I honestly think Bosch did this to encourage Modern Family’s Gloria to take up more home improvement work around the house. Otherwise, why would any company deck a power drill in multi-colored Swarovski crystals? Released in 2014 in limited edition, the Bosch IXO Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver with Swarovski Crystals (Bosch Swarovski) is listed on UK Amazon. Partners of power drilling fashionistas can relax a bit because they offer to send it by mail only to US and UK.
Back in 2014, it was released around the holidays, hence the festive white, red and green color combination. No less than 470 Swarovski crystals adorns the power tool. To light up poorly lit work areas, it comes with a LED power light. The Bosch Swarovski is fitted with a soft grip for a perfect fit and a comfortable hold for dainty hands of power tool loving girls. Whatever this means, sounds important “Optimum shape and size for working in tight corners”.
Everything else is standard from the regular Bosch IXO Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver. Powered by a non-Swarovski crystal studded Lithium-ion battery and it weighs around 1.3 Kgs (about 2.8 lbs). Plug format is British G-3 pin, American fashionistas need to be careful.
Extremely satisfied customers (all nine of them) left interesting comments, couple of them snarky. Here’s one, from Nina ”I no longer feel frumpy and unglamorous while performing DIY around the house thanks to this needlessly glitzy screwdriver. This was a real concern of mine and, I suspect, why so many women shy away from manual labor. Perhaps you could expand the range to include drills, hammers, and chainsaws? Or maybe a range of DIY-suitable evening dresses?”
A brand new Bosch IXO Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver with Swarovski Crystals costs £300 (approx. $365). A used one for goes for around £80 ($100) and a regular one is just £20 ($25). Screwdriver options galore at Amazon UK.
