Louis Moinet | Jurassic Tourbillon | Fossilized Dinosaur Bone Watch | $289,611 UDS.

Rare and old rocks on watches are quickly becoming one of Louis Moinet’s specialties. Until now it was mostly space rocks and old stones, but they are are getting into the fossil business. The operative term for this collection is “Time Explorator.” A strange sounding term that refers to a yet-to-be-shown display box with all sorts of cool stuff going on. It will contain a bunch of watches and other time travely features – and will otherwise be known as “the treasure chest of origins.”

So the Jurassic Tourbillon watch is just that – one of Louis Moinet’s standard Tourbillon timepieces with a dial made from actual fossilized dinosaur bone. Cool! The case is in white gold and 47mm wide with baguette cut diamonds on the bezel and lugs. Louis Moinet chose rust colored galuchat for the strap to make the style of the fossilized bone on the dial. Now I want a watch with T-Rex teeth styled hands. Look out for more Time Explorator watches and items soon.

I found this post on Auto Motto It was posted a while back. I wish it was ready now!

The Audi Calamaro Concept was developed by Tibor for a design competition, organized by Porsche Hungary. The futuristic concept looks like a cross between a boat, a ski and perhaps even a stealth aircraft. According to the designer, the shape is inspired by “the bone of the cuttlefish”. Being a design of the future, we guess, the Calamaro will be powered by clean fuel options. We can’t really comprehend how this car will take off, land or even fly, simply because we can’t see any propellers, thrusters or for that matter, even exhausts.
