DC Inspired x Wonder Woman Tourbillon Watch by Kross Studio

The new Kross Studio x Wonder Woman tourbillon watch was created in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and DC. DC’s Wonder Woman is a cinimatic icon. Her unique depth of character has inspired fans all around the world. As a fitting tribute to Wonder Woman’s global impact, Kross Studio has designed a complex and powerful watch. Hence, it underlines her icon status as an invincible fighter and seeker of justice.

The custom-commissioned, one-of-a-kind Kross Studio x Wonder Woman timepiece stands as a testament to Kross Studio’s daring creativity and manufacturing prowess. The Swiss luxury watch team has agile skill and creates custom designs for the most discerning collectors and enthusiasts.

Wonder Woman Movie Collection

Attractive actor Gal Gadot plays the role of Diana Prince in the Wonder Woman movie series. The first movie titled “Wonder Woman” hit theaters in May of 2017. Featuring an Amazon princess who confronts the forces of evil and bring an end to human conflict, during World War One. The second movie – 1984 came out in December of 2020. First, a botched store robbery puts Wonder Woman in a global battle against a powerful and mysterious ancient force. But that battle puts her special powers in jeopardy.

A Unique and Exceptional Superhero Watch

To produce this exceptional watch piece that embodies the superheroine, Kross Studio developed an ultra-complex new casing process. It unites the watch’s dial and movement. For example, Kross Studio engineers turned to the brand’s own central tourbillon manufacture movement to begin. Yes, the integration of the dial required a new design, inspiring a new version of the caliber KS’7000. As a result, the dial and the movement follow the curve of the sapphire crystal across its entire diameter.

Moreover, the Studio did not top the central tourbillon cage with a decorative element. Rather, it integrates Wonder Woman’s iconic emblem as an integral part of the dial. It is found above the tourbillon cage. For its part, the tourbillon cage benefits from a new design with an upper cage bridge symbolizing the Kross Studio cross.

One-of-a-kind Time Reading

Fittingly, the Kross Studio x Wonder Woman watch also presents a unique method of reading the hours and minutes. The hour hand, represents Wonder Woman’s sword. It attaches to the peripheral display mechanism in 360° orbit around the tourbillon. The superheroine’s tiara points to her shield. In turn, it reveals the disc displaying the minutes over a range of 15 minutes at 12 o’clock. Finally, the hour markers on the flange are in the shape of stars, a potent symbol of Wonder Woman.

A Stunning and Vibrant, Luxury Timepiece

The circular satin-brushed grade 5 titanium case has a design with depth and brilliance. For example, the flange and the minute disc are treated in blue pvd to the sandblasted and polished central applique in 3N gold color. The final touches go even further. Using 5-axis CNC machining techniques and hand-crafted finishes have enabled Kross Studio technicians and designers to render elements of the Wonder Woman central tourbillon watch in three dimensions.

The Kross Studio x Wonder Woman watch comes with three straps. They are easily interchangeable thanks to the ingenious quick-change strap system. One is crafted of blue calf leather strap and the second is red alligator. Lastly, the third strap comes in anthracite grey goat leather.

New Classics Carree Automatic Watches from Frederique Constant

Luxury watch brand Frederique Constant introduces three new variations of the Classics Carree Automatic watch collection.  Going back to its original era and the roaring twenties, the new watches emerge with a stylistic audacity.  Yes, the resulting imprint is still perceptible.

The new Classics Carree Automatic luxury watch collection is very refined.  The stunning rose gold-plated or steel timepieces rely on a minimalist style. They include baton indexes, dauphine hands and date. In addition, a dial with a subtle guilloché pattern gives the Classics Carrée Automatic a rare elegance for aesthete collectors.

Classics Carree Automatic

The new Classics Carree Automatic watches from Frederique Constant are available in three versions. Each is powered by the FC-303 caliber offering 38 hours of power reserve. The caliber is clearly visible through the sapphire caseback. Continuing, the most sober and classic come with a steel case, silver dial and black leather strap. The most modern comes in the same case with a blue dial on a matching bracelet in the same tone. It’s topstitched in blue. The most chic and precious prefers a pink gold-plated case with shared indexes and hands, on a brown strap.

