Introducing the Romain Jerome Skylab, the first RJ skeleton watch (with specs and price)

Romain-Jerome-Skylab1

The first skeleton wristwatch from Romain Jerome, the open-worked bridges of the Skylab are inspired by the lines of NASA’s first space station, which went into orbit 40 years ago.

Equipped with a open-worked movement from Concepto, the Romain Jerome Skylab is not just the brand’s first skeleton timepiece, it is also the slimmest wristwatch in the Romain Jerome line-up. The 44 mm case is based on the Titanic-DNA case as used in the Sailor’s Grave, but slimmed down, most obviously with the thinner bezel and lugs.

The hand-wound movement is linear in its layout – the barrel is at 12 o’clock and the balance wheel is at six, while the gear train and keyless works sit in between. On the back the distinctive three-armed winding click spring marks this out as a Concept movement.

Three versions are available – all steel, black PVD coated steel bezel and rose gold bezel – each of which is limited to 99 pieces. The retail prices are US$16,950 for both steel models, and US$19,950 for the rose gold. – SJX
