Own A Sizeable Chunk Of The Moon With This Lunar Watch

Own A Sizeable Chunk Of The Moon With This Lunar Watch

If you’ve always wanted to experience the moon first hand, this unique timepiece is probably as close as you’ll ever get.

The aptly-named Lunar Watch doesn’t boast any fancy complications, and it isn’t breaking any new ground when it comes to tourbillon engineering. But what justifies its $US27,500 ($35,922) price tag is a housing made from a solid piece of 4.5-billion-year-old moon rock, collected from our lunar neighbour back in 1974 by the Soviet’s Luna probe.

So it’s expensive. But when you crunch the numbers on how much it costs to harvest genuine moon rocks, $US27,500 ($35,922) almost sounds reasonable. And the company behind this creation, the Analogue Watch Company, is only making 25 of them, so it’s not like every kid on the block will be wearing one within a week’s time.

If you decide to skip that mid-sized sedan and put your money towards one of these instead, there’s at least some guarantee you won’t ever run into anyone else on the planet who’s also wearing one.
