Gresso shows the world what a $1000 iPhone 6 case looks and feels like
Luxury smartphone maker Gresso has a new fancy something to offer to those for whom spending $1000 on an iPhone accessory is not a problem. Meet the new Gresso Regal Case for the iPhone 6 (also ready for the upcoming iPhone 6s)! It's made of 18K Gold and Grade 5 Titanium, and other than stunning good looks, it's got a magnetic lock system fashioned by Gresso itself.

The Regal case has a rather unique construction, not just because of the high-end materials involved. Unlike typical bumper cases that come in two separate parts and get assembled like a sandwich, Gresso's upper and lower protective frames are joined by a hinge. With the magnetic system in place, the case closes and opens with just one move. Meanwhile, access to function keys and ports is ensured at all times. And being chiselled out of PVD-coated titanium, following 8 hours of machine work and 3 hours of manual polish, the Regal case is resistant to mechanical stress, such as compression and bending.

Once again, Gresso has successfully avoided being gaudy, opting for what it calls "luxury minimalism" in place of diamonds and jewels. The design complements and enriches the iPhone 6 by enhancing what makes it look good in the first place - and that happens to be just the right amount of minimalism, polish and restraint.

The Gresso Regal Case is available now from Gresso's online store. It is limited to 999 units, with each case having its number etched onto a gold plate - a signature move for the manufacturer.

Its users would be worried about the protective case more than the phone.

How badly does this mess up the phone's reception?

More expensive crap by greedy companies.

Luxury products have almost always been geared towards the wealthy and well to do. Gresso is well aware the average person is not going to buy a $1000 case, and they're not marketing themselves to you or I. There are 12 million millionaires in the world, and since selling products with a high profit margin is always going to make you more money than going for sheer volume, it's unsurprising they would aim where the money is. Keeping things in context, for the kind of customers they want this is not expensive at all. Maybe for you as an average person, but then again it isn't meant for you or I. How exactly are they greedy for choosing to go after a certain segment of the populace, where the money is? Unless you are of the mindset that any and all companies that sell upmarket products are greedy. I could see if we were talking about a company dealing in the essentials of life like food, medicine, water, shelter, Internet access, and so on and so forth. But this is a company that has always been from the outset geared towards luxury tech. There are literally tens of thousands of phone cases available for the iPhone 6 that the average person can buy from Amazon or Ebay that are far less expensive. Plastic, wood, metal, and so on and so forth. There are already plenty of options for those that aren't as well to do, so it's not like we are suffering from lack of choice. Honestly, I think people just find ways to hate things they can't afford.

Why the hell pay that for a case. Heck save your money and if you drop your phone it brakes just use the $1000 and go buy a new phone. I don't care that I can't afford one wouldn't pay it if I could. My trident is a awesome case for $35 on ebay, but anyone that can is stupid if they buy one. Jmo
