Founded in 2004 in Geneva, Switzerland, RJ-Romain Jerome has quickly become renowned for its unique concept, “DNA of famous legends”. RJRomain Jerome allows its customers to own a part of history by creating highly emotional timepieces and accessories inspired by and incorporating the DNA of a contemporary legend. RJ’s watches are Swiss made and combine craftsmanship and know-how with outstanding technological expertise. They embody the values of their time: a sense of distinctiveness, a need for speed and a spectacular yet discreetly sophisticated aura of virility.
The watchmaking Maison draws upon the strength of the sea, the air and the earth. Whether through recovering steel from the Titanic or from the Apollo 11 space shuttle, mingling silver with Moon dust or sculpting volcano lava, RJ asserts its iconoclastic spirit and electrifies tradition by celebrating contemporary legends. The magic of the Moon, the power of the earth and underwater mysteries are the poetic driving forces behind this creative explosion. Air, earth and sea: it is now up to everyone to find their own universe, and to give substance to their dreams and to their own vision of Time.
Sea Titanic-dna Titanic-DNA is an exclusive and original collection inspired by the legendary ship that emerged from the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast on April 10th, 1912. RJ-Romain Jerome pays tribute to the famous liner by instilling its timepieces with part of the Titanic legend. It is a vibrant homage to the extremely adventurous and creative spirits that created this piece of history.
Each Titanic-DNA timepiece features an oxidized steel bezel, resulting from an extraordinary blend of authentic steel from the wreck lying 3,840 metres below the water and steel provided by the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast. RJ-Romain Jerome also infuses its new Titanic-DNA timepieces with vigorous steampunk-inspired aesthetic codes, thereby blending industrial age machinery and postmodern sensibilities.
Steampunk is a full-fledged artistic style involving references to a setting where steam power is widely used. It incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy, and is also known as retrofuturism. Faithful to these aesthetic codes, the Steampunk timepieces from RJ feature rust and rough hand-made finishes.
