The leading cryptocurrency web portal Bitcoin.com has partnered with the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer, Franck Muller, in order to create elegant crypto themed timepieces. The titanium, limited edition functional bitcoin cash watch is called “Free the Money, Free the World” and will be sold for crypto on Bitcoin.com.
In the summer of 2019, the luxury watchmaker Franck Muller released a fully functional bitcoin watch called the “Encrypto,” a timepiece that allows the user to store their digital assets in cold storage.
The titanium, limited edition bitcoin cash (BCH) wristwatch will sell for 9,900 EUR per unit and there will only be 500 individually numbered timepieces sold.
The product’s titanium exterior is extremely durable for individuals with an active lifestyle. The stylish black DLC coating with green accents gives the watch a fashionable metropolitan look. The wristwatch is the first-ever Bitcoin Cash Franck Muller dial. The watch QR code can be customized with the buyer’s bitcoin cash (BCH) public key.
Franck Muller is well known for making the finest and most complicated timepieces in the world and the gorgeous watches are worn by a myriad of celebrities. The firm says “‘Free The Money, Free The World’ is an exciting chapter in Franck Muller’s story of modern and innovative watches.”
Cofounder of Bitcoin.com, Mate Tokay, helped design the new Franck Muller wristwatch and believes that exquisitely complicated watches combined with innovative technology like Bitcoin Cash (BCH) go hand in hand.
“It has been an amazing experience to work with the Franck Muller team to design the world’s first Bitcoin Cash watch,” said Bitcoin.com’s Mate Tokay. “As a watch enthusiast, this challenge meant a lot to me. I truly believe that we have created a one of a kind watch, and I am flattered to say that the feedback has been great so far.”
Every watch comes with a two-piece “Deep Cold Storage” set that allows the owner to store the crypto within the public address etched on the dial. A sealed USB that contains the private key keeps the wallet secure, while the address balance can be checked by leveraging the dial. Just like all Franck Muller timepieces, the “Free the Money, Free the World” limited edition set is characterized by elegant arrangements and elaborate watch machinery.
“This has been an exciting project and it is beyond an honor to work with Bitcoin.com, Mate Tokay, and Roger Ver on this. Let’s free the world together,” Tyler Gallagher of Regal Assets said during the announcement.
Every 41mm piece comes with a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a black leather strap with green stitching. A myriad of Franck Muller watches has been worn by a number of celebrities including Kanye West, Elton John, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Lil Wayne, Floyd Mayweather, David Beckham, and more.
The crypto-infused timepiece, “Free the Money, Free the World” is already making huge success in Hollywood, with various celebrities, and well-known hip-hop artists. This includes the likes of celebrities such as rapper Young Thug, Youtube star and gamer Faze Banks, American singer-songwriter Kaash Paige, rapper and songwriter Cardi B, American singer and rapper Swae Lee, American model and social media star Jordyn Woods, and the hip-hop star Gunna.
