Watch Made From Rocket Parts and Moondust

November 14, 2008

These days, a watch is a status symbol.  The function of telling time is covered by everybody’s cell phone.  Nobody really needs a watch.  So, embracing that, Swiss watchmaker Romain Jerome made watches out of parts from the Titanic, and another watch that only tell you whether it’s day or night.  Now they've got a new masterpiece. 

Their newest creation is out of this world.  The Moon Dust-DNA watches are constructed from actual moondust, pieces of astronauts’ space suits, and pieces of the Apollo 11 rocket.  The watches have teeny craters carved into their faces that are filled with the dust from the friggin’ moon.  The watches range from about $15,000 to $500,000.
