A limited edition of only 25 pieces, the new Deep Blue Octopus from Romain-Jerome is a superb design centered around the sea creature. What was once merely a caseback embellishment — a black sprawling octopus — is now front and center on the dial, along with a wicked cool lume-set that brings the watch alive in the dark (see lume shot below). As with other Octopus models (like the Black Octopus I took with me to the Bahamas a couple years ago — hands on review here), the watch also sports a notched bezel made of rusted and stabilized steel infused with steel from the Titanic, although for this watch it has also been given a black PVD finish (which renders the use of rusted Titanic metal pointless, IMO), but the look does go along with the overall design.
I’d love to get my hands on one of these!

Here’s the aforementioned “lume shot.” The Octopus eyes as well as the cavities filled with Superluminova “blue emission” shine at night:
Oh, and its water resistant to 888 feet.
