Geneva, Switzerland – May 24, 2017 – Octobrachia, the Swiss-based artisan product design firm, announced today their release of what they bill as the world’s most expensive Spinner Toy. Hand-crafted by experienced Innovative Agent Steve Raffner, the Spinget Luxury White Gold & Diamond Edition is priced at $100,000 USD and will be available in a limited edition batch beginning this month.
Working closely with independent Geneva jeweler Franc Vila and two of Switzerland’s top diamond suppliers, the Spinget weighs 100 grams and features 950 Top Wesselton flawless diamonds set in an 18k white gold base. To ensure quality and authenticity, each Spinget will be accompanied by a personalized certificate for the buyer.
Steve Raffner, experienced in independent high-end product formation and digital marketing with companies such as Rolex, believes there is a shifting paradigm in the Swiss luxury design culture.
“Why not make it?” Steve Raffner said when asked the reason for creating the Spinget. “We are passionate designers hanging around jewelers, makers, bankers in the country of cheese and chocolate. We want to offer luxury not in the form of complicated watches that nobody understands.”
