Swiss watchmaker Romain Jerome SA appears to have gone a bit off the beaten path in sourcing materials for its latest luxury watches, with the company re-purposing pieces of the Titanic for a limited edition run. According to Reuters, the company mixed a three-pound piece of the hull of the Titanic with some steel from a replica to create an alloy for the watches, with some coal from the ship's debris field finding its way into the paint used on the watch dial. If that's not enough, the so-called "Titanic-DNA" watches also come in three varieties of bad taste, with steel, gold, and platinum versions available for between $7,800 and $173,100.
