RJ-Romain Jerome Steampunk Auto 46

Swiss luxury watch brand RJ-Romain Jerome has enriched its existing Steampunk collection with a totally new, refreshing and contemporary design, featuring a smaller case and a sporty, energized look.

RJ-Romain Jerome has created a new legend characterized by its creative design and sophisticated mechanics. Inspired by the ocean liners of the 20th Century, the new Steampunk Auto 46 is a true testimony to the Industrial Revolution and to the artistic movement that followed. Housed in a new 46 mm black PVD-coated steel, steel or red gold case, this new collection embraces a new aesthetic sharing the brand’s bold and hedonistic spirit.

The Steampunk inspiration is visible throughout the design of the timepiece, from its bezel - in either rusted steel or Gunmetal steel – to its retro-futuristic dial. The oversized Roman XII and VI numerals are highlighted in either steel, black gold or red gold with RJ’s “rough” finish and matching minute and hour hands. The tips of the hands recall anchors and browse through the dial, revealing each detail as time passes. Another strong reference to the ocean liners is revealed by the seconds hand at 9 o’clock, mirroring a propeller.
Steampunk Auto Gunmetal Black
RJ-Romain Jerome’s new timepiece showcases geometrical clean lines providing the dial with an incredulous sense of depth due to its layers. The dial has been created to highlight the sturdy, circular graining and rigorously bead-blasted blackened bridges which recall the raw energy emanating from a coal blackened engine room.
Steampunk Auto Red
The RJ logo has been delicately engraved at 3 o’clock whilst the crown recalls the material of each case : steel, red gold or black PVD-coated steel. Furthermore, the calf brown or black leather straps highlight the modern and provocative bezel of each timepiece.

Swiss Made, each watch has been designed as a functional talking piece, inspired by the mechanics of the early 1900’s, and will accompany you on your contemporary adventures thanks to its automatic winding movement.

Limited to 999 pieces per model, the Steampunk Auto 46 is a reinterpretation of an iconic timepiece. This collection pays homage to the extremely audacious and creative spirits that have forged our contemporary history.
