The timepieces in the DNA of Famous Legends collection are inspired by and created in order to pay tribute to the great legends of our time. Romain Jerome infuses its High Watchmaking creations with a part of history and so instils in them a strong emotional character and a real soul.
Titanic-DNA is an exclusive and unprecedented collection, inspired by the legendary ocean liner the Titanic, which went down in the North Atlantic in 1912. Romain Jerome pays homage to the illustrious liner by providing its timepieces with a part of the legend.
The rusted steel bezel is the result of the extraordinary fusion between authentic steel from the wreck lying 3,840 metres under the sea, and steel supplied by the Harland & Wolff shipyards in Belfast, where the Titanic was built almost a century ago.
The hands are inspired by the Titanic's anchor and rotate on a dial of deep black achieved using coal collected from the legendary wreck. The design adopted for the small seconds hand at 9 o'clock evokes the counters used on the steam engine dials.
These watchmaking creations are limited to 2012 pieces.
Moon Dust-DNA embodies the most extraordinary odyssey and honours the symbol of this headlong race whose main aim was to reach the Moon. The design of the collection is inspired by and incorporates the DNA heritage of the great players with authentic elements from the aerospace universe.
The lunar dial is based on a mineral deposit including Moon Dust. The case made of steel incorporates steel from the Apollo XI spacecraft and carbon fibres. The hands are inspired by solar panels of spacecraft. The strap in crocodile is partly woven with fibres from an ISS spacesuit. The small second's design evokes the landing target.
These watchmaking creations are symbolically limited to 1969 pieces.
