If you loved the Moon Invader timepiece collection from RJ-Romain Jerome, then you will no doubt
love the latest offering, the Moon Invader 40. Not failing to display the brand’s aesthetic sense and high-
tech craftsmanship, this new offering dazzles you with its 40 mm case. The case made from steel and
fragments from Apollo 11 has been designed to resemble a space vessel. The ball-and-socket joints on
the four “corners” of the case are shaped like the pivoting “feet” of the lunar landing modules. Not just
design elements, these joints hold the spring-bars of the leather straps and enable the watch to adapt to
all wrist sizes.
The Moon Invader collection’s signature security screws featuring four cup marks are present on the
back of this watch, on the movement’s functional locking screw. Besides boasting of the signature X
motif on the dial, you will also find a “meshed” pattern on the dial, which derives its inspiration from
the woven metal strands on the tires of lunar roving vehicles. The effect created by this pattern is the
first of its kind in the world of watch making. The inner bezel ring and the small seconds counter are
satin-brushed and the cut-out hands are enhanced with Superluminova. Powered by a mechanical self-
winding movement which has been especially developed for RJ-Romain Jerome, this timepiece is truly
put of this world.
Available in three versions—black PVD, steel, and titanium, the Moon Invader 40 timepiece is expected
to hit the markets this summer.
