Swiss luxury watch maker RJ-Romain Jerome introduces a new generational icon to the wondrous collaborations collection, bringing us back to the 1980’s with an iconic video game favorite. RJ-Romain Jerome and The Tetris Company, LLC presents the newest addition to RJ’s Generational Icons, the Tetris-DNA
In celebration of the game’s anniversary, initially released in June 1984 and designed by Alexey Pajitnov, the iconoclastic brand has immortalized a Tetris gaming sequence on the dial of the watch. The dial features a random sequence of the game’s signature Tetriminos, the famous geometric shapes composed of four square blocks, housed in the famous 46 mm Moon Invader case. This iconic case has become the exclusive home of RJ’s Generational Icons collection, with an atypical design that enhances the uniqueness of the brand’s concept and its artisanal know-how.
The Moon Invader’s black PVD-coated titanium case highlights the famous Tetriminos that have been gemset by hand in the center of the dial. Focusing on RJ-Romain Jerome’s savy artisanal know-how, each Tetrimino has been crafted as a combination of four “Clou de Paris” in aluminium a first for RJ-Romain Jerome. This very complex process once again positions RJ as an avant-garde watchmaker, always innovating and creating original decorations for its timepieces. Furthermore, each “Clou de Paris” has been anodized thanks to a special process which enhances the complex artisanal execution and helps bring out the fine details on the dial.
