Romain Jerome Salutes Lady Liberty

Romain Jerome DNA collection is an intriguing assortment of history's footprints, the latest of which is a piece of Lady Liberty herself incorporated into its Liberty DNA timepieces.
Romain Jerome collaborated  with Liberty-Ellis Foundation and Gold Leaf Corporation who assisted Romain Jerome in the acquisition of tiny amounts of Lady Liberty herself.
This is the best  horological representation of the Statue of Liberty I have ever seen. The dial is Verdigris - the green pigment associated with the oxidized bronze green hue of Lady Liberty.  The weathered texture completes the look . Embedded in the dial are actual pieces from the Statue of Liberty.  A bronze guard attached to a bronze bezel hovers over the dial representing Lady Liberty's Crown. The 46mm wide case is crafted in bronze, which will patina in time due to the natural exposure to the elements and eventually resemble the Statue of Liberty.
  Within the case a RH001-A automatic movement capable of a 42 hour power reserve tracks hours and minutes. The Liberty Torch and Flame are emblazoned on the case back signifying the Universal Symbol of Freedom and Democracy - just in time for the fourth of July.  America's Independence day.

The Liberty DNA timepiece presented on a brown alligator strap  is limited to 125 pieces and retails for $14,900.00.

Happy July 4th!
