Swiss luxury watch brand RJ-Romain Jerome pays tribute to the legendary DeLorean DMC-12 sports car by unveiling a new limited edition timepiece, the Delorean-DNA Burnout.
In order to attain maximum speed and reach the targeted date, the emblematic 80’s car acts as a Time Machine whilst spinning its wheels and hitting the brakes. This process is called a “burnout” and leaves a trace as a result of the fusion between the tire’s rubber and the asphalt.
The textured dial of the DeLorean-DNA Burnout was made from this exceptional fusion of materials and is housed in a 46 mm steel case. The timepiece also features a brushed steel bezel containing elements from the original bodywork of the DMC sports car and the small seconds counter recalling the car’s dashboard with bright orange indexes.This new model is limited to only 30 pieces.
The DeLorean Motor Company (DMC), based in Humble, TX, USA, acquired the original company’s name in 1995 and now owns the largest remaining original parts stock from the factory, US stock and original suppliers. DMC assembles services, appraises, restores and sells DeLorean automobiles, parts, accessories and merchandise to customers around the world. DMC custom-assembles cars to order, featuring parts or designs from the original DeLorean automobile, with modern engine and suspension technology. A variety of DeLorean products have been developed through licensing relationships with manufacturers in footwear, apparel, toys, collectibles, gaming and other product categories.
