Romain Jerome Made with parts of the Titanic – Ultimate Rust 1/1

After the iconic oxidised models of the Made with parts of the Titanic timepieces, the collection is now featuring the Ultimate Rust. The stabilized rusted steel bezel represents the last possible oxidised level before decomposition. The uncertain result of the oxidation process makes every timepiece unique.

The rusted steel bezel results from an extraordinary fusion process. Original steel that was reclaimed from the wreck lying 3840 meters below the ocean has been combined with new steel to form the fused metal. The new metal was supplied by Harland & Wolff in Belfast, where the Titanic was built nearly a century ago.

The horological creations in the ‘DNA of famous Legends series have been symbolically limited to 2012 pieces, with the exception of the Tourbillon timepieces which are limited to 9 and of the special editions, in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden voyage which will take place in 2012. An official certificate of authenticity guarantees the origin of materials used.
