Ulysse Nardin Chairman Phone Sells Out in Moscow Prior to June 1 Launch

The world’s most expensive cell phone, the diamond-encrusted Ulysse Nardin Chairman debuted only a few weeks ago at Baselworld in Switzerland, and has now already completely sold out in Moscow.

Haute Living joined Bobby Yampolsky, co-founder of SCI Laboratories (the company behind the phone’s creation), at Abe & Arthur’s in New York City last night and we were given an exclusive preview of the most recent model of the Chairman. The phone features an Android operating system, which is better than both Blackberry and iPhone, and includes the signature Ulysse Nardin mechanical watch rotor that creates kinetic energy to supply supplemental power to the phone. The Chairman is also compatible with GSM and 3G networks around the globe, and boasts 32GB of memory, a 3.2-inch touch screen with thumb print recognition, and an 8 megapixel camera.

The Chairman will officially launch on June 1 with a starting price of $12,500.
