Founded in 2004, Romain Jerome has quickly become one of the most unique luxury watch companies on the market.
Using authentic materials recovered from historical landmarks, such as the Apollo 11 and Titanic, as well as substances like volcanic lava and moon dust, Romain Jerome watchmakers create highly emotional and rare timepieces. Romain Jerome watchmakers refer to this concept as the "DNA of Famous Legends".
Each piece derives its inspiration from the air, earth, and sea, focusing on deep space and sea explorations and utilizing rare authentic materials to create a piece of wearable art and history.
February 27, 2020: RJ has declared bankruptcy thanks to its majority shareholder, Alliance Investment Group SA, having unpredictably stopped the flow of funds.
And just like the Titanic, RJ Watches surprisingly hit an iceberg and has suddenly sunk, taking 33 employees with it.
RJ Watches is gone, so if any of these quirky watches ever appealed to you, now is probably the time to remember them.
RJ has captured the infinite fascination of the universe in a rare and beautiful red-gold ARRAW Star Twist model.
Part of the brand’s first collection entirely dedicated to women, this wondrous 39 mm case watch is orbited by a spinning bezel dotted with sapphires, framing a unique painting of an actual deep space object: the Blue Magellanic Cloud.
Inspired and paying tribute to historical events of the last century, each Romain Jerome watch integrates the DNA of a legend.
The most “unique” element of it is the use of mostly gray tones with “gunmetal” and polished steel. Unless you simply hate the industrial look of the dial and case design, the Romain Jerome Steampunk Auto 46 is very cool.
There is a place for rusted metal in luxury watches, sure… but its removal in this particular Steampunk watch is actually appreciated for a change. The polished lugs and case “claws” lend themselves well to a more substantial look, and the deep gray gunmetal finish of the bezel works nicely with the various shades of gray on the dial. If there were ever a timepiece that is truly “50 shades of gray,” then it is this Romain Jerome Steampunk Auto 46.
A tribute to a true generational symbol, the pop icon Spider-Man.
The Spider-Man applique on the dial side replaces the motion-work and the spider web is metallized on the sapphire crystal glass on the case back.
The Romain Jerome Spider-Man is definitely not your average luxury watch. They are bold, daring, creative. It relies on unique inspirations and creates an undeniable impact on the wrist, both because of its large dimensions and because of the theme used here.
RJ has introduced the first ladies exclusive watch series, and the design theme of Hello Kitty, who is one of the world's most popular cartoon characters!
The RJ x Hello Kitty collection features diamond-free bezel and bezel diamonds, the same "Moon Invader" case is made of stainless steel with automatic movement RJ003A. The limited edition only releases 76 timepieces. It commemorates the Hello Kitty which is the classic characters becoming flourish in 1976.
Romain Jerome has always taken risks in the luxury field, swinging wide and hitting grand slams with watches that incorporate incredible inspiration. A piece with a bold, won't-blend-in style, this Romain Jerome Tetris DNA is a playable highlight of this incredible alternative brand.
Crafted from polished black PVD titanium with steel bumpers, the watch features an RJ001-A self-winding movement, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal face, a 30m water resistance, a 42-hour power reserve, a black dial with gold-plated Superluminova-filled hands, a Tetris-engraved caseback and a red rubber strap with a buckle clasp.
