Vertu, the world’s leading high-end, luxury mobile phone manufacturer, has launched the latest edition to the Signature Collection, Signature Pure Chocolate.
From the deep brown sapphire crystal keys, featuring red gold graphics, to the stainless steel case covered in a polished hard coat of PVD, every facet of this elegant handset is a luxurious, warm, chocolate brown shade.
The entire handset is wrapped in soft, brown leather and is accessorised with a matching leather case.
Beautiful yet functional, the craftsmanship and finish of Signature Pure Chocolate is apparent in a host of details; the SIM drawer is engraved with a unique Vertu pattern and the superbly engineered battery cover release is operated by a D-ring.
The ruby bearings slide on pure sapphire crystal surfaces, aligned so that no part of the metal key touches the sapphire face of the phone. The result is no friction, no wear, and the world’s most satisfying click – a Signature trademark.
Vertu Signature Pure Chocolate also boasts a highly curated suite of services, tailor made and personalised to your individual requirements and accessed via the applications integrated into the handset.
With global experts based in city hubs around the world, Vertu Concierge provides dedicated and independent lifestyle assistance, 24 hours a day, worldwide, in eight widely spoken languages. It can be accessed via a dedicated key on the handset, which when pressed displays options for Vertu Concierge or Vertu Customer Support.
Each Vertu Signature is handmade in England by a single craftsman at Vertu’s state-of-the-art headquarters in Hampshire. On completion of a rigorous testing and detailing process, the signature of the craftsman who assembled it is engraved on the inside of the phone, before it is shipped to one of Vertu’s luxury retailers around the world.
Despite the advent of smartphones, Vertu’s voice-centric Signature range continues to be a popular collection, currently accounting for just under one fifth of Vertu sales.
Priced at $16,600 USD, the new Signature Pure Chocolate can be found in Vertu stores and luxury retailers.
