If you were ever crazily curious about the mechanisms of a mechanical clock and you were in dire need of a mobile phone, the form of the 'Remontage Papillon' will rock your world.

Created by French company CELSIUS X VII, the Remontage Papillon is a tourbillion mobile phone that reveals the mechanical movement of watches. Taking inspiration from high-end Swiss watches, this uber-luxurious watch-phone combo is not only awesome looking, but it also harnesses human energy.

Implications - The Remontage Papillon is composed of 547 mechanical parts. Part of the cell watch mimics the movements of fluttering butterfly wings. This cell watch is out of the price range for most -- it starts at $275,000. This luxury will certainly attract the attention of your friends.
