This Week’s Gimmick For Getting You To Spend Thousands Of Dollars On A Watch? Dinosaur Bones

By Andrew Liszewski

Yep, we’ve already brought you insanely expensive watches constructed with remnants of the Titanic, or specks of moon dust, but the Jurassic Tourbillon from Louis Moinet trumps them both with one simple yet awesome addition. Dinosaurs!… Or at least their bones.

The Jurassic Tourbillon, whose dial contains fragments of authentic fossilised dinosaur bones, takes us on a journey into the past, around 130 million years ago. Qualified as exceptional by experts, the colour and veining of these precious witnesses to our past underwent a meticulous process of preservation.

Of course it’s not like they’ve just pried open the case on your average Timex and crammed some bone fragments in there, the watch is still a luxury item made from 18K white gold with 56 Top Wesselton VVS baguette 3.46ct diamonds, and while it’s water-resistant to 30 meters, I highly doubt, like the dinosaurs, that it’s giant asteroid resistant. As for the price, I’ve no idea, but I assume it will be comparable to the aforementioned Titanic and moon dust models to give you a rough idea.
