Moon Dust-DNA Watches from Maison Romaine Jerome
Authentic Moon dust, fragments of the Apollo XI and Soyuz spacecraft, as well as elements from the International Space Station (the strap is made from an astronaut's suit that has actually been on a space mission) have been integrated into the newest collection of exceptional timepieces from Maison Romain Jerome.
As part of its DNA of Famous Legends concept, featuring timepieces inspired by and created in tribute to the great legends of our times, the Maison Romain Jerome presents its second exclusive collection, entitled Moon Dust-DNA. Legitimately proud of its Titanic-DNA collection dedicated to the world's greatest maritime legend, Romain Jerome launches out into space in homage to the most fascinating human adventure of all: the conquest of space.
The models vary, including brown or black faces that have mineral and moon dust depoits, rose gold or white gold and several various bezel accents:
The design of the Moon Dust-DNA collection is inspired by and incorporates the DNA heritage of the great players and major figures in the conquest of space. The materials composing the models in this collection incorporate authentic fragments from the aerospace universe such as moon dust as well as fragments of the Apollo XI and Soyuz spacecraft and the International Space Station (ISS).
