Meet Romain Jerome Space Invaders Watches

Jul 29, 2011
By agreement with TAITO Corporation, Romain Jerome has released its new Space Invaders watches, issued in a double limited edition of 78 pieces.

The new Romain Jerome watches pay tribute to the eponymous game, a true legend of the 80s. At that time the Space Invaders was a crazy theme of numerous TV programs and hundreds of cultural exhibitions. The popularity of the game even caused a lack of 100-yen coins when it appeared for the first time in Japan.

Each of the models is available in a highly distinctive case. It features a round shape within a cambered 46mm square with a back being almost rectangular. The case is rendered in black PVD-coated steel. At 3 oclock it reveals a screw-lock crown.

The lugs of the model are equipped with safety screws and integrated ball-and-socket joints, which ensure optimal wrist adjustment. The case has an integrated back part, made of spare parts from Apollo 11.

The grainy-textured stellar-patterned back features a medallion in Moon Silver RJ - a silver alloy, incorporating moon rocks. The case-back also sports the RJ safety screw, exclusively accessible to watchmakers. The water-resistance of each new Romain Jerome Space Invaders watch is assured down to 3 atm.

A special attention getter of every unit is surely its black 3D dial. It is composed of 3 bead-blasted and satin-brushed levels. The dial depicts pixelated Space Invaders, lacquered in various colors. The central hours and minutes are indicated by black oxidized hands, inlaid with C1 Superluminova.

The functions are driven by a self-winding calibre RJ001-A movement. Set with 23 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve.

Each new Romain Jerome watch is mounted on a black vulcanized rubber strap, which joins to a black PVD-coated steel buckle.
