A Kickstarter project offers hand-built wristwatches containing sand from Tunisian film set

Tatooine Sand Watches contain sand from the actual Tunisian filming location used as a set for the Star Wars movies. The project by Mary Moynihan is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. The hand-built, high-quality watches come with custom cases made of solid 316L medical-grade steel, the finest Seiko-Epson quartz movements, custom leather bands and an internal display capsule filled with the famous sand.

The sand, from the Tunisian film set where many of the Tatooine sequences were filmed, is securely sealed inside the capsule. However, it is loose and spills around under the dial when the watch is worn, making the watch a rare and unique item.
