Leopard print and diamonds… Romain Jerome goes all-out exuberance for the first two watches in the new Steampunk Urban Safari collection, a style inspired by the 1970s SAPE movement.

In a nod to the 70’s style and la SAPE – a dandy-esque fashion movement originating in the Congo which stands for the “Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People” – RJ-Romain Jerome pays tribute to a provocative fashion. Exuberance is key, expressed here through a roaring leopard print pattern which covers both the strap and the Roman numerals VI and XII. The emblematic Steampunk case in 50mm adds to the new model’s imposing look.

Unique to the Steampunk model, which features a self-winding Swiss Made mechanism, the dial is integrated into the movement. The different finishes and elements of the movement, such as the circular graining, the hex nuts and the pistons, give a true impression of depth to the dial. The leopard print, hand painted by Swiss craftsman André Martinez, offers a striking contrast with the raw elements of the timepiece and in particular with the structured bezel, made of oxidised steel with a black PVD coating. This first model, limited to 25 pieces, is the essential accessory to face the urban jungle. We dare the bravest to be outrageous with a jewelled model, limited to 5 pieces only, enhanced with a bezel in red gold and set with 286 diamonds.
