Pilots created a bond with their aircraft during WWII, and to keep morale up during the war they would paint their planes’ noses. Nose art was typically a painting of a pin-up, inspired by the famous Vargas girls, or a shark mouth. This art was thought to bring luck and courage to the soldiers. The famous aircraft that inspired Romain Jerome’s Pin-up/Nose Art DNA watches was the “Pink Lady”. She was a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress that launched in January 1945. The Pink Lady served under the US army base in Great Britain. She flew on many missions and then after the war continued to fly all around the world and even debuted in a few movies!
Romain Jerome combines this historical reference with a charismatic design into its Pin-up/Nose Art DNA timepieces. The dials show off a camouflage pattern, with the sub-dials at 9 and 3 o’clock resembling a cockpit’s reading instruments. The case back has a beautiful and seductive burlesque pin-up painting peeking from underneath sapphire crystal. These works of art are equipped with calf leather straps that are sturdy and durable. These limited edition watches embody the adrenaline of a soldier and the design aesthetics of the war.
