The maker of extraordinary iPhones Caviar is back at it again, this time with a commemorative 'Apple 1' edition of the iPhone 12 that has a cool starting price of $9,990.

From the phone's listing:

The phone contains an exclusive fragment of an Apple 1 circuit board, as well as a wooden back panel and an 'Apple' label in the style of the old computers.

There's a similar 'light' version that you can pre-order for a much more reasonable $4,990. It still contains an exclusive Apple 1 fragment, but it's much smaller.

Given the exclusive nature of the headline device, you won't be surprised to learn that only 9 of them are available worldwide. There are 49 'Apple Light' versions available. Caviar delivers its phones free to your city, and the transaction is accompanied by a personal consultant.

With the iPhone 12 yet to be announced, Caviar is of course simply banking on the release of the phone and likely plans to customize these models once the device is released.
