The LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a limited edition of the LG Watch Urbane designed for people who have a thing for bling. This watch, crafted together in collaboration with Reeds Jewelers, is most notable for its 23-karat gold case.

It's true that 23-karat isn't quite 24-karat, but the advantage of this is that it represents the ideal balance between weight and ruggedness, as it's harder than 24-karat but heavier than 18-karat, and manages to give the smartwatch an eyecatching, glitzy appearance.

The watch's strap is made from genuine alligator leather, with a team of 30 leatherworkers going through a 50-step creation process to craft the strap. The watch also comes with a handy deployment clasp.

Only 500 units of the LG Watch Urbane Luxe will be manufactured, and this is truly an item for the collector.
