Yvan Arpa Comes Up With A Dinosaur Dung Watch

Associations may end but it is inspiration that does not really fade away with mortal factors like time. Take the ex-chief executive of Romain Jerome. Yvan Arpa had gained a lot of fame and a creative notoriety when working for the Geneva-based brand. But now that he has moved on to follow solo dreams of his own (with another company it seems), one can still sense a strong presence of the Roman Jerome touch in creating timepieces with the most unusual components.

But the watch we are going to tell you about is surely something that has never been attempted before. Vesenaz, Switzerland based company Artya has designed the timepiece. What unique about this fashionable accessory is the litte fact – its face has been made fossilized dinosaur dung while the strap comes from the skin of American cane toad.

Howsoever eeky it may sound to the ears, the watch is worth a dekko and worth each penny constituting its $11,290 price tag. Did we ever know that feces would fetch so much money! Arpa informed the NY Times that the coprolite used in the watch face comes from a plant-eater that died about 100 million years ago in the USA of millions of years ago.
