Apart from setting watches with gold, platinum or precious stones, how else can you make a gift stand out?

Embed it with moon dust.

Romain Jerome's Moon Dust watches, certified by the Association of Space Explorers, contain moon dust from lunar surfaces, combined with "natural pigments" which are then applied to each watches' centerpiece.

"This revolutionary process enables the dial to have a multitude of natural and subtle shades, just like the Moon itself." The manufacturer says.

Available in a number of colors and shades, these watches are priced from $11,000 to $171,600.

  • 'you want' is an overstatement

    'you may want', or 'I'd love to have' is more like it.

    ...all the rest is for people with more money than brains and/or taste.

    Given the premise of the story which is "fantastic personal tech that is beyond the reach of those with normal-sized bank accounts" -- this is the best list the author could come up with? A bunch of boring everyday items that have been hit with a Bedazzler (albeit one loaded with real diamonds)?

    Really?

    • This writer is absolutely the worst one on ZDNet

      Her "articles" are fluff and nonsense and she struggles with grammar.
