he Titanic, the most famous ocean liner of them all, is now brought back to life almost a hundred years later with the Romain Jerome Titanic DNA watch. A complex and confidential fusion of materials salvaged from the wreck of the Titanic that lies 3840 meters under the sea, and from the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast where the Titanic’s life began almost a century ago.
Officially certified and guaranteed, RJ-Romain Jerome has used their expertise to transform coal, steel and rust into integral parts of each timepiece. The rusted steel bezel is a combination of two metals separated by a century of time. Rust was once an enemy of the industry but now RJ has devised an unique process to stop the rust corroding any further-a first in the watchmaking industry. Original coal dust has been skillfully and expertly applied onto the dial to give it a deep dark hue with a charred texture. The dial itself features hands inspired by the Titanic’s anchor and the counters on steam engine dials. Fittingly limited to 2,012 pieces.
Romain Jerome Titanic-DNA Steampunk Black Watch is a limited edition timepiece from 2012 and features a round, black PVD coated steel case (50mm diameter) with a stabilized Titanic rusted steel bezel, a black rubber strap, black gold coloured bridge with 4 steel pistons and a rohodium bearing on an integrated dial, raw finish on the VI and XII Roman numerals, running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, calibre #RJ001-AS self-winding mechanical movement, a 42 hour power reserve, and it is water resistant to 30 meters.
