Let’s take a moment and imagine – you just received your newly minted gold-plated luxury Caviar Trump Gold iPhone 7 from Russia. What would you do next? Perhaps wait for Louis Vuitton to release their god damn Etui iPhone 7case. There is an option for quick gratification. Brikk, the Los Angeles-based luxury accessory maker unveiled their latest, gold-plated Lux iPhone Dock. It is offered in genuine 24k yellow gold, 18k rose gold or 950 platinum finish to match your iPhone. This is an original Apple iPhone Dock modified by Brikk.
The travel ready Lux iPhone Deck comes with a Brikk Lux Protect Case, a waterproof hard case with velvet lining. The phone sits upright in the dock while charging or syncing, even with a case on. You can place it on any flat surface on desk or countertop, and continue to use. Unlocking is an easy task even while the phone is docked, the home button is fully accessible for Touch ID and passcode entry.
With the audio jack on the back, it can be used with headphones with a remote control or as a line-out to connect to external speakers. USB port allows you to connect directly to a wall charger or a computer for sync and charge functions. Dock can be used with any device with a built-in lighting connector – means iPads, iPods and devices from other brands as well.
Lux iPhone Dock features an engraved Brikk logo and heptagon emblem on the top. The dock is polished and coated with a thick layer of gold in the color of you choosing. A one-year limited guarantee (standard from Brikk) and an optional on-site concierge service are available.
Regardless of the color, it costs $495. To breeze through the order process, they partnered with Amazon Prime for same day delivery. Chinese customers can order through Taobao. Brikk is also doing something unusual, they are giving 7% of the sales price from each unit to a charity of buyer’s choice after purchase to promote a “Luxury Tax” concept for greater good.
