As its name suggests, the Titanic-DNA collection by Romain Jerome is inspired by the legendary sunken ship. The men's watch line commemorates the 1912 incident with themed timepieces, its newest edition being the limited edition Steampunk Chrono Colour in multiple vibrant tones.
With its rough handmade finishes, the Steampunk Chrono Colour signifies extreme adventure and vigorous energy. Its name represents a fusion of the historical era of steam-powered engines and postmodernism. The aesthetics of the watch, with its alligator strap and contrasting colorful stitching, is an attempt at retrofuturism.
This collection uses the same authentic steel used in the production of ships. Specifically, the metal is from Harland & Wolff, the company that built the Titanic. This explains the watches' steep price of $16,000 USD.
