Manuel Emch, CEO of Romain Jerome since 2009, has a great appreciation for contemporary art.
John M. Armleder received his inspiration for the creation of the skull motif from the Amerindian culture.
Manuel Emch, the CEO of RJ-Romain Jerome, is a devoted collector of modern art, and explained, "I have wanted to link my passions for contemporary art and watchmaking for some time now, and apply this idea of art as a unique item or limited edition to a watch ...for me it was important to work with a Swiss artist because of the company's origins, and my admiration for John M Armleder's work and his role as a model for young artists meant that I didn't have to look for long."

No doubt about it John Armleder is a constant example and role model of avant garde creations and a wellspring of intriguingly unique perceptions of space. His creations are not isolated from the environment in which they exist, but command the space while embracing its unique geometry.
