RJ-Romain Jerome Introduces The Skylab 48 Speed Metal Skulls


Romain Jerome Skylab 48 Speed Metal Skulls

Following on from the 80’s trend Skulls n’wheels and the playful interpretation of skulls, RJ-Romain Jerome launches a 9 pieces limited collection revolving around vanities and time passing.

This new timepiece incorporates most of the aesthetics and technical aspects of the Skylab 48 Speed Metal model, offering a strong contrast between the black PVD case and the steel claws and paws, respectively satin-brushed and polished.

But what really stands out is the newly added satin-brushed internal bezel with sneering skulls acting as indexes. Painted in cold enamel, the red skulls indicate the hours like any vanity that keeps reminding us of time passing.

The inclination of the internal bezel gives a certain perspective and leads the eyes towards the vital organ of the watch, the skeleton movement. This manual winding movement built on 3 levels was designed by RJ and allows to appreciate the mechanics, with the small seconds at 9 o’clock, the barrel at 12 o’clock, and the bal­ance wheel at 6 o’clock shown on the dial side.

A crocodile hornback strap completes this exclusive model with red stitching to recall the color of life flowing through the veins.

The Hour Glass is the exclusive retailer of  RJ-Romain Jerome in Singapore.
