The name, Celsius X VI II Papillon, seems as mechanically complicated as the phone itself, but I guess that's only appropriate. Touted as the world's first mechanical cellphone, it is inspired by the inner workings of luxury watches.

Made up of a whooping 547 pieces, th Celsius X VI II Papillon phone is definitely as impressive as it is unique. Giving Apple a run for their money, the £180,000 concept phone will be unveiled at the Basel Watch Fair.
