With these collections and series, such as the vintage video game series, Romain Jerome has cemented its name as one of the luxurious watch businesses' key players.
History of RJ Watches
RJ Watches was established in the year 2004 by Alain Bajulaz, who named the company after his two sons, hence the name Romain Jerome. At inception, RJ Watches started by manufacturing golf counter watches.
This was the main product of RJ Watches until 2006 when Yvan Arpa from Hublot took over as the CEO. The company then branched to other types of watches, such as the Titanic DNA, and this move allowed RJ to witness a massive growth in products and profits.
After Yvan Arpa left in 2009, RJ Watches came under the management of Manuel Emch, who was formerly at Jaquet Droz. Manuel Emch then continued steering the innovative and peculiar designs that RJ is known for today.
History of Romain Jerome Watches, Series, and Collections
Despite the continuous change in leadership faced by RJ Watches, the company has remained true to its founding concept, which is to recreate and replicate the DNA of legends and icons. While the company doesn't have a lot of history in watchmaking, it wants its customers to have a feel of historical relevance.
This is the reason why the watchmaker came up with the Titanic-DNA timepiece in 2007. The watch features some design aspects of the famous ocean liner, Titanic. After this came the Moon Dust-DNA in 2009, a timepiece that contained authentic moon dust and a fragment of the Apollo XI space shuttle. This timepiece was to commemorate the historic landing on the moon incident.
Romain Jerome also dabbled into the gaming and entertainment world, collaborating with industry leaders to produce Game Collections. The first game collection was unveiled in 2011, and it was a Space InvadersTM model featuring a Moon Invaders case. There was also a watch commemorating the 75th anniversary of the fictional hero, Batman, which was released in 2014 in collaboration with Warner Bros. A Spiderman Watch followed this timepiece in collaboration with Marvel in 2018.
In that same year, RJ released the ARRAW Marine collection. This collection of timepieces was the first signature collection of RJ. With this collection, RJ replicated the history of popular villains and Batman's enemies, Joker and Two-Face. In this same collection, the company celebrated the 50th anniversary of the historic moon landing with the Moon Phase ARRAW 6919.

RJ Delorean DNA Watch
This is one of the most popular timepieces produced by Romain Jerome. The watch is a product of a timeless collaboration between Romain Jerome and Delorean Motor Company. The purpose of this timepiece was to revive the legendary 1980 Delorean Sports Car.
While it remains debatable whether or not Romain Jerome and Delorean Motor Company actually went back in time on this particular timepiece, there is no doubt that the Delorean DNA Watch design did justice to this purpose. The watch features some accurate representation of the old car's design and element, powerful enough to inspire a sense of nostalgia in the sports car's fans.
The DeLorean DNA Watch features a 48mm stainless steel case with a vertically brushed stainless steel dial. The watch also bears the signatory cross strut, X, engraved onto the dial. The hour markers in the watch use a skeleton design, which is reminiscent of the dashboard of the DeLorean Sports car. Moreover, the three chronograph sub-dials of the watch also bears a resemblance to the car's design.
This DeLorean DNA watch uses an in-house Swiss Made RJ-001CH 23 jewel automatic mechanical movement, with a 42-hour power reserve and a chronograph function. The watch's back case shows an engraved DeLorean DMC-12 Car with car doors opened in a wing-like manner. This picture depicts the limited nature of the timepiece, as there are only 81 pieces of the timepiece.
Finally, the watch has a stitched strap featuring an upholstery black leather and grey anthracite material. If you are a collector or car enthusiast with a craving for the nostalgic feeling of a DeLorean Car, this timepiece is for you.
