Romain Jerome & Taito's limited edition 78-piece arcade watch

The Swiss luxury watch brand Romain Jerome collaborates with Taito Corporation — the company that brought you Space Invaders — to present two limited edition watches paying tribute to the seminal arcade game released in the late 1970s. The Romain Jerome brand was born by the inspiration to pay “tribute to iconic legends of the last century,” and to do so incorporate materials from seminal moments in history for you to wear on your wrist. For instance metal stripped from the Titanic, dust from the Moon or ash which sprayed from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano are all incorporated into past Romain Jerome pieces. This time around, the Japanese software and programming giant Taito permitted the Swiss company to create the two 78-piece limited edition series that are distinguished by their dials. While one is a Super-LumiNova coated night view version, the other is a more colorful type, both featuring a Space Invaders battlefield that’s compiled of three layers of pixellated and shotpeened dies featuring hand-drawn file strokes in a 3D format. The 78 pieces are an ode to the year the game was released. The case is a black 46mm PVD stainless steel design with a Swiss Romain Jerome caliber RJ001-A movement.
