The Grand Touch Executive (GTE) was the first phone to use stone like polymers. I also designed a unique mechanism to insert and remove SIM cards mimicking mechanical watch movements.
The Body: Exceptional design and pioneering spirit
The Grand Touch Executive body was CNC machined from solid materials (exotic wood or stone hybrid material). A proprietary composite method was developed so that we could create a 0.6mm thick 3D veneer attached to an aluminum support structure. The back center panel and buttons are crafted from sapphire crystal, combining for a total 50 Carats. The back sapphire panel displays three windows; camera, LED flash, and the SIM card mechanism.​​​​​​​ 
The Grand Touch Executive was available in 5 styles: Burl, Cocobolo, Ebony, Granite, and Marble. 
SIM Key & Mechanism: Unlocking Creativity
The key allows the user to become part of the mechanical experience. The SIM card movement is precision assembled from stainless steel components and is accessed with the specialized Mobiado Key.
