Striking while the iron’s hot, Romain Jerome’s latest timepiece embraces the steampunk trend at the height of its popularity. Cleverly named the ‘Steampunk’ the watch appears to be part of the company’s Titanic DNA line since the oxidized bezel is made from steel from the actual wreckage of the ship, and materials supplied by the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast where the Titanic was built.
Like with the company’s previous timepieces there are also details throughout the watch tying it back to the Titanic like the tiny ship’s propeller located on the left side of the face. And once again Romain Jerome hasn’t posted any pricing info, though like with their original Titanic model the Steampunk will only be available in a limited run of 2,012 pieces since 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner.
