RJ-Romain Jerome, the Swiss luxury watchmaker, adds another feather to its Moon-DNA collection – the Moon Orbiter. The new species that have been added to the RJ portfolio is a fresh tribute to the conquest of space. It exudes a distinctive look unlike traditional watches and comes laden with an exceptional manufacture movement – a flying tourbillon featuring unique three-dimensional architecture. The design and make of the watch make it quite evident that much effort has been gone into creating this masterpiece.
The Moon Orbiter, with its rectangular dial, truly resembles a gear out from a sci-fi flick. The watch is an amalgam of components that perfectly fascinatingly fits in its case, such as the sub-dials placed at 3 o’clock – hours and minutes dial, 6 o’clock – 42-hour power reserve indicator, 9 o’clock – the flying tourbillon dial, and at 12 o’clock – the brand monogram engraved dial.
Other attractive features include the geometrical design inclusive of the brand’s signature satin-brushed cross-strut traverses – that enunciates the sub-dials, and the five-shaped sapphire crystals fitted all around the case. The bezel-free case combines watchmaking steel with elements from Apollo 11 and is composed of an exclusive system of lugs mounted on pneumatic cylinders that ensure wearer comfort. It also provides a smooth fit to the black alligator leather strap with pin-buckle fastening.
The Moon Orbiter, with a recommended price of $115,000, would be a 25-piece limited edition. The watch is available in most of the regions of Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
