Feld & Volk

I’d never heard of these guys until they made the news last week with their purported video showing an assembled new iPhone, but they run a fascinating/ridiculous business. They take new iPhones and customize them with gaudy, exotic replacement parts (e.g. solid gold volume buttons and silence switch), then resell them for almost $10,000. Think: Vertu but for iOS.
