This article from CNN is amazing. People will try to market and sell anything. I think that someone could have just as much of the Titanic experience by purchasing a piece of Titanic coal from RMS Titanic Inc. and scribbling some of it onto the face of their own watch.

Persoanlly, I wouldn't want that watch if I was being paid to wear it. I don't begrudge anybody who does want it but for me, this thing is pushing the ghoulish line a tad to far for my taste.

As always, your results may vary.
