Neo-Victorian Cell Phone Still Smaller (and More Stylish) Than 1980s Brick Phones

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 1, 2011

If you’re sick and tired of your modern, touchscreen smartphone, then have I got a deal for you. This retro-styled cellphone is sure to stand out from the crowd.

What you’re looking at here is what was once a Sagem X-5m cell phone, which has been converted into a neo-victorian calling device thanks to the creativity of one J. Redmer from Poland.


The phone has been integrated into a handmade wood case, and modified to use some antique brass buttons for dialing. The backlit LCD screen appears to have been set behind a green window to give it a glow which fits nicely with the retro style of the phone.


It’s currently listed over on Etsy for $350 (USD), and if you want it, you need to know that it only works on GSM 900/1800 bands, and comes with a 230V charger. So if you happen to live in Europe, you’re in luck. Be sure to check out Redmer Werkstatt’s Etsy shop for more of his unusual Neo-Victorian and Steampunk creations.
