RJ is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer based in Eysins, Switzerland.[1] Founded in 2004, the company designs and manufactures limited edition timepieces made with historical materials like fragments of the Apollo 11 spacecraft.[2] [3] The other big concept of the brand is the link it makes between popular culture and horology.[4] RJ collaborates with entertainment companies like Marvel to produce watches inspired by superheroes and famous DC comics villains.[5] [6]

Collections[edit]

Since its foundation, one of the company’s concepts that has prevailed is the inclusion of historic materials in its watches in what is referred to as the DNA collection.

There are also RJ's Collaboration watches inspired by famous comic superheroes like Batman and Spider-Man, or the most iconic video games of the 80s like Super Mario, Space Invaders and Pac-Man.[7][8]
