Limited Edition 23 Karat Gold LG Watch Urbane Luxe Announced

LG_LUX1__1440989888_41401LG has announced today LG Watch Urbane Luxe, which is a luxury smrtwatch and made in collaboration with U.S. retail jewelry company REEDS Jewelers. LG Watch Urbane Luxe is made of  23-karat gold and adorns alligator leather strap set. It will come packed in an exclusive piano-gloss lacquer case. This elegant looking watch will be available starting at the end of October for approximately USD 1,200.

Each of the 500 limited edition LG Watch Urbane Luxe will be engraved with its own serial number for authenticity and will be available initially in the USA for pre-order at www.REEDS.com later this month or by visiting any REEDS Jewelers location.

This luxury watch will be displayed at IFA 2015 at LG stand in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from September 4-9.

LGLUX3__1440989947_91704According to LG, The LG Watch Urbane Luxe will sport a deployment clasp for a fitted, elegant look that isn’t bulky. Invented by Louis Cartier in 1910, the use of a deployment clasp makes this timepiece even more exclusive and unique. The alligator band itself is handcrafted at the highest level of craftsmanship, undergoing 50 separate steps in its creation, handled lovingly by 30 experienced leatherworkers. The 23-karat gold used in the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is stronger and harder than the 24-karat gold used in jewelry and heavier than the 18-karat gold used in traditional luxury watches.

“Wearable devices shouldn’t be thought of as an extension of one’s smartphone but an extension of oneself,” said Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company. “This blending of craftsmanship and technology is a natural evolution of the smartwatch, which is becoming more of a lifestyle accessory than a piece of hardware. We think this is a good direction for wearables and we want to encourage this transformation.”
