RJ-Romain Jerome SPACE INVADERS® 40: Next Level

By Neharika Padala

Do you remember the 1980’s? Big hair, shoulder pads and of course – arcade fever! Inspired by this timeless  era, Romain Jerome has immortalized the icons of the 80’s with its Games-DNA collection and introduces the  “Next Level” to the Space Invaders® collection with a new 40 mm version of this generational timepiece.

In collaboration with TAITO Corporation (TAITO), RJ-Romain Jerome introduces for the first time, the icon of its Game-DNA collection in a 40mm case: the Space Invaders® 40.

This new addition is brought to you by popular  demand and increasing curiosity for these pixilated figures. It’s now possible for horological and video game wizzes
to create pairs, for him or for her, paying tribute to the 80’s era. Available in a black PVD-coated steel case, the dial is fitted with a complex three layered base. The first two layers are beadblasted following a “straight graining” process that gives the third layer a detail-oriented pixel finish. Finally, the Space Invaders® are meticulously machined one by one, lacquered by hand in either white or coloured cold enamel, depending on the model, before placing and fixing by hand each pixel figurine on the dial.

This novelty has inherited the highly distinctive case design of the Moon Invader 40 allowing the details of the watch to transport the wearer and escape his daily affairs. Inspired by Man’s conquest of Space, four functional ball-and-socket joints have been placed on the corners of the case, resembling the legs of NASA’s Lunar Excursion Model (LEM). These extremely sophisticated components are mounted on axes enabling the watch to adjust to all wrist sizes.

Embodying another tangible token of Space, a dedicated medallion made of Moon SilverRJ – a silver alloy with an extremely low oxidation rate incorporating Moon Dust – appears on the stellar-patterned back of the watch’s rubber strap, replicating the surface of the Moon.

Available in 78 pieces per model, all Space Invaders® aficionados will automatically get to the “Next Level” with this new addition to the Games-DNA collection! Hurry… Before this collection runs out!
