Ungodly mashup merges iPhone with Apple Watch

A customer brought an idea to his iPhone provider in Russia: What if you could make the iPhone and Apple Watch into one device?

The client now has his iPhone-watch mashup and you can, too, for $21,130.

It does not have the symbiosis of the chocolate and peanut butter of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, but the Swiss Dreams Watchphone by luxury brand Caviar will definitely elicit the double-takes.

No amount of gold or precious gems is too much for Caviar, which has a popular line of gold-plated iPhones featuring the face of President Vladimir Putin.

But just when you think you’ve seen every possible pimp-out by Caviar, the company integrates an iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4.

The background of the iPhone’s backplate has an image of Earth with continents made from solid gold with artificial onyx oceans. The watch band integrated to the phone has two layers of electroplated gold.

The frame of the watch is gold-plated and is solidly affixed to the phone by a method not disclosed by the company.

There’a whole Swiss Dreams collection that pays homage to classic watches, but the Apple Watch is the only model with an actual watch face as part of the design.

Presumably, the bearer will not be able to receive notifications of a potential heart attack.
