For those who aren’t aware, Swiss-watchmaker Tag Heuer has also ventured in to the production of luxury phones in the past. In fact, the company launched its Meridiist line of feature phones with the original Merdiist phone. This year, the company is adding a new member to the family with the Meridiist Infinite.

As a feature phone it might not have the smart capabilities of other devices running a full-fledged OS like Android and iOS, and its internals might be called mediocre in today’s standards, but the Merdiist Infinite packs a feature that even the most top-spec’d phones could only dream of – photovoltaic cells.

With its Perpetual Power Reserve, the Meridiist Infinite is able to charge its own battery while in standby mode. The invisible solar cells called Wysips Crystal was developed by Sunpartner technologies and is sandwiched between the sapphire glass panel and the LCD display, which can charge the phone using either natural or artificial light.

According to Tag Heuer’s website, the Meridiist Infinite will be produced in a limited quantity of 1911 as a commemorative item for the anniversary of the first dashboard chronograph which was patented by the company in 1911.
