Forget the gold Apple Watch, go for custom titanium and gold iPhones instead

The Gresso Regal custom iPhones are handcrafted wonders

What do you get for someone who could afford a gold Apple Watch? Think custom iPhones, such as Gresso's limited edition phones made with titanium and 18k gold. For real.

Subtle luxury

Rather than go for garish bling or tacky bulk, the Gresso doesn't veer far from the iPhone 6's original design, instead upping it a notch with the finest of materials.

Gresso is only making 999 pieces of its custom iPhone and the individual collection number will be engraved on an 18K yellow or white gold insert on the back panel.

There are even three models to choose from. The G1 is fully titanium, with 64GB internal memory. The G2 is a 128GB model with a black PVD-coated titanium case with an 18K white gold logo while the 128GB G3 also has the same PVD coating but its logo will be in 18K yellow gold instead. Each phone is put together by a single craftsman, and packaged in a leather gift box.

The cost for bragging points? The G2 and G3 are US$5,000 each while the G1 goes for US$3,000.
