Chegado(s) ao mercado - relógio RJ-Romain Jerome H9C-DNA, em conjunto com Harley Davidson "customizada"
O RJ-Romain Jerome H9C-DNA nasce da colaboração entre Manuel Emch, CEO da manufactura relojoeira e Danny Schneider, cuja empresa - a HardNine Choppers - "customiza" motos. Assim, temos uma Harley Davidson de 750 cc, modelo WLC, de 1943, feita para o Exército Canadiano, transformada em H9C-DNA. Os dois relógios e a moto são vendidos em conjunto.
Os relógios estão equipados com o calibre de carga manual RJ004-M, esqueletizado e com asas luminescentes, para aumentar o efeito na escuridão. Têm caixas de 44 mm, de aço revestido a PVD negro e lunetas de aço negro ou ouro vermelho. Vidro de safira na frente e no verso. Mostradores esqueletizados, com caveira de alumínio rodiado ou metal púrpura. Estanques até 30 metros. Limitados a 9 exemplares, na primeira versão, exemplar único a segunda. O preço é de 17.500 euros para a primeira e o conjunto moto (exemplar único, também pintado de púrpura) mais relógio exemplar único custava 110.000 francos suíços (mas já está vendido...). Restam, assim, nove motas e nove relógios.
Danny Schneider is the owner and founder of HardNine Choppers, a custom motorcycle garage in Switzerland. He launched his company in 2002 after a severe FMX accident that put an unexpected end to his career. He was known to be one of the pioneers in Swiss FMX and has now established himself as a one-of-a-kind custom motorcycle builder. Following his injuries, Danny Schneider chose to radically change professional paths and learnt how to weld and manually build motorbikes. At first this hard working young entrepreneur created bikes for the simple pleasure of building and riding them. However Danny had his first break when he built the D’MX bike that attracted over 21 international major bike magazines and gave him a pass to all the major shows, such as the “AMD World Championship of Bike Building”, where he finished 3rd in the modified Harley category, as well as the “Artistry of Iron Master builders Championship”. He was also the first European bike builder to ever be invited as a special guest to the “Yokohama Mooneyes Show” in Japan. Following his growing success, Roja-Film Production Company released a 90 minute documentary about the creation of the D´MX and Danny’s trip to Japan. The documentary was shown in movie theaters all over Switzerland and in parts of Europe. Over the past years Danny has built many exceptional pieces which have become even more successful than the original D´MX. After travelling all year around the globe and attending all the international bike shows, Danny still finds the time to ride his bikes and has also recently been spotted riding a dirt bike again !
