Romain Jerome explores a new style territory with the new Steampunk Urban Safari Collection. The first thing that catches your attention is the leopard print pattern. Romain Jerome has harked back upon the dandy style of the ’70s to create the Steampunk Urban Safari Collection. The SAPE movement of the Congo, referring to Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People, is the inspiration.
The first model of the collection is a real stand out and is limited to 25 pieces. The second watch is not for the faint-at-heart. It’s stylish, it’s exuberant, it’s everything you need to make a bold statement.
The leopard print covers the strap and the Roman numerals VI and XII. The imposing look of the watch is enhanced with the Steampunk Urban Safari Collection case. What’s unique about this watch is that the dial is integrated into the movement. The structured bezel in oxidised steel off-sets the strong architecture of the watch.
The emblematic Steampunk Urban Safari Collection case in 50mm adds to the new model’s imposing look. Unique to the Steampunk Urban Safari model, which features a self-winding Swiss Made mechanism, the dial is integrated into the movement.
The different finishes and elements of the movement, such as the circular graining, the hex nuts and the pistons, give a true impression of depth to the dial. The leopard print, hand painted by Swiss craftsman André Martinez, offers a striking contrast with the raw elements of the timepiece and in particular with the structured bezel, made of oxidised steel with a black PVD coating.
This Steampunk Urban Safari Collection model, is the essential accessory to face the urban jungle. We dare the bravest to be outrageous with a jewelled model, limited to 5 pieces only, enhanced with a bezel in red gold and set with 286 diamonds.
The SAPE movement lives on this summer in the new Romain Jerome Steampunk Urban Safari Collection.
Retail Price: $14,950 Usd for the black-PVD coated and $45,500 Usd for the Red Gold with diamonds set. For more info. on Romain Jerome, Click here.
