To mark the 100th anniversary of the launch of the Titanic, RJ-Romain Jerome pays tribute to this seagoing giant that inspired its very first collection, by creating two special limited series: Steampunk Auto 100th Anniversary and Steampunk Chrono 100th Anniversary. Housed in a 50 mm-diameter case featuring distinctive rough and raw finishes, the Steampunk models in the Titanic-DNA collection embody the ship’s sheer power. They feature a bezel in oxidised and then stabilized steel stemming from a fusion between metal from the legendary wreck lying 3,840 metres under, and that provided by the Harland & Wolff shipyards where the Titanic was built. For this anniversary edition, the mobile propellers appearing on the dial of the Steampunk and reminiscent of those on the legendary ship, have been oxidized and stabilized by the same process as that used for the bezels of Titanic-DNA watches.
