Swiss luxury watch maker RJ-Romain Jerome presents an exclusive model revealing the lyrical side of the brand. Known for its strong concept built around the primary universes AIR and SEA, the Swiss watchmaking Maison is introducing refined limited editions using traditional techniques on precious metals, to tell the stories of its preeminent collections.
Limited to 9 pieces, the Steampunk Auto Black timepiece has been enhanced with a red gold bezel depicting the universe each model stems from. Using chiselling on the red gold, a complex technique requiring precision from "orfèverie", the bezel illustrates either the poetic side of Space or Steampunk features. Forming a circle, the bezel looks as if it was delimiting each timepiece and completes these models full of contrast between the black and golden colors.
The ornaments on the bezel are a true testimony to the steam engines: zeppelins at 12 o’clock, a steamboat at 3 o’clock, steam locomotives at 6 o’clock and a submarine at 9 o’clock. All machines are thoroughly portrayed and linked by clouds or steam coming out of the machines.
Each bezel has been carefully worked by hand, using different techniques: advanced drypoint technique as well as chiseling mainly used to texture and structure the background; and soft engraving to form the different shapes.
