The famous watchmaker Romain Jerome is proud to present its remarkable Moon Dust-DNA Collection, dedicated to the conquest of space. It is an intriguing successor of the acclaimed Titanic-DNA Collection, which was created in tribute of the world’s greatest maritime legend.
Issued as a limited series of 1969 items, every watch from the novel line, reveals original components from the aerospace universe such as moon dust, as well as fragments of the Apollo XI and Soyuz space shuttles, along with the International Space Station ISS.
The Moon rider watch offers the functions of hours, minutes and seconds. Animating them is a mechanical automatic movement - C22RJ51 Concepto calibre, executed entirely by Jacquet. Studded with 23 jewels, this movement features a balance wheel, moving back and forth at 28,800 vibrations per hour. It boasts a 42-hour power reserve.
The watch features a 46 mm case, rendered in titanium and steel from the Apollo XI space shuttle. It is fitted with a bezel, manufactured from carbon fiber. The case of the model exposes paws, sculptured in oxidised steel from the Soyouz space shuttle. The timekeeper in question is also equipped with a crown, designed as space tools. Its water-resistance is down to 50 meters.
The dial of the exceptional Moon rider watch reveals a mineral structure that contains Moon dust. It is completed with the hands, encouraged by Sputnik antennas. The small seconds sub-dial is located at 9 o’clock.
Fitting the alluring Romain Jerome Moon rider watch is a Remborde alligator woven strap with fibres from an ISS spacesuit. The strap is equipped with a satin-brushed steel buckle.
There are also other interpretations of the Romain Jerome watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, available: 18K pink gold and steel case, as well as the tourbillon in titanium and a steel case.
