We might not have seen the final iPhone 5 design just yet, but this hasn’t stopped Gresso from publishing details about their titanium bumper case for iPhone 5. The case strangely has a lifetime warranty, which sounds great but we don’t know how many iPhone users keep a phone for a lifetime, and considering the design changes every few years it seems a little pointless. If you have the money to splash out, we are talking celebrity cash here, then you might want to purchase the Gresso iPhone 5 bumper case for around $3,000 when it releases next month, and yes that is the price for a case only.

The Gresso bumper-case is also compatible with other accessories and devices. The innovative patented technology has no analogs in the world.
Gresso designers and engineers have been working through every detail of the bumper for several months. A solid titanium was chosen to become the main material. Being both strong and light, the metal not only brings an exclusive touch, but also unique protection, as titanium surface is extremely hard to scratch. A PVD-coating is applied for higher wear resistance of the bumper frame, adding a deep dark color. Directional grinding technique creates matte and slightly rough metal texture. The bumper-case elegant image is highlighted by a gold inset of 18k with flawlessly engraved Gresso Revolution inscription.

The configuration accents the iPhone 5 distinct design, as well as protects the sides, back and front from damage and scratches.
