To the Moon and Back: RJ Arraw 6919 Series Features Patented Moon-Phase, Apollo 11 Steel

You’ve likely been hearing and reading a lot about this year’s 50th anniversary of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing, and if you’re a watch aficionado (that’s why you’re here, right") that means you’ve also been reading and hearing a lot about Omega, maker of the first watch worn on the moon ? hopefully much of it directly from your trusty WatchTime team. However, there is another Swiss watch manufacturer ? much younger and of less historical renown than Omega ? that has also embraced the moon landing and its cultural significance in a very direct and personal way to produce a very noteworthy new collection of limited edition timepieces. That manufacturer is RJ, formerly known as Romain Jerome, and the watch series is the Arraw 6919 ? bearer of RJ’s first in-house movement with (appropriately) a patented moon-phase mechanism as well as an industry-first case material incorporating recovered steel from the Apollo 11 spacecraft.
The RJ Arraw 6919 in Rose Gold and Titanium
The Arraw collection (pronounced “Arrow”) was established as the flagship of the revamped, streamlined RJ line, which debuted under the leadership of CEO and veteran Hublot executive Marco Tedeschi, who joined the company in 2018. According to Tedeschi, Arraw is positioned as the stage for the brand to introduce new in-house movements, a departure from the previous Romain Jerome strategy of relying on outsourced movements and concentrating instead on unusual case materials and unconventional aesthetics. “The idea with Arraw is to integrate future manufacture movements,” Tedeschi told WatchTime, “but our strategy is not about creating, say, another chronograph because there are already very good chronograph movements on the market and there’s no added value for RJ to create its own. So we’d rather do small and eventually larger complications that are different from what we can purchase from suppliers.” The bezel insert is made of an all-new composite material combining acrylic glass with Apollo 11 spacecraft steel.
The 6919 models ? in titanium, rose gold, and ceramic cases, each version limited to 100 pieces ? offer both an original, mechanical complication and an intriguing new material that carries forward the historical “space” theme originally established in its “Moon Dust DNA” models circa 2009, which incorporated actual lunar dust particles in its dial and metal from various spacecraft in its case. The talking point here is an astronomically derived, three-dimensional moon-phase indicator, set and operated entirely via the crown, which makes a full 360º rotation every month. “The idea was to create something simple yet different, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and to do something involving the moon to mark the 10th anniversary of the Moon Dust DNA,” says Tedeschi. “The moon is the natural satellite of the earth, so we...
