Romain Jerome is known for turning tragedy into luxury, and its latest masterpiece is no different. The Eyjafjallajökull-DNA watch has rocks and ash from the volcano that’s currently throwing fits in Iceland.
Say what you will about the absurdity of the concept, but I think we can all agree that this is one fine-looking timepiece.
Luxury watch makers Romain Jerome have an array of limited edition timepieces that possesses what they call “Titanic DNA.” The term refers to the fact that the watches have bezels made from “authentic steel from the wreck [of the Titanic] lying 3,840 meters under the sea, and steel supplied by the Harland & Wolff shipyards in Belfast, where the Titanic was built almost a century ago.”
Classical music store Passionato has packed the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach into an equally classic 120 Gb iPod classic. Classic classic classic. From the pictures on the site it doesn’t seem like the iPod has any Bachmarks on it, unlike the U2 iPod, but even at £499 ($748) this thing is still quite a steal for all Bach fans.
The headphone geniuses over at The Perfect Unison teamed up with the equally ill Dutch artist Parra to produce a limited edition of beautiful wooden headphones called The Perfect Unison x Parra. They probably ran out of creativity before they got to naming the thing.
