The Maximalist

Romain Jerome, inventor of specialty timepieces, will launch the Titanic-DNA watch in April, the first in a new series celebrating historical legends. Each one is infused with authentic pieces of the Titanic's rusted steel. The one-time run of 2,012 pieces signifies the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking in 2012. The ultralimited edition has a diamond-set tourbillion device to transmit the time both visually and audibly, and sells for $249,000.
