RJ-Romain Jerome, the Swiss luxury watchmaker adds another feather to its Moon-DNA collection – the Moon Orbiter. The new species that has 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 a unique three-dimensional architecture. The design and make of the watch makes it quite evident, that much effort has been gone behind the creation of 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 fits in its case in a very fascinating manner, 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. For now, the watch is available in most of the regions of Europe, Middle East, and Asia.
