Wear the Titanic on Your Wrist

Romain Jerome's marvelous watches with Titanic DNA. Below is The Octopus - Modus Operandi
On the back it features an octopus from the deep. Quite astounding. Named after the ocean giant in Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, there is an urban legend that an octopus attacked the titanic.

The rust look is derived from melting the Titanic's corroded steel! Yes! THE Titanic!
The ship that sunk back in April of 1912. You'll be wearing that piece of history on your wrist. 
Rust has been the enemy of watchmakers, except for this beauty. With this watch, the rust is essential. It gives the watch so much character! It is quite a sight, I must say. 
The water resistance of this watch is greater than 1.0 MPa (10 atm), the equivalent of 100m, or 330 ft. It is water resistant to 888 ft. Amazing! Plus it can handle seawater, no worries.
It has thick watch crystals and you can read it under water when there is little light with its illuminated markers and dials.
The number 8 is reflected in the watch because of the number of legs. 8 rivets on each crown, 8 screws on the case, and 8 screws on the back.

Above is the Steampunk Black Watch by Romain Jerome. This watch is my favorite Romain Jerome I have seen so far, for sure.
