Swiss luxury watch brand RJ-Romain Jerome presents its new Tattoo-DNA wristwatch in collaboration with world renowned tattoo artist, Xoil.
Xoil has applied his art on watch straps as an extension of his world. Inspired by nineteenth century imagery, the artist has created five worlds, or systems, based on the themes of Belief, Balance, Feeling, Perception and Emotion, in which legendary animals and mythological figures are thrown alongside anatomical plates and esoteric symbols. Each of these worlds is tattooed onto a board of five leather straps, with the illustrations overlapping from one bracelet to another. The 25 pieces adorning the Tattoo-DNA by Xoil collection are therefore unique and part of a harmonious whole guaranteed by the distinctive style of the artist and his very graphic tattoos which spread across the entire body, beyond the conventional areas.
The skeletonised small seconds ring, off-centred at 9 o’clock, was integrated into the dial to link the two worlds. And to accentuate the duality of the timepiece, RJ-Romain Jerome modernised the blue hands by reproducing the needles Xoil uses for his tattoos.
To finish the timepiece, RJ-Romain Jerome’s four characteristic paws secure the case, complete with hollowed lugs where the strap tattooed by Xoil takes its place.
The Tattoo-DNA by Xoil collection is limited to 25 unique pieces, each delivered with a certificate signed and numbered by the artist.
