Watch Straps that never get wet?

Researchers at the University of Zurich have developed a nanotech fabric technology that repels water. The fabric is made from polyester fibres coated with millions of tiny silicone filaments and when water falls on it, it stays as spherical balls on top of it until they are rolled off like marbles. So water can easily bounce off the fabric without leaving a trace. related links Nanotech Clothing can never get wet

They did with their Titanic DNA watch were they use material from the Titanic and now they’ve done it again with their Moon Dust DNA which uses steel from the Apollo 11 and supposedly, dust from a rock retrieved during the first mission to the moon even though I would question its authenticity. The watch will be made to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and several different version will be available at a price range…
