Romain Jerome Chrono Tourbillon Limited Edition Watch

This is the first time we pronounce the name of Romain Jerome on our pages. Considering this, we have to give it some style, thus presenting a new version of their Titanic DNA and tourbillion collection. Simply called Romain Jerome Chrono Tourbillion, the watch features the old 46mm case used by Romain Jerome since some time ago sharing a unique oxidized steel bezel look.

This represents actually an attempt of recreating the effects of salt water over metal, after years of interaction. Furthermore, to enhance the theme of this watch series, a small part of the bezel’s metal comes from the real Titanic’s hull. Another good thing to know is that the series will be available in three models, with different case materials: steel, PVD black steel and 18k red gold. All of them are limited editions, following Romain Jerome’s tradition.

The typical steampunk-style of the RJ watches has been changed into a partially skeletonized open dial with obvious indicators and views of the movement, manually wound and crafted by Concept. The manufacturer is undeniably using the solar-style tourbillion carriage, the time being shown with subsidiary seconds dial, thirty-minute monopusher chronograph and tourbillion.

The pusher is on top of the crown, as a change in RJ’s design along the years. The series will be available in only 27 units, with 9 units for each model. Fit for the upper-class, the costs for one piece vary between 199,000 and 219,000, depending on customer’s choice.
