Romain Jerome: Timepieces That Carry a Piece of History

Romain Jerome Arraw 6919 Limited Edition:

The bezel of the ARRAW 6919 incorporates material directly sourced from the Apollo 11 command module, the spacecraft that transported astronauts to the moon and back in 1969. This authentic piece of space history is embedded within a super-light, high-performance composite uniquely developed by Romain Jerome for the ARRAW 6919 collection.

The ARRAW 6919 combines advanced watchmaking with stunning design. It features a SW-280 mechanical self-winding movement, modified by RJ engineers to include their patented RJ Moon Phase mechanism. This innovative feature displays a 3D rotating moon, completing a cycle every 29.5 days. The watch also shows the Earth's position, and all adjustments can be made using the crown.

Romain Jerome Moon Dust:

Embark on a journey beyond the stars with the Romain Jerome Moon Dust Collection. Not only does it capture the essence of the moon with its cratered and textured dial, but it also offers a distinctive feature: a small amount of authentic moon dust adorns each watch face. Certified to be from genuine moon rocks, this dust is exceptionally rare on Earth. The watch incorporates metal from the Soyuz spacecraft, visible as rusted steel claws on the bezel. There is also steel and titanium from the Apollo XI mission in its case.

Romain Jerome Titanic DNA:

The Romain Jerome Titanic DNA collection is more than just a watch; it's a tangible connection to one of the most iconic events in history. Each timepiece in this collection contains small amounts of actual metal salvaged from the Titanic itself, along with metal recovered from the shipyard where the Titanic was produced in Ireland, as well as other steel components.

The highlight of the watch is its dial, featuring hands designed to resemble anchors with lume at their tips, and brushed Arabic numerals for optimal legibility. Some Titanic DNA models feature date windows, and are marked with an engraving of the Titanic on the back.
