Dunhill, a London-based men’s luxury accessories store, is hawking a fancy biometric wallet for $825. It’s basically a wallet-sized safe—sleek, sturdy, and understated—and costs no more than a month’s rent in Brooklyn. Take that, Dior! Now if only they combined it with the iPhone…
From Digital Trends:
This biometric wallet has a Bluetooth proximity alarm, carbon fiber shell, and fingerprint sensor for maximum security. It will set the rich and paranoid back about $825.
Afraid someone might take something out of your wallet? If you have $825 to spend, fear no more. Dunhill is selling what it calls a “Biometric Wallet” that it claims is virtually indestructible and can only be opened with your fingerprint. Scared of someone taking the entire wallet? It can be linked to a mobile phone via Bluetooth and set to sound an alarm if your phone and wallet are separated by more than five meters (15 feet).
This wallet is built to be durable. It has a carbon fiber shell, leather interior, and stainless steel money clip. If only its design matched its top-notch construction. Almost any standard wallet looks slicker than this clamshell.
Would you invest more than $800 into a wallet? If so, what features would you require?
