Swiss watchmaker Romain Jerome has unveiled the Liberty-DNA watch, a new timepiece to mark the 125th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.
“Loyal to the aesthetic of the Statue of Liberty, the bronze bezel of this 125-piece limited-edition timepiece is adorned with 12 spikes reminiscent of the statue’s famous crown. It will acquire a delightful patina as it ages over time, thereby adopting the colour of the original, whose precious DNA is featured on the dial. Particles of Miss Liberty have been incorporated into the verdigris dial which also evokes the colour of oxidised copper. The facetted hands are bronze coloured and the vintage brown alligator leather strap sets the perfect finishing touch. The medallion on the case-back of the watch depicts the flame of liberty lighting up the stars and stripes of the American flag.”
Limited to only 125 pieces, the Romain Jerome Liberty DNA watch will be priced at $14,900.
