Here is RJ-Romain Jerome again stunning us with the 80 watches themed after the cult PAC-MAN, after the big success the Space Invaders watches achieved. Four different modes of 20 pieces each paying tribute to the flagship Eighties icon, RJ-Romain Jerome is bringing the famous yellow character back to life and of course, this project was in association with NAMCO BANDI Games. As usual, Romain Jerome is used a very sophisticated production process to create the characters and fruits on the PAC-MAN watch dial; each dial of the three levels is encrusted with a pixilated matrix which resulted in a fragile 3-dimensional view. Amongst the amazing models, the most featured is the Ghosts (Blinky-red, Pinky-pink, Inky-blue, and Clyde-Orange) and the two extra Cherries. The upper level features straight-grained edges while the lower two levels are bead-blasted. Built piece by piece, applied by hand and gem-set, they are subsequently lacquered with different colors or with black superluminova “green emission”, thus recreating actual game sequences. An official PAC-MAN logo is also placed near the 6 o’clock position.
The 46mm black PVD coated with polished and sandblasted surfaces case of this watch is inherited from the RJ Moon collection — an alloy of steel and fragments of Apollo 11. Designed pretty much like the legs of the lunar landing module in American lunar expeditions, the four ball-and-socket joints are placed on the corners of the case. When looking at the back of the watch, we will see a disc made of a low-oxidation silver fused with moon rocks; the RJ’s proprietary “Moon Silver” which produces the surface of the Moon. It is to be launched exclusively at the Colette store in Paris on September 3rd and then at September 10 at other Romain Jerome retailers pricing at $17,900.
