|The collections are Titanic DNA, Moon DNA and Eyjafjallajokull DNA. The Titanic DNA watch is the melting pot of coal, steel and rust from the most romanticized ship wreck. The century old rust blends with flaw less steel of today: The coal dust salvaged from a depth of 3840 meters under the sea is applied on the dial giving it the tone of coal. The entire dial is inspired by the images of the vessel ill fated to sink in its maiden voyage. The limited edition watches of only 2012 is the fitting recollection of the 100 the anniversary year of the wreck.

Eyjafjallajokull DNA captures the fury of the mother earth. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano in Eyjafjallajokull in 2010 inspired this awesome watch. The authentic rock that was hurled out by nature in its violent fury goes into the crafting of this wrath. The stringent limited edition of 99 pieces has made the watch the Holy Grail of watch collectors.
