This model, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is accompanied by a strap, which is partially produced from the materials, extracted from an ISS spacesuit. The strap is joined to the case by means of exceptional lug pieces secured by the star screws, which definitely represent a hallmark of a Romain Jerome timekeeper.

Echoing the sun sensors on some of the moon crafts, the dial hours and minute hands are another prominent feature, enthusiasts of the space exploration will not let go by unnoticed.
