Luxury watch brand Romain Jerome has gone celestial with the Moon Dust, which has authentic moon dust on its dial.
Celestial: The RJ watch uses moon dust.
The Swiss watch brand has a reputation for its outrageous creations. In 2008, it made a watch fashioned out of steel from the Titanic. “The idea was to have a piece of history on your wrist,” says Gurinder Sahni, managing director of Jot Impex, which has brought Romain Jerome to India.
The Moon Dust is a limited edition of 1,969 pieces (the year when the first manned spacecraft landed on the moon). Features include a black rubber or crocodile hornback strap, fibres of which are partly woven from an International Space Station (ISS) spacesuit. Each watch comes with a legal certified document authenticating the Moon Dust and a certificate from the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) which salutes Romain Jerome for the idea. The Moon Dust range is priced at Rs5.85 lakh and above.
Moon Dust is available at Jot Impex, Delhi, and Swiss Paradise Luxury Timepieces and Watches of Switzerland, Mumbai.
