Rich splash out on Titanic watch

Issue No. 2299

A luxury jeweller has come up with a particularly tasteless ornament to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

Swiss firm Romain Jerome is selling watches made with metal from the Titanic’s hull recovered from the seabed.

The gruesome watches will go on sale next year priced up to £750,000 each.
