RJ-Romain Jerome Delorean-DNA Burnout

RJ-Romain Jerome Delorean-DNA Burnout

Thirty years ago the iconic DeLorean sports car left a significant trace for generations to come as well as on the road! On this special day of October 21st 2015, RJ-Romain Jerome pays tribute to the DeLorean DMC-12 by unveiling a new timepiece, the Delorean-DNA Burnout.

In order to attain maximum speed and reach the targeted date, the emblematic 80’s car acts as a Time Machine whilst spinning its wheels and hitting the brakes. This process is called a “burnout” and leaves a trace as a result of the fusion between the tire’s rubber and the asphalt.

The textured dial of the DeLorean-DNA Burnout was made from this exceptional fusion of materials and is housed in a 46 mm steel case. The timepiece also features a brushed steel bezel containing elements from the original bodywork of the DMC sports car and the small seconds counter recalling the car’s dashboard with bright orange indexes.

This new model is limited to only 30 pieces. The future is now, enjoy the present with the Delorean-DNA Burnout!
