After the Black Mood and the Steel Mood models introduced this year, the Moon Dust-DNA collection treats itself to a new cosmic radiance with the Red Mood Chrono.
This lunar time piece carries all the distinctive RJ-Romain Jerome design codes: four “paws”, circular satin-brushed 3 and 6 o’clock counters, screw-locked lugs and large notched pushers. The round 46mm red gold case is topped by a carbon fibre-coated bezel.
The lunar grey dial is a hand-sculpted depiction of the lunar surface and its material contains some precious Moon dust. The circular seconds counter at 9 o’clock features a four-blade “hand” evoking satellite solar panels. The satin-brushed red gold-coloured hour and minutes hands are enhanced with “blue emission” Superluminova.
The black rubber strap confirms this dreamlike dimension of a Moon that transcends changing times and fashions, but devotees of astro-horological missions will be able to opt for the alligator strap partly woven with carbon fibers and fibers recovered from ISS spacesuits.
