Romain Jerome presents their interpretation of the chronograph, as part of their Titanic-DNA collection – timepieces inspired and created in tribute to the Titanic.
This model will be equipped with a new movement developed by Mr Jacquet of Concepto for RJ, the “C21RJ21”. This movement discovers variants of slate-gray and black and is equipped with a navy anchor as the oscillating weight.
With its bold, powerful and imposing design, the Titanic-DNA rusted steel T-oxy III Chronograph is a true instrument of chronometry.
With a diameter of 50mm – 53mm including the screw-in crown – it features articulated horns and push buttons which blend perfectly with the design of Titanic-DNA timepieces, integrating the characteristic transverse paws.
This horological creation, proudly displaying the characteristics of Titanic-DNA, easily finds its place in the Collection. The dial architecture is constructed on different levels, overlaying matt velvet finish for the back, a satin finish for the famous transverse cross and the Roman numeral XII, snailed counters, and numerous variations of black, with texture and hues obtained by vaporising charcoal dust from the wreck itself.
The oxidised steel bezel is the result of an extraordinary blend of authentic steel from the wreck lying 3840 meters under the sea, and from the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, where the Titanic was constructed nearly a century ago.
The design of the small chronograph counters recalls those of steam engines; the hands are inspired by the anchor of the Titanic; and the unbalance takes the shape of a piece from the wheelhouse – a host of refined finishes that echo the greatest naval achievement of the Belle Epoque.
The horological creations in the ‘Titanic DNA’ series have been symbolically limited to 2012 pieces, with the exception of the Tourbillon timepieces which are limited to 9, in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden voyage which will take place in 2012. Official certificates of authenticity guarantee the origin of materials used.
