Romain Jerome Makes Watch for Sci-Fi’s

Romain Jerome has created a watch that will make any sci-fi lover squeal with delight. Named the “Spacecraft,” this watch will make you think Star Wars. Specifically Darth Vader. Spacecraft is a watch that screams vintage futuristic all at once, which is very hard to accomplish.

 

Spacecraft is a titanium watch that is coated with PVD.  It focuses on hard angles and flat lines to give it that space – feel. It is run with a self-winding movement that has so many different motions to it, it has yet to been seen. With retrograde hours, the watch moves laterally, linearly and even jumps! Why does it need so many movements? Because of the way the watch is ready. Spacecraft is not going to be a watch for someone who wants to-the-second accurate time. Jerome notes this himself. It is meant for style.

 

To tell the time on Spacecraft, you must first look at the side of the watch where the hours are located. The correct hour will be red, caused by a spring-driven carriage. Then go to the watch face where the minutes are located. It may be a little hectic, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t think twice about reading the watch. The entire watch was hand pieced and tied together with a black mesh strap.

 

If you are a fan of unique watches, or a Star Wars, space lover, Spacecraft is definitely the watch for you. It is going to be an extremely rare watch, however, with only ninety-nine created. The cost definitely mirrors the high craftsmanship at $33,400. But if you can afford it, this will be a piece everyone will constantly talk about. Tell time with style.

Gucci Watches 116 Signoria, Is It For You?

Gucci Watches 116 Signoria is Deeply Stylish

The Gucci name is one that exudes opulence and style.  Gucci watches, as well as their other designer luxury items have been the favorites of many a fashionista.  If you haven’t yet seen the Gucci Signoria watches, you are in for a treat.

The Gucci 116 Signoria Women’s Watch model YA116515 is one of their most unique looks, and one that you will either love or hate.  I say that, because it has a bold and different styling that will not be for everyone.  The Gucci 116 Signoria comes in several different finishes, but I much prefer the monochromatic look of the YA116515 version.  The dial is square and features a rich black color, which is a theme that runs through the rest of the watch’s look.  The movement is Swiss Quartz, so it will be extremely accurate and reliable.  This women’s timepiece comes with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and is crafted from strong stainless-steel.

Gucci watches 116 Signoria is a top quality timepiece that is water resistant to 99 feet.  Although this is a high quality watch, the real attraction will be the design of the bracelet.  Gucci watches has made this collection fashionable with their use of the black steel knotted link bracelet.  It’s one of those looks that has to suit your style, but if it does…it will turn into your signature piece.
