The top Swiss luxury watchmakers RJ-Romain Jerome have unveiled their first ever pilot’s watch, a timepiece aptly named the Spacecraft. Facilitating access to innovative, contemporary and offbeat watch making, here’s an exceptional creation that offers an ultra-new way of reading time. This new timepiece features a complication with its own discreet charm, combined with a pure, restrained design.
Manuel Emch, CEO of RJ-Romain Jerome, chose to associate with two of the top names in the watch industry: Eric Giroud and Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. The three men pooled their ideas and their creativity to construct a unique timepiece. This 99-piece limited edition is priced at about 20,000 Swiss Francs (Approx. $21,719 USD).
Looking itself like some retro spaceship that fell to earth from the heavens, the watch features a linear hour display on the side, and a rotating dial on top revealing the minutes. This watch’s surface echoes the aesthetic of a spacecraft, with a black PVD-coated titanium case. The limited-edition Spacecraft model comprises a unique complication housed in a pure, restrained design.
