Watch made from moondust is complete luncacy

26 November 2008

It's nearly Christmas and money's tight this year. We know what  you're thinking - what can I buy the man who has everything, when I only have a measly £300,000 to spend? Tricky. But you could do far worse than strap a bit of history and extra-terrestrial material to his wrist.

Not happy with making timepieces from scraps of the Titanic, tinker Romain Jerome has constructed a watch made from genuine lunar dust and metal from the Apollo 11 spacecraft. Clearly not the sort of stuff you pick up at Wilkos, so it's going to cost you.

If you're after a present that says "I love you" or maybe "you have a face like the moon" then be prepared to fork out between £10,000 and £300,000, depending on how much moondust was melted into the watch face and dial. Do you do Quidco, Mister Jerome? [Geekologie]
