When it comes to RJ-Romain Jerome, they do certainly have a distinctive way of going about things. They like to create watches with unique materials (say, using metal from the Titanic) and interesting dials (my favorite? The Batman DNA, of course!) Often, the focus is on the exterior of the watch, with the case and/or dial taking pride of place. Well, this definitely changes around with the RJ-Romain Jerome Skylab 48. Sure, the case is very familiar for the brand, but the star of this show is the movement.
Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind. In this series, we bring to light watch related videos which we feel are interesting and worth sharing with our…
Romaine Jerome is one of those far out there watch brands that somehow keeps creating crazy watches that I like. I can’t pinpoint exactly what I like about them, since some of the designs are pretty silly, but I like them none the less. Just launched is the Steampunk Auto Colours variations, a take on the previous steampunk watch done up in, you guessed it, bright colors.
Romain Jerome does things… differently. Their latest watch is a commemoration of a grand geologic event, that happened to ground air traffic in Northern Europe for 6 days. The Eyjafjallajökull (Icelandic for “Island mountain glacier”) volcano erupted in April 2010, creating some spectacular images, but also producing an ash cloud that disrupted air travel in Europe. The watch is part of the DNA series, meaning that it contains a part of the namesake, in this case volcanic stone. This iteration, with an Evo designation, is the third in the line, with a black PVD stainless steel case.
