This watch is the new Romain Jerome Spacecraft, the first pilot watch unveiled by luxury timepiece manufacturer Romain Jerome. This new timepiece features a complication with its own discreet charm, combined with a pure, restrained design.
CEO of RJ-Romain Jerome, Manuel Emch and Eric Giroud imagined a very different type of product, combining retro-futuristic aesthetics and horological complexity. “The design evolved in step with our discussions and our numerous exchanges. That is what makes it such a singular object”, explains Eric Giroud.
The mechanical self-winding movement was exclusively developed for RJ-Romain Jerome. “The combination of these four functions – lateral, linear, jumping and retrograde hours – is unprecedented”, says Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. The movement features a kind of spring-driven carriage that drives the hour display visible on the side of the watch by means of a red-lacquered cursor moving beneath the metallised sapphire crystal every 60 minutes. The dragging minutes, appearing on a black disc, are read off on the top of the case that also features beadblasted titanium plates. Time-setting is done via a screw-lock crown at 12 o’clock.
The Spacecraft watch is fitted with a black polyamide mesh strap. This 99-piece limited edition is priced at about 20,000 Swiss Francs(Approx. $21,719 USD).
