Undeniably the most steampunk-like sea animal, RJ-Romain Jerome is dedicating its latest collection to the octopus, a fascinating marine creature from the collective imagination.
With this 25-piece limited edition, the Swiss watchmaking Maison introduces a truly marine and highly crafted timepiece, the Deep Blue Octopus, incorporating all characteristics and aesthetical features of the animal with a meticulous care devoted to each detail.
Evolving in the bottom of the sea, the new Deep Blue Octopus sports an all-black stealth look to echo the darkness of the ocean. The 47mm case with all elements in black PVD-coated steel, reproduces the bilateral symmetry typical of the octopus, with the two crowns at 3 and 9 o’clock.
The timepiece has also been built around the number eight to recall the 8 legs of the Octopus: there are 8 head screws on the case, 8 screws holding the case back as well as 8 rivets on each crown. And finally, the Deep Blue Octopus is water resistant down to 888 feet to explore the seabed.
To finish off this Octopus infused timepiece, the bezel is a reminder that this collection rightly belongs to RJ’s SEA universe. The black PVD-coated steel notched bezel contains oxidized and stabilized steel from the Titanic, another maritime giant.
