AF Aluminum Frame
The aluminum frame is created from aircraft aluminum to build a strong/stiff yet light body, it is polished or glass bead blasted, and then anodized to produce a rock hard ceramic coating for the toughest of uses. Vertically grooves were machined with a ballnose endmill as an ode to its engineering origins. Large sapphire crystal plates are precision inset into the aluminum body. The buttons and screws are created from stainless steel. Available in 3 versions: Black, Black Satin, and Silver.
GCB Gold Coated Brass
The art of guilloché, which dates back to the 16th century, consists of decorating an object with engraved and intersecting patterns. The Professional 3 GCB recreated the decorative art of guilloché by CNC machining the pattern, point by point across the entire front and back of the phone with a 1/32" endmill. The body was then plated with 24 Karat gold.
In Chinese art, dragons are depicted as long creatures with four legs. This magnificent animal symbolizes benevolent power, prosperity, as well as creative and divine strength. Every body of this exceptional phone has been painstakingly crafted from individual solid blocks and requires over 16,000 coordinates just for the engraving of the dragon across the surface of the phone.
This derives from the earlier Russian Empire coat of arms which was abolished with the Russian Revolution in 1917 and restored in 1993. The current coat of arms is derived directly from its mediaeval original, while the double-headed eagle has a history predating the Byzantine Empire, dating back long before the emergence of any Russian state. The golden ball and scepter in its claws represent the power of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Tsar.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Mobiado's creation, I designed a unique phone what had an asymmetrical exotic wood grip. The frame is CNC machined from aircraft aluminum and then finished with a black anodized coating. Large sapphire crystal plates are hand painted with silver lettering and precision inset into the body. The battery cover mechanism displays three rubies and is accessible with a Mobiado key. Available in 2 versions: Amboyna Burl and Olivewood.
The ML phone was available in all black Stealth version and the grey camo splash anodized Commando version.
In the early 20th century, Guido Panerai created some of the earliest luminous watches for use by the Italian navy, using radium bromide and zinc sulphide. Following this military tradition both the Professional 3 ML Stealth and Commando use a multi-layered Super-Luminova coating to create the first luminous mobile phone.
Designed as a adventure phone, the VG phone incorporated miniature gold brackets on the 4 edges to mimic traditional large suitcase construction from the early 1900s used for grand journeys. This series was available in a variety of colors.
A phone concept inspired by nature and with the idea of capturing the very substance of life. This charmingly romantic piece joins the extended collection of the Professional 3 VG series and features an inlayed sapphire flower surrounded by ruby butterflies.
