As a sign of appreciation of the contemporary art, Romain Jerome
has cooperated with an internationally famous Swiss artist, John M Armleder
. Together, they have created ten unique timepieces. Every watch in the collection catches the glance by the skull
that has recently been in the center of attention in the artist’s work.
The new Romain Jerome watches
, veritable works of art, are destined at both art and watch collectors. Manuel Emch
, CEO of RJ-Romain Jerome, highly appreciates contemporary art and has always admired John M Armleder’s work. The artist doesn’t provide any classification of his work, having opted for a principle of constant "questioning"
that gives birth to hybrid interpretations of different genres.
According to the artist, the skull recalls a memento mori and reminds of the passing of time.
The Romain Jerome Art-DNA watches are sculptured from polished steel. The hammered, polished dial
features a raised skull motif applique
. The underside of the skull applique is lacquered with a color shown due to a sophisticated play of shimmering reflections on the dial. Each timepiece reveals a different color.
The case-back of the Romain Jerome John M Armleder Art-DNA watches
is numbered and has an engraved medallion with John M Armleder’s signature.
