10-Piece Bat-Signal Inspired Luxury Collector Set – The New Batman Watch
An ongoing partnership between Kross Studio and Warner Bros. Consumer Products expands further with a new Batman watch. Their latest collaboration features two new projects in celebration of the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures’ film “The Batman.” First is a new 10-piece, limited-numbered “The Batman” Collector set and a new series of “The Batman” – themed watch rolls.
The luxury collector set is available for $100,000 USD and includes “The Batman” Tourbillon watch and an illuminated Bat-Signal functional art piece. In addition, new “The Batman” movie releases in theaters internationally on March 2 and in the US on March 4, 2022.
The new Batman watch collection of watch rolls each sold separately for only $250 USD. Plus, they will feature four distinct representations that are inspired by iconic DC characters from the film: Batman (two editions), Selina Kyle (Catwoman), and The Riddler.
A Bat Signal for the Wrist
The talented Kross Studio team developed a wristwatch that embodies Batman. The Batman watch features dark styling, ultra-precise movement, and the Bat Signal representation famously used to summon the Super Hero. In addition, it is a canvas for a central tourbillon cage in the form of a Bat emblem.
The watch was created with a new version of Kross Studio’s in-house developed and produced caliber KS 7’000. The mechanical hand-wound 3 Hz caliber KS 7’001 has a 5-day power reserve. Placed atop the central tourbillon’s oversized cage, the miniature Bat-Signal’s louvered surface allows light to filter through. Plus it enables glimpses of the regulator below and makes one revolution per minute.
The new Batman timepiece presents a different reading of hours and minutes. The hour hand is affixed to a peripheral display mechanism orbiting 360° around the tourbillon. Plus, the minutes are displayed on a disk, making one revolution per hour. A domed sapphire crystal arcs over the dial in a low profile. Each luxury watch is hand-made and assembled on-site by Kross Studio in Gland, Switzerland.
Utility, Form, and Function
For Kross Studio, the timepiece design required an equal balance of ergonomic considerations and improved user experience. The unique D-ring crown, placed at 3 o’clock on the edge of the watch, maintains a low-profile. It ensures a more comfortable wear than a conventional crown. As a result, the luxury watch also improves performance with a faster, easier winding and time-setting experience.
The “The Batman” Tourbillon’s watch straps utilize an ingenious interchangeable strap system. Thus, it allows the removal and change of the strap with a simple ‘click’ of its quick-release button. Easily switch to one of the three included strap options. 1) a black calf leather strap embossed with the pattern of Batman’s armor. 2) a black rubber strap with black stitching. 3) a red rubber strap with red stitching. All straps are reinforced with a black rubber inlay for optimal durability and comfort.
Light Up the Night
The Bat Signal plays such a key role in “The Batman” Tourbillon. It is only fitting for Kross Studio to include a functional Bat Signal art piece as an integral element of each collector set. Each Batman timepiece delivers a functional Bat Signal that illuminates. Furthermore it immerses the collector into the universe of Gotham City and “The Batman”. Plus. it also hides a dedicated space on his backside to safely store The Batman tourbillon or any other watch.
In addition to the collector set, Kross Studio also unveils a collection of four functional collectibles. Each watch holder model is crafted of genuine tan vegetal leather and comes screen-printed with a character’s striking likeness. Kross Studio designed each Batman watch roll with unique accents and complementary colors. Thay are inspired by the film character, represented with screen prints and contrast stitching. Continuing, red for Batman editions, blue for the Selina Kyle (Catwoman) option, or green for The Riddler model.
Kross Studio erases the boundaries between art, pop culture, and high horology. They proudly present a full collection of high-performance collectible products, in collaboration with a major entertainment company.
