The Gear S2 Classic is one of the most fashionable smartwatches Samsung has every produced. However, if you’re into something a bit more flashy, the company has teamed up with Swiss luxury jeweller de GRISOGONO to launch a new limited edition Gear S2 smartwatch.
The Samsung Gear S2 by de GRISOGONO apparently “goes far beyond mere co-branding and extends into authentic co-creation and design,” which is to say it’s outfitted in gold and precious jewels.
According to the spec sheet, this new Gear S2 comes in rose gold, and includes a black DLC-coated stainless steel case, as well as some 56 white diamonds (each approximately 1.2 carats) and 71 black diamonds (approximately 1.8 carats) embedded around the bezel and a bracelet studded with de GRISOGONO’s galuchat.
Fawn Gruosi, the founder and creative director of de GRISOGONO, said in a statement, “designing a connected watch with Samsung has been an incredible experience for both brands. Samsung brought to the table the best and most intuitive technology, while de Grisogono brought its glamorous design and craftsmanship expertise. The resulting Samsung Gear S2 by de Grisogono clearly embodies all of our boldness in watch design and our jewellery savoir-faire, while maintaining all of Samsung’s technological capabilities and intuitive usage.”
The Samsung Gear S2 by de GRISOGONO will be shown off at the upcoming Baselworld 2016 and be available to purchase sometime this summer through Samsung and de GRISOGONO’s retail channels. Neither company has yet to announce how much the watch will cost.
