Romain Jerome Unveils Cabestan Titanic DNA Tourbillon Watch

May 23, 2008
The Romain Jerome Cabestan Titanic DNA Tourbillon is created in an extremely limited series of 6 pieces. It is a true wonder of innovative watchmaking and artistic design.

The unique timepiece incorporates a manually-wound CL001.1RJ caliber. The conception of the mechanism belongs to watchmaker Vianney Halter and Jean-Francois Ruchonnet of the DMC Group, a specialist engineering firm.

The caliber includes many unique features: transverse mechanical arrangements, cylindrical time and power reserve displays, a chain and fusee system managed by a removable winding winch, and a vertical one-minute tourbillon. The caliber provides 72-hour power reserve.

The shape of the one-of-kind 46mmx36mmx15mm Cabestan case displays with remarkable clarity the unusual transverse arrangement of the mechanisms. The case of the Romain Jerome Cabestan Titanic DNA Tourbillon is made from actual oxidized material taken from the Titanic shipwreck, fused to steel obtained from the Harland and Wolff shipyards, where the legendary vessel was built in the beginning of the 20th century.
