Romain Jerome has introduced not one, not two, but three dazzling designs available in different configurations. With watchmaking at it’s best, the latest diamond-encrusted pieces from the house of RJ feature glittering gems set by hand and promise to make the wearer sparkle with their bespoke brilliance.
The Moon Invader 40 Models
After featuring astounding elements of the Apollo 11 spacecraft in the Moon Invader 40, makers at RJ have upped the futuristic ante by adding a stunningly bejeweled body to the timepiece. Whether in steel or black PVD, each bezel comes set with respectively 70 diamonds (0.71cts) or black sapphires (0.89cts), which sublimate the “cushion” shape of the watch and render the timepiece a subtle sophistication. Opulent components combined with a space-age design offer this timepiece an understated elegance. Both styles bear a price tag of approximately $14,000.
The Moon Dust Red Mood Chronograph
Already lighting up the Moon-DNA collection with its stellar sheen from red gold, the Moon Dust Red chronograph features 164 diamonds (1.14 cts) and the distinctive RJ-Romain Jerome design codes with the hand-sculpted lunar grey dial symbolizing the Moon and the four-blade “seconds hand” evoking satellite solar panels. Red gold for the case, carbon fibers on the bezel and diamonds embellishing the lugs harmoniously combine to create cosmic radiance. Compared to the glorious chronograph, the price is an irradiant $38,000.
Titanic DNA Collection
286 precious stones brighten-up the bezels of the Steampunk models. Whether self-winding or chronographs, these timepieces rightly reflect the Steampunk aesthetic, which is a mix of a foregone era and modern extravagance. Creating a powerful contrast with the raw machismo of the Steampunk, the Titanic timepieces combine industrial astuteness with a lingering preciousness on an imposing 50 mm case. Prices start at a precious $30,000 and go up to almost $50,000.
