Partnerships in any market are important, however, in the world of cryptocurrencies it is even more interesting. In this case, Bitcoin.com partnered with Swiss luxury watchmaker Franck Muller in order to create stylish cryptocurrency-themed watches. The Bitcoin Cash Limited Edition Titanium Functional Watch is called “Free the Money, Free the World” and will be sold in cryptocurrency on Bitcoin.com.
How did this idea of collaboration come about?
For some time Muller thought of a clock idea with the concept of the world of cryptocurrencies. In 2019, he released a fully functional Bitcoin watch called “Encrypto.” It allowed the user to store their digital assets in cold storage.
However, this year the manufacturer has decided to reinvent itself, and for this it sought the alliance with Bitcoin.com. This beautiful digital watch is called “Free the money, free the world.” It was specifically designed by Bitcoin.com co-founder Mate Tokay and Tyler Gallagher of Regal Assets.
Mate Tokay, co-founder of Bitcoin.com, believes that “exquisitely complicated watches combined with innovative technology like Bitcoin Cash (BCH) go hand in hand.”
How is the design and price of this limited edition watch?
This is known to be a Titanium, Limited Edition Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wristwatch. In case you wonder its price, it is known that this will sell for 9,900 euros per unit. Only 500 individually numbered watches will be sold.
The titanium exterior of the product is extremely durable for people with an active lifestyle. Each 41mm piece comes with a scratch resistant anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a black leather strap with green stitching. The latter certainly gives the watch a modern look. The watch’s QR code can be personalized with the Bitcoin Cash buyer’s (BCH) public key.
Each watch comes with a two-piece “Cold Storage” kit that allows the owner to store the cryptocurrencies within the public address engraved on the dial. A sealed USB containing the private key keeps the wallet safe. Like all Franck Muller watches, the limited-edition set “Free the Money, Free the World” is characterized by its elegant arrangements and elaborate watchmaking machinery.
«It has been an incredible experience working with Franck Muller’s team to design the world’s first Bitcoin Cash watch.. 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 excellent so far.».
The “Free the Money, Free the World” watch is already having a huge hit in Hollywood with various celebrities and well-known hip-hop artists. Some are rapper Young Thug, YouTube and video game star Faze Banks, Cardi B, among others.
“This has been an exciting project and it is beyond the honor of working with Bitcoin.com, Mate Tokay and Roger Ver on this. We will liberate the world together. These are words from Tyler Gallagher of Regal Assets during the announcement.
