Celebrating the yearly holiday of Mexican Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos, a celebration for praying and remembering those who have died, Swiss luxury Watch Company RJ-Romain Jerome has unveiled a new timepiece known as RJ-Roman Jerome Día de los Muertos.
The limited edition timepiece is available in two versions: one with a skull on the forehead and other without the skull. The dial of the watch is decorated with Calaveras (sugar skulls) with seven colored handcrafted appliqués adorned in the champlevé technique.
According to Mexican people seven colors of appliqués represent the seven circles through which the souls of the dead must pass so they can rest in peace. The watch will come in 46 mm diameter PVD black coated steel cases, black ceramic bezel and a dial with brand’s signature X-shape engraving along with a RJ logo.
Water resistant up to 30 meters, the timepiece comes with a black Hornback alligator strap and a Día de los Muertos medallion engraved at the back. Each version of the limited edition RJ-Romain Jerome Día de los Muertos watch is limited to 25 pieces with an asking price of $15,900 for every single piece.
