The ‘Space Invaders’ Watch.
Just a few months ago Romain Jerome announced a licensing deal authorizing the manufacture of a Space Invaders-themed timepieces–and now they have arrived. In a nod to 1980’s pop culture, Romain Jerome has introduced two 78-piece limited edition watches featuring the iconic Space Invaders characters on the dial. Taito Corp. created Space Invaders in 1978 and is also known as the developer of Arkanoid, another popular favorite video game from these times.
The two 78-piece limited series of the RJ-Romain Jerome Space Invader watches are distinguished by their dial. The latter is composed of three layers of pixelated and shotpeened dies featuring hand-drawn file strokes. The 3.5 mm-sized Space Invaders are lacquered in different colours (“day” version) or coated with Superluminova (“night” version), each individually machined and hand-applied.
