Romain Jerome unveils the Liberty DNA Watch
The statue has recently undergone a centenarian restoration process and some of the fragments that resulted from it were given to Romain Jerome. He then incorporated the pieces into this gorgeous watch. It mainly features a bronze bezel adorned with 12 spikes, a reminder of the statue’s crown.
Even the oxidized copper has been clearly replicated, by the verdigris dial. The strapping was crafted from vintage brown alligator leather, while a bronze tone covers the facetted hands.
The case-back features a medallion which reminds of the flame of liberty the statue has been carrying in hand all this time, plus a few stripes, just like those on the American flag. As time goes by, the timepiece will suffer a few changes – the colors it features will get to mimic their real sources.
The Romain Jerome Liberty DNA series is limited to just 125 units, each one priced at $14,900.
