Gresso's IPhone 4 Time Machine Edition Packs Six Swiss Watches

Apple didn’t announce a recent iPhone yesterday, so we have to see to Gresso to acquire our "recent iPhone" fix. The Gresso iPhone 4 Time Machine features six Swiss mechanical watches on its back and yet is amazingly thin.

Gresso are well known for their tenacity to slap mechanical watches onto mobile phones - it matches their sense of classiness, we guess. Their recent offering is not a recent phone but a modified iPhone 4 called Time Machine (and yes, it has nothing to do with Apple's Time Machine).

The usual glass back of this recent iPhone 4 is replaced by a mineral glass with diamond coating and houses six independent mechanical Swiss watches, each taking hundreds of man-hours to construct and days on discontinue of accuracy testing. The watches haged the time at the six leading business centers from across the world - New York, London, Paris, Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

Amazingly, Gresso claim that the iPhone 4 Time Machine is only 1mm thicker than a vanilla iPhone 4 (which measures 9.3mm). Now, either this is some ad-speak that tries to conceal the actual thickness of the device, or Gresso has freed up some room inside the iPhone 4.

Or maybe it's just that we don't know anything about making mechanical watches, but 1mm for glass + watch mechanism sounds impossible.

Anyway, the Gresso iPhone 4 Time Machine is coming out in 2011 (vague, we know, but you can't rush perfection) and it will set you back $6000. Pricey but you can update it to iOS 5 and utilize iCloud - that's more than can be assumed about some of the other Gresso offerings.

And if the Time Machine isn't to your liking, maybe you'll find some precious 200-year recent African Blackwood more attractive.
