Visualized: Inside the Vertu workshop, where phones are made by hand

04 Dec


While not everyone’s comfortable with splashing out on a fancy Vertu phone, there’s no stopping us from appreciating the company’s craftsmanship and engineering expertise since its Nokia days. We’re talking about dealing with various luxurious materials — pearl, ruby, sapphire, titanium, gold, alutex, alligator skin and more — while making sure that each device is mechanically built to last. As such, it’s perhaps a slight surprise that Vertu phones are actually “handmade in England.” Courtesy of our buddy and CEO Max Pogliani, we got to see the process up close and personal at his 60-strong workshop in Church Crookham. (And in case your butler isn’t around to read this article to you, we’ve also got a video tour after the break.)  by engadget
