After releasing two great sold out collections RJ-Romain Jerome is ready to launch the third collection paying tribute to the Icelandic volcano with the unpronounceable name. The Eyjafjallajökull-DNA – conveniently named “Volcano”
Introducing a 99 piece limited edition, the Eyjafjallajökull-DNA Burnt Lava is equipped with a robust 46mm case in black-PVD coated steel featuring a Swiss made mechanical self-winding movement enhanced with a striking structured bezel made of black PVD-coated steel and ash from the erupting volcano .
Like most of RJ-Romain Jerome timepieces the Lava also has the bezel made of rusted and stabilized steel, a process mastered by the brand to give the timepiece an overall dramatic feel. The well crafted dial reflects the intensity of the erupting Volcano and the burning lava .
Placed on top of an onyx baseplate, the genuine lava rock has been meticulously hand-worked by an artisan to reproduce the rock cracking under the lava pressure, a typical phenomenon characteristic of Icelandic Volcanos.
The dial does come alive thanks to the hand-painted lava in red and yellow cold enamel which seems to be trapped between the fissures. Watchbazar loved the plane shaped hands which fit the dial very appropriately.
RJ has selected an exclusive toad strap to finish off this beautiful textured timepiece coming from the bowels of the Earth.
