As you can see from the images, Grid has taken the first-generation iPhone and created a stunning piece of art, the perfect gift for any enthusiast or a great conversation starter to be hung on the wall of any office or living room. From Grid:

We are trying to source the iPhone (1st generation) since the first day we start the business, but this one is very rare, we will launch a limited edition of 999 sets, while stocks last.Apple employees who have participated in the project of iPhone (1st generation) can enjoy a special $100 discount. Thank you for making such a revolutionary mobile phone. You can send us an email to prove that you have participated in this project before or after purchasing the product. We will issue the discount after verification.

On the fourteenth anniversary of the original iPhone's launch, you can bag this piece of memorabilia for $400, down from the usual price of $599. (opens in new tab)

Personally, I own Grid's iPhone 4S and can honestly say its one of the coolest items in my entire office. If the first-generation iPhone isn't for you, or you can't get hold of one (there are only 100 available), you could always try one of the other iPhone models including the iPhone 3GS, 5S, 5, 6, the Apple Watch Series 1, or even an iPod touch!
