My inner marketing professor is very impressed with some of these innovative ideas.  Looking at the prices of the watches, it looks like they are getting more for a piece of the scrap metal than they could have gotten from the original car.  I have to admire that.

Also, there is a reason that stainless steel is more popular than wood and plastic when it comes to watches, and anyone who buys a wooden watch will discover that reason soon enough.  How many trees died to make a stainless steel watch?  Which material is more recyclable?  Sometimes I envy these "green" marketers.  They have the most gullible market on the face of the earth.
