This Swiss brand sets itself apart in the domain of horology with two enduring qualities: A love for pop culture, and an unbridled sense of adventure. With the timepiece in question, it's the case of the latter. Working once again with renowned Swiss manufacture La Joux-Perret, RJ-Romain Jerome concocts a shining, new Moon Orbiter GMT that's better equipped than its predecessor.
The new automatic flying tourbillon and a jumping hour retrograde complication at 12 o'clock — backed by day/night capabilities told by the star and moon engraved disc — are not the only new additions to the masterpiece. Known for their showmanship, the Swiss adventurers have incorporated Moon SilverRJ — a combination of actual moon dust and low oxidisation silver — and a steel case infused with elements from the Apollo 11 spacecraft. Not all brawn and no brains, the timepiece is also furnished with a power reserve of 45 hours and a secure screw-lock crown — built for voyagers dreaming of the galaxies far and beyond.
The new Moon Orbiter GMT is produced in a limited edition batch of 25 pieces, and is available at The Hour Glass boutiques.
