Baselworld is going down in Switzerland this week, which means you can expect a ton of smartwatch news. We've already seen a few announcements, and today Samsung revealed a super fancy version of its Gear S2. The company teamed up with jewelry and watchmaker de Grisogono for a "fashion collaboration" limited-edition smartwatch covered in gold and jewels. More specifically, the 41mm device features rose gold, over 100 black and white diamonds and a black galuchat band.

The de Grisogono version of the Gear S2 offers features from the original device, including that rotating bezel and heart rate monitor. In addition to the library of compatible apps, this high-end version also includes two faces that closely resemble one of the watchmakers regular timepieces. You know, so you can make this look like a de Grisogono watch when you're not checking the weather. Samsung isn't talking pricing yet, but this Gear S2 will be available this summer. And yes, it will probably be ridiculously expensive.

A tech writer by day and a graphic designer by night, he was ushered in to the gadget world by an Atari and its vices: Frogger and Grand Prix. Little did he know that this was training for the undefeated seasons he would string together in NCAA Football (RIP). He covers the audio beat, spanning everything from headphones to streaming. He's also a Cheez-It expert.
