Watchmaker Ulysse Nardin and SCI Innovations have teamed up to create the world's first hybrid luxury smartphone called The Chairman. The phone is made from the finest metals and is hand assembled. The rear of the phone has an Ulysse Nardin winding rotor and a screw mounted pusher.

The winding rotor is integrated into the design of the phone and the winding action provides supplementary power to the phone. The rotor charges the built-in battery using kinetic energy. The smartphone is unlocked for use on most GSM networks worldwide.

Features of the device include a 2.8-inch touchscreen and oversized numeric buttons. The device has fingerprint recognition allowing only the device owner to use it. An extensive warranty provides repairs for internal and external components whenever needed and a high-resolution digital camera is built-in. The handset is being built in limited quantities only and pricing is unknown, but sure to be in the "if you have to ask" category.
