Titanic watches 'a message of hope'

Steel and coal from the Titanic have been transformed into a new line of luxury wristwatches that claim to capture the essence of the legendary oceanliner which sank in 1912.

Geneva watchmaker Romain Jerome SA billed its "Titanic-DNA" collection as among the most exclusive pieces shown off last week at Baselworld, the watch and jewellery industry's largest annual trade fair.

To make the watches, which were offered for sale for the first time for between $US7800 and $US173,100 (between $9400 and $209,200), the Swiss company created an alloy using the slab from the Titanic with steel being used in a Harland and Wolff replica of the vessel.

A spokesman said the combination of new and old materials infused the watches with a sense of renewal, instead of representing a reminder of the 1500 passengers who drowned when the oceanliner met her tragic end off the coast of Newfoundland.

"It is a message of hope, of life stronger than death, of rebirth," he said.
