Alright, I gotta admit this ain’t nothing new – as my favourite rapper would say – because this watch was actually launched a couple of years ago. But I only found out about it so I’m writing about it now. Sorry.
It’s the Franck Muller Vanguard Encrypto, the company itself calls it the “world’s first functional Bitcoin watch”. On the dial, at the 12 o’clock, you’ll find a laser-etched QR code that can be paired to your public wallet address and it also comes with a USB stick that you can use to store your private keys. Production is, or rather was, limited to 500 pieces. And apparently you can only buy it with crypto.
As for the watch itself, if you’re into watches like I am, you’ll be pleased to know that under the bitcoin-focused dial you’ll find the sapphire crystal and the DLC-coated case with titanium finish, you’ll find a a Franck Muller’s Calibre 0800 manual-winding movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
Back when it was new, the Vanguard Encrypto was available in a few different colourways and it cost $12,000. I tried to see if I could find any available model in the pre-owned market but I couldn’t. And I’m not surprised. You should never sell your BTC. So why would you sell a bitcoin watch?
