Some of us spent the idle hours of our childhood with a Meccano set (which produced quite a few watchmakers), others with a first-generation Game Boy. Manuel Emch is in the latter category, and he admits, “I played for hours as my addiction grew stronger with time.” Now the boss of Romain Jerome, he pays horological tribute to the iconic game of Tetris. Translated into combinations of four aluminium Clous de Paris (a first), the distinctive tiles known as Tetrominos form a colourful gaming sequence against a dial engraved with ‘bricks’, giving a vintage and industrial look. This visually striking graphic interface is set against a Moon Invader case in black PVD-coated titanium. Limited edition of 84 ‘Lines’, a reference to 1984, when Tetris was created.
