Similar to the previous phone models, each Vertu Constellation is meticulously handcrafted (and hand signed engraved) by an individual craftsman in the village of Church Crookham, England.

The Vertu Constellation smartphone features the finest leather from calves raised in the European Alps region provided by Weinheimer, a German tannery with over 150 years of tradition in leather craft.

It has a scratchproof sapphire crystal display weighing more than 100 carats, a display that Vertu claims as extremely resistant that it can only be scratched by a diamond.

The Vertu Constellation is housed by a forged grade 5 titanium alloy chasis usually found in high-performance racing cars and spacecraft and 2.5 times stronger than stainless steel.
