Romain Jerome Spacecraft

Luxury watchmakers RJ-Romain Jerome have unveiled their first ever pilot’s watch, a timepiece aptly named the Spacecraft.

The timepiece was created in partnership with RJ’s Manuel Emch and watch designers Eric Giroud and Jean-Marc Wiederrecht.

The angular timepiece features a self-winding complication manufactured specially for Romain Jerome at Wiederrecht’s Geneva-based manufacturing facility Agenhor.

The titanium case is an unusual trapeze-shape with black PVD-coating and a rectilinear profile that has a faceted surface.

The minutes are showcased by a black rotating disc with a red indicator on the sapphire crystal on the top of the case, while the linear hour display is read off laterally, making it easy to read with a glance at the wrist.

The movement features a type of spring-driven carriage that drives the hour display visible on the side of the watch by means of a red-lacquered cursor moving beneath the metallised sapphire crystal every 60 minutes.

Time-setting is done via a screw-lock crown at 12 o’clock, with the Spacecraft timepiece finished with a black polyamide mesh strap.

The RJ-Romain Jerome Spacecraft watch is available for $33,400 in the limited edition of 99 pieces.
