RJ-Romain Jerome Steampunk 46 Auto Camo Editions

RJ-Romain Jerome is enriching its Steampunk 46 Auto collection with a series of two Camo models, each limited to 25 pieces only. Crafted in Switzerland, this new collection emphasizes the meticulous work of artisans.

The Steampunk 46 collection is the natural evolution of the original model in 50mm with a smaller and thinner case, capturing the core characteristics from the much praised and distinctive Steampunk timepiece from RJ-Romain Jerome.

The complexity of the dial has remained with powerful elements inspired by the transatlantic ships of the 20th Century and the industrial era, such as the small seconds hand propeller-shaped at 9 o’clock or the metal hex cap screws. And to accentuate the industrial feel of the timepiece, the brand introduced an exclusive satin-brushed gunmetal bezel with RJ “rough” finish.
Going full Camo, the first limited edition is making a statement as well as an asserted masculinity. This very straightforward Camo style is represented by touches of green and beige as well as a special Camo forest pattern either printed on the alligator strap or hand-painted on the Roman numerals VI and XII of the three-dimensional dial. The inner bezel varnished in beige adds the right amount of depth and draws attention to the circular grained and rigorously bead-blasted blackened bridges bordered by the powerful Gunmetal bezel.
The second limited Camo edition is a splash of colours. Adding a modern twist from the first Camo edition, the Steampunk 46 Auto Camo Pop is fashionably subtle. The bright colours, either the yellow rubber insert on the crown, the RJ logo painted in Red or the coloured Camo pattern painted on the crafted Roman numerals, are popping out of the all black dial and case. The inner bezel varnished in black combined with different layers of components creates a real sense of depth. To complete the timepiece, bright blue stitches were sewn on the hand-made black alligator strap.
