The 'Steampunk Chronograph' by Romain Jerome is a gorgeous timepiece inspired by the popular sci-fi sub-genre. Although the steampunk aesthetic takes its inspiration from elements like gears, mechanisms and other industrial paraphernalia from the Victorian era, this watch is an upscale and modern take on steampunk.

The SteamPunk Chronograph is a $16,000 watch constructed of metals like stainless steel and stabilized titanic, which makes the watch look like it is rusted. Although rust is not typically a desired effect on metal objects, it works perfectly on this steampunk-inspired watch.

The face also features exposed screws and gears that give the analogue watch a grittiness that is emblematic of steampunk style. This masculine watch by Jerome features a mix of numbers and textures which updates the steampunk aesthetic for contemporary consumers.
