Following a number of leaks last year that saw the company reveal the NFC-equipped logic board from the iPhone 6 and even build a booting device from parts in the weeks before the device's official debut, Feld & Volk moved quickly to launch its own versions of the device. The company specializes in modifying iPhones for the luxury market by replacing the standard rear shells with new ones made from other high-end materials, frequently including touches such as gold plating and lighted Apple logos.

Feld & Volk's first iPhone 6 offering was its Wood collection, priced at $3900, but the company is now moving forward with a number of new collections to be shown starting later this week at the Baselworld watch and jewelry expo in Switzerland.

Among the new materials being shown by Feld & Volk are carbon and titanium, with a new model pairing a carbon rear panel with a titanium frame and a glowing blue Apple logo. The iPhone 6 Carbon is already being featured by French retailer Colette, which notably was the site of the Apple Watch's first public appearance last September.

Other new collections from Feld & Volk will include one with alligator leather and another featuring a sapphire back with a titanium frame, and Feld & Volk is also teasing upcoming announcements involving illumination to build upon the company's glowing Apple logo feature.

While there has long been a market for modified luxury versions of Apple's products, the segment is seeing increased attention with the upcoming launch of the Apple Watch, with Apple itself selling 18K gold versions of the device priced at $10,000-$17,000. Feld & Volk and other similar companies are no doubt looking to capitalize on this move by Apple, and Baselworld is likely to be the site of a number of such announcements. Feld & Volk will be making additional announcements at the expo and will be providing updates on its site and Facebook page.

The first one looks dirty. The second one just looks like it's how people today thought that people from 1960 though today would look.

Edit: Nevermind regarding the first one looking dirty. Just a weird angle. If you go to their home page you'll see that it's actually an assault on your eyes.

Whatever happened to Liquid Metal?

I believe they still make the sim tray and I don't doubt that some of the alloys Apple is using on newer devices are somehow related to LQMT, but it's not reflected in their stock price and I don't think Apple is buying those alloys directly. I'm long in their shares, hoping for something more between them since Apple is using various alloys in their watch for strength and shine, but also playing a long-term investment game since they're kind of floating right now.
