber MKBHD got his hands on one.
Russian outfit Caviar already has a reputation for making some outlandish iPhones and now we've been given a rare chance to see one in a video. Caviar provided YouTuber Marques "MKBHD" Brownlee with one of its Solarius Zenith Full Gold models, and oh my.
The phone is a standard iPhone 11 Pro that has had its rear glass panel removed and replaced with a ton of gold and 127 diamonds. Oh, and a working tourbillon. That's a fancy clock for the uninitiated.
You can check the full ten-minute video for the rundown of what you're getting for your $100,000. And if you want to go iPhone 11 Pro Max or get more than the standard 64GB of storage, that's an option as well. You'll just need to find the extra $20,000 or so to do it.
Very few people will buy one of these, but the fact that they exist is still amazing. If you're into watches there's no denying how beautiful the back of this iPhone is. Even if it's excess turned up to 11.
