It is also interesting to see a more subdued RJ watch that also focuses on the movement as much as the case. Often times, Romain Jerome would combine an existing case and movement with a special dial (such as for the PAC MAN watches) and call it a day. More and more, they are dedicating a rather large amount of effort to really limited production watches that are wholly different. I think that is one thing that really makes Romain Jerome unique, it isn’t just that they make limited editions only – a lot of brands do that – it is that so many of their watches are just so different looking.

There are three different versions of the Romain Jerome Skylab, two of which are steel and one is 18k rose gold mixed with PVD-coated black steel. What I really like is the strap. This is one of the first times I recall seeing a Romain Jerome watch with a fitted strap. It changes the look of the overall case on the wrist, and I think not having stitches on the strap is a benefit to the design.
