Growing up I had this book about disasters that for some reason intrigued me greatly. The most interesting disaster to me was the sinking of the Titanic. While the sappy love story flick did diminish my interest in the Titanic to some degree, I still find the entire ordeal fascinating.

A Swiss jeweler by the name of Romain Jerome is producing Titanic DNA Watches. These watches are supposedly made from actual pieces of the Titanic ship. You can choose to get your watch in gold plating like the one on the left in the picture or the severely rusted one on the right presumably just as the metal was on the ocean floor.

Supposedly the watch's face is crafted from coal that was still in the ships furnace and the design mimics that of gauges on Titanic. They will be available in limited edition of 2.012 of the watches and they are planned to sell for a whopping $152,435 each. I for one would certainly want proof of the authenticity of the materials if I was going to pay that much money for a watch. Via Sci Fi Tech
