Avant-garde watch­maker Ro­main Jerome last year in­tro­duced a new ver­sion of its fu­tur­is­tic Moon Or­biter watch, ad­ding a GMT func­tion and a new round case. Crafted in steel and in­clud­ing metal from Nasa’s Apollo 11 space­craft, the Moon Or­biter GMT is de­signed with the same spring-loaded lug sys­tem as the orig­i­nal 2013 Moon Or­biter Tour­bil­lon. Though still rather mas­sive at 48 mil­lime­tres, the new ver­sion’s round case en­sures the piece is more com­forable to wear than its pre­de­ces­sor, which came with a rec­tan­gu­lar case mea­sur­ing 49mm x 45mm x 20mm. The watch’s main plate, which dou­bles as a sub-dial, is en­graved with an as­tral mo­tif, and on top is an X-shaped bridge, with a highly ar­chi­tec­tural fly­ing tour­bil­lon placed at 9 o’clock, and the time dial oc­cu­py­ing the 3 o’clock po­si­tion. four on a three-armed carousel sweep across the 60-minute scale to show the time in both dig­i­tal and ana­logue form.
