Most of us have been fed a cruel lie when we were young; a dream that we could one day skippedy-hop on the moon’s surface like Neil Armstrong or float around in space like a limp sperm cell. To that end, we can make up for the lost time that we spent dreaming about it with the equally out-worldly Romain Jerome Moon Orbiter timepiece.
Made with steel from the Apollo 11 Spacecraft and actual moon dust, the materials used to craft this unique timepiece is matched only by its design which oozes a classy sci-fi appeal. RJ-Romain Jerome, the watch company behind this masterpiece, equipped the Moon Orbiter with a Manufacture movement which involves a flying tourbillon that features aesthetically intriguing three-dimensional architecture.
At $115,000, its price also means that the few people who would buy it are filthy rich or mighty high during the time of purchase. In any case, the Moon Orbiter is a limited edition of 25 piece, so being able to own one probably also means that you could afford to be a space tourist.
