MJJ’s limited edition BLACKOUT collection honours iconic watches with state-of-the-art, durable upgrades that rewrite the expectations of luxury and express your unique and unapologetically bold nature with effortless style.
MJJ blackout COLLECTION
The collection utilises industry-leading DLC coating technology that fuses with the molecules of your watch. Armouring it with a striking, deep black scratch-resistant shield and military-grade, stealth style enhancement.
MJJ’s DNA runs through every bespoke dial and customised watch in our BLACKOUT collection. From concept to design, creation to quality control, and delivery to wear, each step is completed to the highest standards, worthy of MJJ MADE status.
THE LATEST DROP
This newcomer, known as the Daytona Ghost, has fast become the flag bearer of MJJ’s BLACKOUT collection. Thanks to the stripped back, covert-style design of the MJJ MADE dial that highlights its bold character, without compromising its Daytona spirit. This bespoke dial was designed in-house and inspired by the world-leading military tank CV9012 - dubbed the Ghost by the media. For its ability to mimic and project the thermal energy and images of surrounding objects and landscapes, rendering itself invisible to enemies.
MJJ'S TOP PICK
The Submariner BLACKOUT has become the pièce de résistance of our debut BLACKOUT collection Black By Popular Demand. The sterling silver Oyster bracelet, clasp, shoulders and case are treated with MJJ’s pioneering DLC coating technology - A ‘diamond-like-carbon’ coating that wraps the watch in a deep black protective case which enhances the scratch resistance. While the customised dial screams MJJ BLACKOUT spirit without watering down the Submariner character, for a fusion of true perfection.
What is DLC?
DLC is a “Diamond Like Carbon” coating. Used in the Military, Formula 1 racing, and even NASA engineering.
As is suggested in the name, DLC coating shares numerous properties with diamonds. This coating is favoured for its high surface durability and low friction nature, strengthening the scratch resistance and comfort of a watch.
How long will it take to BLACKOUT my watch. From order to delivery?
We provide a general estimate of 8-12 weeks, from the placement of your order to receipt of delivery.
This is due to the several key stages in the creation of a BLACKOUT watch.
Will my BLACKOUT watch come with a warranty?
Watches from our Black By Popular Demand and Black With A Vengeance collections are protected by a 5 year MJJ Warranty.
Pre-owned watches which have undergone the DLC coating process will be covered by an MJJ Warranty of 2 years, or we will match the original manufacturer's warranty - whichever covers you for the longest period. All pre-owned watches on our website will have this status included on the product page.
Why we provide an MJJ Warranty:
When a watch is customised, the original manufacturer's warranty becomes invalid - Until the customisation is reversed (and yes everything is reversible!). But, why would you want to reverse a customisation? So, we provide a warranty that covers you because we believe that luxury should be tailored to you as an individual and customisations are the perfect way to do this.
Daily wear and lack of care is not covered: One of the reasons we love DLC coating is because it boasts superior scratch resistance. However, much like how a Rolex warranty won't protect you for scratching and denting the material, in the same way our warranty will not cover any damage caused by accidents or lack of care.
How long does the DLC coating last and can it be repaired or reversed?
We pride ourselves on being industry-leaders, and this extends to the customisation methods we practice.
The DLC method we have developed is second-to-none: Difficult to damage but easy to repair, and entirely reversible. So it lasts as long as you want it to.
Does DLC affect the mechanics of my watch?
Not at all.
Your watch is dismantled by our watchmakers and only the casing and bracelet are DLC coated.
The remaining parts of your watch (such as the movement) are placed in a dust free, safe storage environment for this time. Once the coating has been completed, your watch is rebuilt, by hand, and undergoes thorough quality checks.
Can I send MJJ my own watch to be DLC coated?
Yes, provided it is in a good enough condition.
Any minor imperfections or scratches will firstly need to be corrected by our specialists, or they will show through the coating. Then, the process is carried out as normal.
Give us a call, send us an email, or message one of our social accounts to enquire about this process.
Can I swap the strap of my BLACKOUT watch?
When will my BLACKOUT need servicing and can I send it to MJJ for this?
We suggest that you service your watch every 3 to 5 years.
For more information regarding watch servicing, or to book your watch in for a service, please call us on 0330 124 3591.
Are BLACKOUT watches water resistant?
The DLC process does not affect the original water resistance of the watch.
You can find information regarding the water resistance of your watch either online or in the manual.
The only time a Blackout would not be waterproof is if you were to send a vintage watch that had lost its watertight seal. But this would be flagged up by our specialist before the process began and you would be given the choice to continue or abort mission.
Will my BLACKOUT come with the original manufacturer’s paper and box?
Yes. We use sourced, unworn watches to complete our BLACKOUT collections, and the original papers will be included with the delivery of your watch.
The only time this may not be the case is if you choose a pre-owned BLACKOUT watch, or a pre-owned watch that has been customised with a DLC coating. In which case, the status will be displayed on the product page and the box and papers confirmed in the watch specs.
I want to Blackout a watch that isn’t included in MJJ’s BLACKOUT collections. Will MJJ do this?
We love customising watches of all shapes and size. You can either send a watch in to us, or we can try to source any watch you’re after. Just get in touch and we’ll get straight on it.
Can I add further customisations to my BLACKOUT watch?
Whether you're wanting to create something entirely customised to you, or just add a few little personal touches, we’d love to customise your BLACKOUT watch.
Call us on 0330 124 3591 (9-5:30pm, Mon-Fri), email us, or drop us a message on social media to discuss the exciting and unlimited options.
