ROMAIN JEROME - Moon Dust-DNA

Authentic Moon dust as well as fragments of the Apollo XI, Soyuz and ISS spacecraft integrated into exceptional timepieces.


As part of its DNA of Famous Legends concept, featuring timepieces inspired by and created in tribute to the great legends of our times, the Maison Romain Jerome presents its second exclusive collection, entitled Moon Dust-DNA.

Legitimately proud of its Titanic-DNA collection dedicated to the world’s greatest maritime legend, Romain Jerome launches out into space in homage to the most fascinating human adventure of all: the conquest of space.

Moon Dust-DNA embodies this incredible odyssey and features its main protagonists. It honours the symbol of this headlong race, distinguished by confrontation as well as occasional collaboration between the American and Soviet superpowers, whose main aim was to reach the Moon.

The design of the Moon Dust-DNA collection is inspired by and incorporate the DNA heritage of the great players and major figures in the conquest of space. The materials composing the models in this collection incorporate authentic fragments from the aerospace universe such as moon dust as well as fragments of the Apollo XI and Soyuz space shuttles and the International Space Station (ISS).

Moon Dust-DNA features :
A lunar dial based on a mineral deposit including Moon dust;
A 46 mm steel and titanium case incorporating steel from the Apollo XI space shuttle;
Rusted steel paws including fragments of the Soyuz spacecraft; 
A strap composed of fibres from a spacesuit worn during the ISS mission*.

*Romain Jerome guarantees that the origin of each of these materials is duly certified by a legal document authenticated in Switzerland. Each piece in the Moon Dust-DNA collection will also be accompanied by a certificate from the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) saluting the approach of Romain Jerome and the tribute it is thereby rendering to the conquest of space.
