The Titanic, the most famous ocean liner of them all, and now brought back to life almost a hundred years later with the Romain Jerome Titanic DNA watch. A complex and confidential fusion of materials salvaged from the wreck of the Titanic that lies 3840 meters under the sea, and from the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast where the Titanic?s life began almost a century ago. Officially certified and guaranteed, RJ-Romain Jerome has used their expertise to transform coal, steel and rust into integral parts of each timepiece. The rusted steel bezel is a combination of two metals separated by a century of time. Rust, once an enemy of the industry but now RJ has devised an unique process to stop the rust corroding any further, a first in the watchmaking industry. Original coal dust has been skillfully and expertly applied onto the dial to give it a deep dark hue with a charred texture. The dial itself features hands inspired by the Titanic?s anchor and the counters on steam engine dials. Fittingly limited to 9 pieces.
