Titanic DNA Romain Jerome unaccessable as the ruins itself

These exquisite time pieces are probably the hardest watches to try and purchase. The craftsmanship and pure beauty of these pieces in person are exceptional. If you ever get a chance to see one of these pieces, take the time to see the detail and feel the substantial craftsmanship. Production this year will be around 700 pieces.

The rusted steel is created by an extraordinary fusion carried out at the Harland & Wolff shipyards in Belfast, where the Titanic was constructed. This fusion brings together the authentic steel of the shipwreck, which was resting on the ocean floor at a depth of 3,840 meters, and that of the modern liners still being built by the same company.

A tribute to the giant of the seas in an ultra-virile interpretation of the traditional chronograph. The bezel, made from the fusion of rusted steel from the liner and steel from the Irish shipyards where it was built, enhances the architecture of the multi-level dial. Coal from the hold of the shipwreck provides a variation of black finishes, satin-finished on the emblematic transversal cross and a snailed sun pattern for the counters. A veritable timekeeping instrument with an intense personality, a symbol of power and the extreme.
