We have featured Vertu a few times before and each time the price seems to go up,this time is no different and basically all it says is “I AM RICH” and i can show it off or a fashion statement whichever term suits,for me personally if i was this wealthy i still would not fork out on such a device,having said that it does look nice on the outside.



Signature Touch Pure Jet Red Gold has solid red gold features including the volume control keys, power/lock key and pillow support. With Grade 5 titanium sides, coated in black PVD and a black PVD-coated Grade 5 titanium back plate. It’s wrapped in highly refined ‘fine-mill’ calf leather, sourced from the Alpine region of Europe and crafted by one of the area’s oldest tanneries. As a result, each Vertu is individual and may differ slightly to what you see here.


With the Vertu Range you do get an array of extras though which would be expected for the price you pay for such a device,You get Concierge – 24-hour worldwide assistance, recommendations and priority bookings. Tailored privileges  and Certainty.
