De Billas makes the Samsung Gear S3 classic precious with 24K gold plating
We have to admit we’re not huge fans of gold plated phones, but a gold plated smartwatch does make a lot more sense - luxury mechanical watches often flaunt gold or other precious metals. If you feel the same, you can snag a Samsung Gear S3 plated with 24K gold.
It will set you back $600 (double the price of a regular S3 classic). De Billas boasts about applying two layers of gold “with a high thickness.” Also, nickel is not used for the plating process (you can develop a nickel allergy after a prolonged exposure).
De Billas says that the Gear S3 is still good to go for a swim, the gilding process did not impact its water resistance. Note that the watch comes with the original band, but its buckle has been plated as well. The charger also got a 24K gold surface.
You can order a custom box and a personalized message if the gilded Gear S3 classic smartwatch is for a gift.