First launched in 2003, the Classics Carree Automatic is evolving again and significantly. First, a major change is the Heart Beat opening closes. Plus, the housing is the well-kept secret of the Swiss Made mechanism of the timepiece. Hence, this is how the face of a new, much more streamlined dial emerges. For example, the large Roman numerals give way to applied indexes, doubled at noon. The style is timeless and much closer to the aesthetic canons of the 20s.

The date window at 6 o’clock reproduces the rectangular line of the case. Therefore, it is dressed in a frame of the same finish as the latter, also shared by the indexes.

Luxury watch brand Frederique Constant introduces three new variations of the Classics Carrée Automatic watch collection.

You will find in the center of the dial, the most refined finishes. First, a rectangle with the exact proportions of the 30.4 x 33.3 mm case. It’s closed by a “railway” type timer, typical of the 1920s and the Art Deco movement that ran through them. Next, a very fine grooving dresses it. As a result, it offers a sole gaze of its owner.

This subtlety makes it possible to offer a better contrast to the set of three hands. Of course, the hours and minutes are shaped in the Dauphine style. Thus, a geometry is also characteristic of the past century. This simple, refined shape allows the time to be read perfectly in all circumstances. This is due to two facets. Each is oriented at two divergent angles. Therefore, at least one of the two always captures the light. Brillant design!

Arnold & Son Reveals the Luna Magna Ultimate II Luxury Watch

Luxury watch brand Arnold & Son introduces the Luna Magna Ultimate II luxury watch. This stunning, high jewelry moonphase timepiece features Lagoon-blue Paraiba Tourmaline and a diamond moon. The blue-green glow of the Paraíba tourmaline is the cornerstone of an exceptional new creation by Arnold & Son. The new watch was introduced to the world at last month’s Geneva Watch Days event.

Arnold & Son is named after John Arnold, an English watchmaker of the 18th century. Hence, the legendary watchmaker company was recognized for his ingenuity and work on marine chronometers. Arnold & Son continues his legacy by exploring contemporary ways to interpret traditional watch craftsmanship. All its watches are designed and manufactured in La Chaux-de-Fonds, located in the cradle of the Swiss watchmaking industry

Luna Magna Ultimate II

With this launch, Arnold & Son releases a new high-jewelry version of its beloved three-dimensional moon model. Above and beyond the technical prowess of including a 12 mm lunar sphere into a watch, the piece features superlative gem-setting. From pavé to invisible and channel setting, Arnold & Son draws on watchmaking savoir-faire of the highest level. Thus, the end result is the limited production of eight Luna Magna Ultimate II timepieces.

The Luna Magna Ultimate II is adorned with PVD-treated ruthenium crystals. The dial adopts the same shade as the Paraíba and is encircled by baguette-cut diamonds. As one of the rarest and most precious gemstones, the pavé-sets on the three-dimensional astronomical moon.

The 44 mm diameter case is crafted from 18K white gold and is studded with no fewer than 7.62 ct of exceptional-quality diamonds. Also, is the extraordinary color of the Paraíba tourmaline. It is a rare and much sought-after stone. Therefore, the finishing touch on this exotic and refined piece is the blue-green tones bordering on turquoise.

Arnold & Son introduces the Luna Magna Ultimate II Luxury Watch

A Precious Lagoon

A fine ring surrounds the new Luna Magna Ultimate II watch. It is formed of 112 baguette-cut diamonds totaling 5.90 ct. They overhang the flat surface of the bezel, appearing as if simply placed upon it, floating over its edge. Thus, it allows light to pass through them like an open prism. This is known as an “invisible” setting, generating unique sparkle. Continuing, its glittering appearance is due to millions of pure ruthenium crystals.

The extremely hard metal is found in platinum mines. This is due to being present in the same ore. However, ruthenium is much rarer than platinum. Hence, for the Luna Magna Ultimate II, the ruthenium is reformed into crystals and dyed using complex processes. As a result, it is regularly found on Arnold & Son’s timepieces and is unique in the watchmaking world.

