A Watch Made from Steel Recovered from the Titanic
Founded in 2004 in
Romain Jerome has quickly become one of the most unique luxury watch companies
on the market. Using authentic materials
recovered from historical landmarks, such as the Apollo 11 and Titanic, as well
as substances like volcanic lava and moon dust, Romain Jerome watchmakers
create highly emotional and rare timepieces.
Romain Jerome watchmakers refer to this concept as the “DNA of Famous
Legends.” Each piece derives its
inspiration from the air, earth, and sea, focusing on deep space and sea
explorations and utilizing rare authentic materials to create a piece of
wearable art and history. The
Titanic-DNA collection watches have bezels with a distinctive rusted appearance,
made with authentic steel from the Titanic, recovered from 3,840 meters below
sea level. In addition, the dials are
blackened with Titanic coal. Though a
controversial choice of materials, Romain Jerome refers to the Titanic-DNA
collection as homage watches. Let us
