Who Wants A Watch Containing Volcanic Ash From Last Week's Icelandic Eruption?

Illustration for article titled Who Wants A Watch Containing Volcanic Ash From Last Weeks Icelandic Eruption?

Romain Jerome's design looks burnt to the crisp, but if that's the style your wrist has been craving then be quick—there's just one available. The price isn't listed as it's one of those cases where if you have to ask you really can't afford it—but considering there's still thousands of stranded people all across the world trying to fly home via Europe, you could probably trade them a loan of your speedboat for their far-classier Rolex.
