LG has paired up with a US jewelry retailer to offer the Urbane Luxe with 23-karat gold.

LG and Reeds Jewelers will offer the limited edition Watch Urbane for $1200 USD. Only 500 will be manufactured and each will include a 23-karat chassis and an armband made of genuine crocodile leather with gold folding clasp.

Color options will be available for the armband including Cobalt Blue, Carmine Red, Pearl White, Hunter Green, and Black Onyx. A few options include a surcharge of $195 USD. Each watch will have an engraved serial number and be sold in an elegant high-gloss piano lacquer gift box. The standard warranty will be two years and only one year for the battery.

From a technical standpoint, the Urbane Luxe is similar to the Watch Urbane, but is of course aimed at a more wealthy consumer base.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
