RJ-Romain Jerome presents an explosive cosmic collision

Bringing together the intrinsic DNA of its brand with a new case design, RJ-Romain Jerome makes two worlds collide with its new 1969 collection.
Continuing its conquest of the solar system and flirting once again with the infinity of space, RJ-Romain Jerome offers a new perspective of its Moon-DNA collection by presenting four new 1969 timepieces.

Introducing a retro, vintage design and a lighter 43mm case, the new 1969 timepieces reflect a nostalgic and bygone era of thin, geometrical clean lines combined with colourful, animated dials that will transport their owners into the mystical world of outer space.

On the first version, the avant-garde Maison shines light on the dial crafted with a new component, brought to us directly from outer-space and formed within the solar nebula disk billions of years ago : the Meteorite. Often referred to as "The crust of other worlds", the meteorite is the most solid layer of any extraterrestrial rock found on earth. RJ-Romain Jerome has chosen a type of meteorite much rarer than platinum or gold : Chondrites. This 1969 Meteorite satin-finished steel timepiece is tinted with man’s dreams of the great unknown as most Meteorites, which have impacted the earth, are thought to have originated from the Asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars.

Always using innovative materials, RJ-Romain Jerome has also found inspiration in Mother Earth’s treasures for the dials of three other 1969 timepieces. Commonly referred to as "SI" in the periodic table, the brand has used silicon on the dials of the 1969 models. Silicon, also known as Silicium represents 90% of the Earth’s crust and is commonly used, once highly purified, as a semiconductor in most electronics today as well as in manufactured movements.

Presented in blue, grey and brown, this natural translucent and very fragile element is coloured using a special PVD process giving the colours a textured finish highlighting each bold detail of this natural element.Echoing the 1969 meteorite, the blue and grey Silicon dials are also perfectly fitted in a satin-finished steel case whereas the infinity of space is featured with a brown dial integrated into a black PVD-coated steel case and bezel.

The small seconds counter applied at 9 o’clock onto every 1969 dial replicates, the visor used by the astronauts to guide the LEM safely onto the surface of the moon. The crown holds, on its extremity, prints left on the moon by the landing pads of the lunar module. Furthermore the counter and the cut-out minute and second hand’s tips have been enhanced with Superluminova, emitting an electric blue luminescence in the dark. Other interesting details are the paws that secure the bezel and represent the emblematic X shape featured on all RJ-Romain Jerome timepieces. The case backs are textured with a grainy stellar pattern and decorated with a medallion made from RJ’s Moon SilverRJ* reproducing the lunar surface.

By using cutting edge materials RJ-Romain Jerome highlights its recognizable design codes. The new case size and use of cosmic elements reflect the brands commitment to the conquest of space and to its continuous homage to contemporary legends. The new 1969 is a cosmic collision between man’s dream of other worlds and true watchmaking precision.
