Giulio Romano – Emblem of Italy Caseback

by John Sealander  

From the multi-talented Renaissance painter who is the brand’s
namesake, to the Italian coat of arms on every caseback,

Giulio Romano timepieces are a celebration of Italy’s heritage.

Giulio Romano WatchesIt’s no surprise that that the enormously talented Mannerist painter Giulio Romano became the namesake for an exciting new collection of Italian timepieces. From their unique stainless steel crown with seven raised dots, to the Italian coat of arms engraved on each caseback, every Giulio Romano timepiece is a celebration of Italy’s rich cultural heritage.

Emblem of ItalyThe emblem of Italy, engraved on the back of each watch, represents the richness and diversity of Italy. The five-pointed star, or stellone d’italia, represents the protection provided by the army of the Italian Republic.

The gear in the center represents the Italian constitution that governs the republic of Italy and the willingness of the Italian people to work hard to achieve their goals. The oak and olive branches flanking this cogwheel represent the beautiful landscape of Italy and the productivity of the fertile land. When this emblem was first proposed in 1946 under the leadership of Alcide De Gasperi, it was put to a vote of the Italian people who chose the design themselves.

Italy uses this distinctive coat of arms to this day and it has become a source of pride to all Italians. To further celebrate its Italian roots, each Giulio Romano Collection is named after a different region in Italy and shows off a different aspect of Italian style and design.

Giulio Romano Rimini Collection

Piazza Cavour Rimini Italy


by John Sealander  

Home of Federico Fellini Provides the Inspiration for a
Dreamlike Watch that Would Have Delighted the Master

Giulio Romano WatchesYoung Federico FelliniWorld famous filmmaker Federico Fellini is known for his unique ability to bring dreams and memories to life. Childhood memories of his Rimini birthplace provided the inspiration for sequences in some of Fellini’s most famous films.

Picturesque Rimini on Italy’s Adriatic Sea Coast also inspired Giulio Romano to create one of the most alluring and dreamy ladies timepieces it has ever produced.

The Giulio Romano Rimini is simply spectacular. A lustrous mother-of-pearl dial has been specially molded to create raised three-dimensional numbers. Some models even feature imaginatively painted multi-colored numbers. The result is an artfully articulated dial that is rich with nuance and detail. A mineral glass crystal protects the unique looking dial. This beautiful three-hand creation features Giulio Romano’s signature studded crown with seven raised dots and is fitted with a thick mesh bracelet with a butterfly deployment buckle.

A precision Miyota 2035 quartz movement with a four-year battery life powers this playful fashion statement. The Rimini is cased in durable 316L stainless steel and is water resistant to 165 feet. The watch can also be obtained in IP plated rose gold and black versions.
