  • Catalogue Essay

    Every Romain Jerome timepiece is a paragon of fine Haute Horlogerie and awe-inspiring creativity. The Spacecraft, launched in 2013, was jointly created by Manuel Emch, CEO of RJ, together with Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and Eric Giroud. Developed by these watchmaking masters, the Spacecraft epitomizes some of the most avant-gardist concepts in the history of horology.

    The complex movement is housed in an unconventional wedge-shaped case. With the edgy triangular design, the watch can easily grab the attention of its beholders. On the top of the case, a triangular crystal reveals the minutes with a black rotating disc, while the RJ logo is adjacent to the minute indicator. The hours, with the retrograde jumping hour complication, can be read on the front of the watch, just like with the MB&F HM5. Every 60 minutes the hour cursor instantly jumps one position forward, and returns to the start after 12:59.

    Reminiscent of aerospace vehicles shown in early science fiction movies, the Romain Jerome Spacecraft was the manufacturer’s tribute to everyone’s fanciful childhood imaginations.
