As part of its – Made with parts of the Titanic – collection, timepieces inspired by and created in homage to the greatest maritime legend of the last century – The Titanic – the house of Romain Jerome presents a new interpretation of its automatic model: Ala Grande.
Ala Grande presents a case with dimensions which are more generous than those of its predecessor, with a diameter of 50 mm, attaining 53 mm including the screw crown or clasps, the later being made of steel, ceramic or 5N pink gold depending on the model, and applied on a fully riveted oxidised bezel.
The transverse cross which is an essential part of the design of the tourbillons and chronographs of the collection integrates the dial of the automatics and takes charge of the noble oxidation process *. Fashioned with 116 rivets applied by hand by the craftsmen of the house of Romain Jerome, it is inspired by the hull and the boilers of the celebrated ship.
