The Cosmic Shiner, a FanFun 815T model with diamonds, targeted at the ‘well-to-do’ was unveiled this week in Tokyo. This limited edition model, with only 1,000 available, is to be offered for $4,000 via an interesting invitation only scheme. In addition to the custom design features by Kansai Yamamoto discriminating buyers will also be entitled to a new “Prestige Gold” membership service.
Available for order by credit card only, with estimated delivery of 30-days for the personalized handmade lacquer box, eager buyers will apparently also have to pick-up the April issue of Seven Hills magazine to get their required unique ID code to initiate the purchase process. The Kyoto concierge membership service – first year trial is included – will offer various agency arrangements such as hotel and restaurant bookings along with further special privileges to be detailed in early April.
