Baselworld 2017 – RJ Romain Jerome Unveils Limited Editions with Hand-Engraved Cases

RJ Romain Jerome divulges two restricted versions flaunting hand-engraved cases – a challenge to traverse the brand’s universe while investigating creative regions. Here are the RJ Romain Jerome Steampunk Black Auto Engraved & Skylab 48 Red Engraved.

RJ Romain Jerome presents two restricted releases (both restricted to 9 pieces) shipping you to a mix of the created universes of Jules Verne and Georges Méliès through some voyages extraodinaires or a trip to the moon.

These select arrangement depend on two RJ Romain Jerome significant models, the Skylab 48 and the Steampunk auto. Every bezel is meticulously hand-engraved utilizing procedures, for example, drypoint, etching, delicate etching… the difference between the super finely engraved pink gold bezels and the black cases upgrades the remarkable character of both timepieces.

The RJ-Romain Jerome Skylab has a specialized vibe, uncovering its internal activities in full straightforwardness. The skeleton development is portrayed by straight vertical and level scaffolds and the symmetric situating of the open-worked barrel at 12 o’clock and the equilibrium wheel at 6 o’clock. The development is improved with a black chrome finish. Running at 28’800 vibration each hour, it is made for Romain Jerome by La-Joux-Perret. It is outlined by a PVD steel case flaunting a pink gold bezel engraved with a style of stars and planet.

The name says everything for the Steampunk – it mixes behind the times innovative highlights, steam-powered apparatus into an intense, polarizing configuration encapsulating the inventive main thrust of the brand. The harsh completion of the dial with curiously large Roman numerals is improved by the cool ‘propeller’ little seconds at 9 o’clock or the cylinders at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock. The pink gold bezel is engraved with Zeppelins, steamships, steam locomotives and submarines. The case back is customized with a steampunk engraving.

The RJ Romain Jerome Steampunk Black Auto Engraved is worn on a black hornback cowhide tie fit with a collapsing buckle.
