Nothing truly captures the symbolic sinking of a mighty empire like designer watches.

Absolutely!!! And, since money is not an issue, I'd also get a suit of armor made from the same material.

Thats ridiculous.

Nah, I don't wear watches.

No. I would rather leave the ship alone. Let it and the people that died that night rest in peace.

Yeah, that's kinda cool. But it's insane, too.
15 yrs ago - Wednesday 5/2/07 - 8:31:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I wouldn't. I don't wear watches anyway. I'd say leave the ship be where it is now.

No, it's pointless whether you have the money to waste or not. If you're going to dredge it up at least put it in a museum or something else worthwhile.

Yeah. It's pretty nifty.
15 yrs ago - Wednesday 5/2/07 - 9:08:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, it would be cool to own.

I couldnt agree more with that!!! It is not a "historical site" as some like to call or think of it. It is a place of great tradgey that should not be exploited like it has been recently...all the specials you see on tv (the history channel during april) even if it is the anniversery.

No, I don't want or wear watches.

that'd be a nice conversation starter

"see this watch? it's made from the titanic"
response: "oooohhhh, wow, nifty"

the steel needs to be recycled in some way, do you think iron mines are never-ending?
