Moon Dust DNA Watch

The Moon Dust-DNA watch by Swiss watchmaker Romain Jerome sounds like the ultimate geek accessory:
  • A lunar dial based on a mineral deposit including Moon dust;
  •  A 46 mm steel and titanium case incorporating steel from the Apollo XI space shuttle;
  •  Rusted steel paws including fragments of the Soyuz spacecraft; and
  •  A strap composed of fibres from a spacesuit worn during the ISS mission.
As far as I can tell, no actual DNA is included - instead they are using the term to mean "essence of" or, maybe more accurately, "related bits of". Still, very cool for anyone who wants to wear a little bit of space exploration.

Is this the prefect gift. I don't think so.

See you around.
