Swiss watchmaker launches a cold storage Bitcoin luxury watch

posted 5 months ago
Swiss luxury watchmaker Franck Muller launched a limited-edition timepiece “Encrypto” it’s calling “the world’s first functional Bitcoin watch.” Visually, the dial of the watch sports Bitcoin’s logo and a QR code of Bitcoin’s genesis block address. The face also includes a laser-etched QR code for a public wallet address that can be used to deposit Bitcoin and check its balance. An included sealed USB stick stores the private key.

The “deep cold storage” wallet uses “offline generated, non-deterministic TRNGs (True Random Numbers Generated) that cannot be hacked,” according to the announcement. Priced from $10,000-$60,000 apiece, some models include precious metals and diamonds in the dial and frame.
