Romain Jerome the Batman-DNA Gotham City

Marina Milojević | 03.31.16 | 06:58 PM

RJ-Romain Jerome and DC Entertainment are teaming up again for a new collectible timepiece – the Batman-DNA Gotham City. Same as its predecessor, the new Batman-inspired wristwatch is created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and inspired by The Dark Knight trilogy.

The latest iteration of the Batman-DNA pays tribute to the City of Gotham, a fictional American city, and a home of the famous Caped Crusader – Batman. The famous American Writer, Frank Miller, the author of The Dark Knight Returns, once metaphorically stated that Gotham City is nothing but New York at night. Perhaps that is why Romain Jerome decided to create a dial that comes to life at night. Thanks to a strong blue-emission SuperLuminova, the dial lightens up in low light conditions, giving even deeper perspective to a sophisticated dial built on three layers.

As explained in the official press release, the dial of the Batman-DNA Gotham City is sculpted to evoke the look of Gotham City’s buildings as seen from Batman’s perspective. The perspective of the city is the result of a complex engraving process. The bottom layer of the dial is coated with SuperLuminova, while Batman sits on top of it, as if he is watching over Gotham City. The scenery is embraced by black PVD-coated steel case, which measures 46mm in diameter. The case is topped with the facetted bezel, reminiscent of the Batmobile, sand-blasted or polished, and hand-finished to obtain Romain Jerome’s typical “rough” effect.

The case accommodates RJ001-A mechanical self-winding movement, which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The mechanism is built on 23 jewels, and it runs on 42-hour power reserve. The reverse side of the case reveals a special Batman medallion with the same rough finish. The solid case-back also protects the movement parts from the ingress of water, to up to 30 meters.

Romain Jerome the Batman-DNA Gotham City timepiece, reference number RJ.T.AU.WB.001.02, is available in a strictly limited edition comprising 75 pieces. The watch is paired with a black hornback crocodile strap with PVD-coated folding clasp. The suggested retail price for the latest Romain Jerome watch is CHF 15’950, EUR 17’950, or USD 19’500, depending on the market.
