    Watchmaker Louis Moinet has created a collection of limited-edition watches with actual dinosaur bones, and they cost nearly $300,000 apiece.

    The Jurassic Tourbillon watch has fragments of bone from the diplodocus, which to us, reeks of something similar to what that annoying kid claimed his father owned when you were in the fifth grade.  But no, this is apparently real - or at least we're assuming it is because it was reported as such by the Austrian Times.

    The article goes on to quote people on how wonderful they feel to wear pieces of a dinosaur, even though it seems more, well, prehistoric than fashion forward.
