If you bought the new iPhone 6S recently and felt it was missing something, Russia might have the answer. Russian luxury gadget designer Caviar has released a limited-edition iPhone with a gold-plated emblem of Vladimir Putin's head right there on the back.
The Russian president celebrates his birthday on Wednesday, and to honor the occasion, Caviar has released the new phone. But if you want one, buy it now, because Caviar is only releasing 63 phones for Putin's 63rd birthday.
The phone includes a picture of Putin's head surrounded by his full name, the emblem of Russia and a line from the national anthem.
If a bas-relief of Putin's head on your phone is right up your alley, you can also purchase an Apple Watch with his signature engraved on the side. Caviar also sells several non-Putin items, including a Yuri Gagarin-themed Apple Watch to commemorate the cosmonaut.
The Putin phone, or "Caviar Ti Gold Supremo Putin Anniversario Edizione 63," comes in a varnished wooden case, and with either 64 or 128GB of storage. The smaller version will set you back 199,000 rubles (roughly $3,200), while the larger version costs 209,000 rubles, or $3,341.
