Interesting watch, made from part of the Titanic hull.

Recommended Posts

It's a tourbillon, the casing I think is actually kind of cool. What bothers me is all of those people that died because of this hull. Oh yeah, and the $173,000 price tag. ;)

Buy it. It's OK. Hell, I've got some granite countertops made out of people's headstones.

Seriously, though. It's a nice looking watch. But it seems to me there is something fundamentally wrong with using parts of that ship in that manner. Sort of like making a watch out of the girders of the WTC.

If I was in the market for a watcht that cost $175k, I'd rather get a watch that's proven to go up in value, like a Patek 5970.

Well, if it's made from the hull of the Titanic, I would think that it would be prone to rusting.  Who wants to pay $173K for a watch that will rust?

Do people really wear watches these days? Seriously... With cell phones, iPods, and blackberries, who really needs a watch? Granted, I could see the whole Titanic collectors edition thing, but other than that...

I love watches they're like pieces of art.

Still trying to figure out if it's a good investment.

You go ahead and get one Robert and let me know how it does.

Maybe they can build a case for it out of salvaged wood from homes destroyed by hurricane katrina.

This proves that advertising can make self-important rich people buy anything.

Man, that would definitely sell me on it.

Personally, I think it's a mean watch and metals can be sealed to stop the oxidation process.

The problem with it is that it is attracted to ice.  Wear it at a party and hope noone gets too close with a frozen mudslide cause your arm will shoot out and smash the glass.....

Being from the Titanic is fitting though, because if you can swing a 175k watch, you are probably ready to shout,...."I'm on top of the woooorld....."

I'm one of those people that has to wear a watch. I feel naked without my TAG.

Hey Matt, I thought I was the only person that carried two pocket knives.

Same here, allways have two with me. Also carry and Olfa knife in my shirt pocket.

As for the watch, I am not real sure it looks pretty neat but it is quite ugly.  I did look at some of the others on the site and they do have some sweet timepieces.

That one is a really awesome watch.  I am way too hard on watches.  I am clumsy and they end up getting battered so I try to keep it pretty cheap.  I love the way they look though.

Whether it's a reel or watch, scratches and nicks add charachter.  ;)

imagine buying a car that was involved in a fatal accident. I wouldnt even think of it, letting alone actually buy it and use it, even if that's a lamborghini with the $2000 price tag.
