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.

Introducing Giulio Romano Termoli Collection

Termoli Castle, Termoli Italy


by John Sealander  

An Iconic Design Inspired by a City’s Historic Clock Tower

Giulio Romano WatchesPeople have lived in Termoli, Italy since pre-historic times. This beautiful city on Italy’s Adriatic Coast has been ruled by Romans, Normans, and the Hohenstaufen emperors, who built the iconic castle that remains as the town’s focal point today. High on the castle’s massive crenelated keep is a large clock that can be seen for miles around.

To commemorate Termoli’s historic castle and its iconic tower clock, Giulio Romano has come up with a strikingly massive design of its own. The stunning new Giulio Romano Termoli features a classic three-hand display that echoes the simple outline of the city’s famous clock. There is nothing old-fashioned about this massive 46mm timepiece however. Giulio Romano Termoli watches represent fashion-forward Italian design at its very best. From the dramatic raised Roman numbers on the chapter ring to the beautiful engraved Italian coat of arms on the screw down case back, this is a watch that can’t be ignored.
