Those who grew up in the 80s - 90s will remember our electronic game consoles fondly. And among those classic nostalgic games was Tetris, where you had to manoeuvre the continuous flow of falling blocks of different shapes (called Tetriminos) to form a complete horizontal or vertical line, thus eliminating it from the screen. Tetris was designed by Russian computer engineer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984. To celebrate this iconic game, luxury Swiss watchmaker RJ Romain Jerome, together with The Tetris Company LLC, released the RJ Romain Jerome Tetris DNA Watch in August 2015, as part of the RJ Romain Jerome Collaborations - Generational Icons watch line.

Set within the RJ Romain Jerome Moon Invader black PVD-coated titanium case with black rubber strap, the hand-brushed watch dial contains a strikingly colourful Tetris game screen in session. Each Tetrimino block is crafted from a combination of 4 "Clou de Paris" colored anodized aluminum, and individually set by hand. This gives the RJ Romain Jerome Tetris DNA Watch a visually appealing 3-dimensional effect.

A custom made Tetris medallion is fitted on the case back of the RJ Romain Jerome Tetris DNA Watch, inscribed with "84 Lines", which points to the number of watches from this limited edition series (84 pieces were made), as well as the year the Tetris game was released, in 1984. Water resistant up to 30 meters, the RJ Romain Jerome Tetris DNA Watch can be suitable for everyday use, and it's also easy to tell time.

Overall, the RJ Romain Jerome Tetris DNA Watch is a showcase of artistic creativity, more so than mechanical genius, though it's a fine limited edition specimen of a watch. A suitable addition to the RJ Romain Jerome Collaborations - Generational Icons watch line, this watch looks suitable for everyday use, due to its rather durable watch case.
