In the wake of the spectacular success of the oxidised timepieces in the Titanic-DNA collection, Romain Jerome is simultaneously announcing both the end of the rusted steel Toxy II self-winding model, and the launch of the rusted steel T-oxy IV or “Ultimate Rust”, issued in a special edition.
The rusted steel T-oxy II becomes the first collector’s piece in the Titanic-DNA collection. Having sold 2012 of these watches around the world, the House of Romain Jerome, as it had announced, is terminating production of the rusted steel T-oxy II, making this model the brand’s very first collector’s piece.
The Titanic-DNA T-oxy IV Ultimate Rust with its rusted, stabilised* bezel featuring the last possible stage of oxidation prior to the decomposition of steel. For those aficionados of the T-oxy Concept, the Ultimate Rust represents its practical variant.
