Swiss luxury watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome has once again teamed up with La Joux-Perret to produce its latest timepiece, the Moon Orbiter GMT. Taking some aspects of the original model, the new creation is equipped with an automatic flying tourbillon caliber, a made-to-measure movement which has been entirely redesigned. Unprecedented for the brand, the Moon Orbiter GMT sports an additional complication at 12 o’clock, developed exclusively for this model: a fully-integrated, jumping hour retrograde GMT feature.
The new time zone is accompanied by a day/night function, which is indicated by a fully-functional disc engraved with the sun and stars. The complication is regulated by means of a dedicated pusher at 2 o’clock on the case, acting as the timepiece’s claws as the continuity of RJ-Romain Jerome famous X symbol.
The Moon Orbiter GMT marks a break from the previous model with a 48 mm rounded case, made from steel incorporating elements from the Apollo 11 spacecraft. In the centre, the dial is arranged around the brand’s iconic traverses, in which a flying tourbillon is set at 9 o’clock, balanced by the time dial at 3 o’clock. The tourbillon is particularly remarkable for its assertive aesthetics and for the bridges’ highly contemporary architecture.
