Romain Jerome Titanic DNA Watch

Romain Jerome Titanic DNA Watch (Image courtesy Romain Jerome)
By Andrew Liszewski

If you really loved that Titanic movie (still haven’t seen it BTW) or are just fascinated by the whole saga then you’d probably also be interested in owning a piece of the infamous luxury liner. Romain Jerome, a Swiss watchmaker has created a new timepiece called the Titanic DNA which uses parts of the actual ship in its construction. The watchface has a black dial thanks to a lacquer paint made with coal recovered from the wreck and the housing will be composed of precious metals like platinum in addition to steel procured from what’s left of the ship.

The Titanic DNA will also be limited to a run of 2,012 pieces which is significant since the year 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship. I’ve always been less than enthusiastic about people essentially looting the remains of the Titanic for profit but sadly there seems to be plenty of others who don’t share my concerns.

The Romain Jerome website doesn’t list a price for the watch but given what it’s made from I can guarantee it won’t be cheap.

    Its really disgusting to use this tragedy for a good busyness. Where can i buy watch with a piece of metal from WTC?

  • Jalal Akram Jomha

  • Michelle

    That is horrible…. how could they do that? Even though I am incredibly fascinated of the Titanic and the movie was amazing and incredibly sad, I would never EVER buy this product. As a matter of fact, I would rather protest against it. This is TERRIBLE!!

    its againts the law taking peace of the titanic, the ship should not be touched and taking the parts of it and making a buisness out of it! the ship is peaceful where she lays and ur taking parts of it its not right

  • himanshu

    this is completely horrible that some one using the heart of titanic for making money. in my point of view stop this thing right now, and i am pray from you to please take some action against this person, who never knows what is love, this is a big tragedy if this thing coming out to sell in open market, because titanic is a symbol of love not a piece to sell on market

    i agree with robert,ITS THE COAL, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also, the TITANIC is just going to colapse in on itself in 40-90 years anyway because of rust eating bacteria, so why not try and preserve as much of her memory as possible before its to late? also, i think that by preserving as much of her memory as possible, it will remind people that stupid actions (like not putting enough lifeboats on a boat) can have terrible conciquences, and that reminder can keep a tragity like the TITANIC from happening again. (by the way, what do you people think the TITANIC exibit is? thats right,artifacts from the TITANIC!!!!) by the way, i have a neclace with coal from the TITANIC, so i support saving pices of it.

  • roxxie

    Price of that watch is $150,000 and you also have to be qualified to certain swingers group if you wish to have it. Let's just say that you have to be well provided with mony as well as, oh, certain parts of body in order to posess it.

    Allegedly, it’s not JUST the coal. It’s also made out of steel recovered from the wreck.
