World's first Bitcoin watch now available from Franck Muller

Leading watchmaker Franck Muller has released what it is calling the world's first functional Bitcoin watch. The luxury Swiss manufacturer created the Encrypto watch in collaboration with crypto investment company Regal Assets.

The limited-edition watch will be available from Frank Muller's Dubai Mall store, as well as online. Payment in Bitcoin is possible, as well as more conventional payment methods.

A key part of the watch is the QR code of Satoshi's Genesis Block address, integrated within the dial design. Each model also comes with its own unique public key, laser-engraved on the dial. Users can scan this code in order to check their BTC balance, or deposit more. Another part of the set is a sealed USB stick, which contains the counterpart private key. This physical storage solution was developed by Regal Assets.

According to Frank Muller's regional director Erol Baliyan, "We always aim to impact the customer at an emotional level and create a bond between the customer and the timepiece. As a brand, we are a trend maker with a solid track record and are not shy when it comes to adopting innovation. Bitcoin is the millennial gold is the perfect marriage between innovation and personal choice."
