Christophe & Co. Armills bracelet with a touch of wearable technology
Pininfarina, the independent Italian car design firm has come up with a high tech bracelet in association with Christophe & Co. Dubbed as Armills, this limited edition men’s jewelry is a unique combination of wearable technology, luxury gems and advanced engineering to form a perfect mix of contemporary style and modern day technology.
The design is influenced by ancient symbol of royalty and courage which reflects universal symbol of victory. The bracelet is embedded with over 1500 hand-picked micropave diamonds and is made from solid 18k gold frame under a complex ceramic shield. Rest of the body of this bracelet is made from carbon fiber material (used in Formula 1 components) which gives it strength and light weight credentials.
Armills bracelet comes with a kinetic energy generation system which allows the user to run it for almost a year before requiring a recharge. Moreover the optional hardware module is fully upgradable and has communication technologies for secure transactions, one touch valet and other functions.
425 Christophe & Co. Armills bracelet will come in three models – Virtus, Orion and Apollo for $75,000, $93,000, and $149,000 respectively. That might sound a lot for a wearable gadget, but coming from high end brand like Christophe & Co., you wouldn’t expect it to be any less expensive.
