March 24, 2008 We’re not exactly sure what’s being celebrated with Geneva-based Romain Jerome’s series of watches with "Titanic-DNA" – they’re all very high-end watches integrating real steel from the Titanic and the Harland and Wolff shipyard where it was built. After all, the Titanic’s sinking was one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history with 1500 lost souls. The Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world at the time of its launching and was touted as both high tech and unsinkable, so its demise caused a massive adjustment in the public’s previous blind faith in new technology. Geneva-based ROMAIN JEROME caused quite a stir last year with the Basel World release of the first Titanic-DNA watch and a year on, with its DNA range of watches established, there are new models, ranging from diamond-encrusted through pink gold and titanium, to our favourite which is appropriately rusted.
