RJ, formerly known as Romain Jerome, is shutting down after losing its funding.
“Marco Tedeschi, CEO and the entire RJ team deeply regret this decision, which cuts 33 jobs and ends a great journey,” the company said.
Founded by Tedeschi when he was 33, the company was famous for its wild watches including Space Invaders and Pac-Man-themed pieces. The “Titanic DNA” series featured metal from the ill-fated pleasure vessel.

The Swiss watchmaker announced today that its financial backer, Alliance Investment Group SA, has decided not to continue supporting the business, leaving its board of directors with no choice than to shutter the business.
