Caviar puts meteorites on the back of iPhone 13 Pros, gilds a Tesla Model S
Caviar is not known for its patience – however, it is known for creating luxury versions of smartphones covered with as many precious metals and gemstones as they can hold. The latest line-up has a cosmic theme and it comes from the future.
Okay, these are just prototypes, but Caviar plans to customize the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max (which, of course, are months away from advertising). A couple of these have enough meteorites on them to make even Bruce Willis sweat.
They are called “Parade of the Planets” and are covered in black titanium, a material used in the space industry. The golden version also includes decorative elements with double gilding (999 gold, 7 microns thick) and starts at $ 14,290. The Titanium model is a bit more affordable at $ 12,750.
The rear design of these phones lives up to the name with representations of the six planets from Mercury to Saturn along with some satellites like the Moon and Mars’ Phobos and Deimos. Some of these (like the Moon and Mars) are represented in more than just stylized representations.
Both designs have pieces of six meteorites embedded in the back – one from the Moon, one from Mars plus two pieces from the Tsarev meteorite and Chelyabinsk meteorite (it’s the one from all dash cam videos).
Both also have mechanical clocks on the back with a tourbillon movement with 19 stones (CVR ELT3350A). But there is also a stylized hourglass with silver-colored “sand”, because it is not enough to have only one mechanical timing unit.
There are two more designs that are based on black titanium again, but with gold decorations. One is called Starfall (it starts at $ 6,950), the other is called Moon and Sun ($ 7,030). 99 units will be made of each version.

Do you know who loves Mars? That’s right, Elon Musk. Although we are not sure if the leader of Tesla will love “Model Excellence” – a Tesla Model S (Plaid configuration), which has got the front grille and other elements plated with 24k gold.
Caviar will even sell you a matching iPhone – a simple iPhone 12 Pro this time – for a price, of course. But what’s 6,150 more compared to the Tesla price tag of $ 299,000? Note that Caviar shows the car as a concept, so we can not promise that you can actually buy one.
