We’ve been writing about the ridiculous luxury phones that Vertu has put out over the years for what feels like ages on Phandroid, but those days are coming to an end with the bankruptcy of Vertu in July 2017.

The last phone we covered was the Vertu Constellation that was aimed at travelers and actually had a decent set of specs, considering how technologically behind some of Vertu’s previous luxury phones were.

Now the company is attempting to sell some of its back catalog of phones from the Vertu museum to a hopeful collector in one gigantic auction. The entire collection of the Vertu Museum that includes 105 different phones produced by the company from 2002 to 2015. Alongside the collection, Vertu promises to deliver posters and marketing materials.

The bidding for this collection started at $26,000 GBP, which is around $34,000 USD. The auction only has a day left and as of the time of writing, it’s already received 12 bids.
