An $11,290 watch made out of dinosaur poo. True Story. Dinosaur watches seem to be the accessory this spring. Swiss watchmaker Yvan Arpa has created this luxury watch from coprolite (fossilized animal poo) and black cane-toad skin. Boing Boing points out that coprolite may be and exotic ingredient to find in a watch, but it's not an expensive material—it's available for purchase online for about $8 a pound. [Boing Boing]