A Tourmaline Night

A traditional dial is located at 12 o’clock. It is marked with 12 signature Arnold & Son Roman numerals. For example, this off-center sub-dial owes its pristine, slight milky white hue to opal. Underneath the time display, Luna Magna’s three-dimensional moon takes on a new appearance. Therefore, the white gold globe is entirely pavé-set. It is split into 161 brilliant-cut diamonds. This represents the illuminated side of the moon. Lastly, it’s the same number of Paraíba tourmalines for the portion in shadow.

The Life of Luxury has access to all the major luxury watch brands from around the world.  We offer the best new and pre-owned luxury watches. Please contact us to assist with your next luxury timepiece purchase.

This limited edition of 18 pieces is housed within a sharp new 42.5 mm diameter case in carbon composite and red gold. The Angelus sports watch with a flying tourbillon features a A-250 caliber. Thus, it gives the luxury watch a three-dimensional skeletonized look. In addition, the array of bridges in relief, offer a graphic arrangement.

Meanwhile, the A-250 skeletonized flying tourbillon caliber is surrounded by an ultra-rigid and ultralight carbon composite container. It is held within an 18K 5N red gold case middle. Alos, it reveals another kind of skeletonization. The Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon comes with a black ballistic-style rubber strap. It features an interchangeable system and red gold and titanium folding clasp.

Depth

The Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon has no dial. Although it does have a flange. Thus, it marks the transition between bezel and watch interior. It then graduates with sets of five increments. For example, each is separated by three-dimensional white gold hour-markers. Thes are filled with a luminescent substance. Because the flange is level with the bezel, it creates a sunken effect. As a result, it accentuates the feeling of depth in the A-250 calibre.

Contrast

Star Wars Fans Rejoice – Boba Fett Inspired Tourbillon Luxury Watch

Kross Studio releases an amazing Boba Fett Collector Set. This watch collection is inspired by the legendary Star Wars bounty hunter. Each watch in the 10 limited-edition set includes a numbered Boba Fett-inspired tourbillon Watch. Plus, you get a Boba Fett Starship-inspired watch display.

Boba Fett is one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars galaxy. The Kross Studio creation is a result of a collaboration with Lucasfilm. The Swiss design studio is proud to reveal a new and limited edition of ten Boba Fett-inspired collector sets. Therefore, each is complete with a numbered, manual wound Boba Fett-inspired central Tourbillon timepiece and a watch display by EFX. Both inspired by the iconic Boba Fett starship.

A Timepiece for the Galaxys Most Famous Bounty Hunter

Kross Studio showcases a mechanical complication within a 45mm grade 5 titanium case. In addition, it’s coated with chocolate PVD. Also, Kross Studio engineers undertook the challenge of manufacturing a miniature Boba Fett starship on its landing platform – atop the tourbillons cage.

Immaculate Craftsmanship and Detail Mirror Boba Fett’s Highly Equipped Starship

Each Boba Fett watch set is composed of eight pieces. Each miniature tourbillon resembles Boba Fett’s firespray starship. They are meticulously engraved and hand painted to mimic the weathered appearance of Boba Fett’s ship. Hence, how they appear in Bespin at Cloud City, in the Star Wars film saga. Therefore, the level of detail is incredible. Thus, it highlights the unique savoir-faire perpetuated by artisans in Switzerland. Interestingly, it took 90 hours to make each of the ten pieces.

Reading Time

Kross Studio has employs a unique peripheral format for reading the hours and minutes. View them through a planetary gear system that orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon. In addition, a 12-factor gear ratio allows the planetary minutes system to empower the progression of the hours. Thus, in order to optimize the movement’s efficiency as much as possible, the hour and minute display system is fixed on two very wide and high-precision ball bearings. Plus, the hour hand is inspired by Boba Fett’s jetpack and the minute hand by its rocket, two iconic items that the bounty hunter carries permanently.

No Visible Crown

The lack of a visible crown means case’s perfect symmetry can be seen. This is due to ingenuous Kross Studio D-ring crown system. As a result, the crown is on the case back. Plus, the barrel’s mainspring is wound by lifting the D-ring on the case back. This impressive timepiece features a maximum power reserve of five days. Time-setting is just as simple.

The clarity and symmetry of the Boba Fett-inspired Tourbillon dial belies the complexity of its manual-wound central tourbillon movement. It is composed of 220 parts. Lastly, each of the ten numbered timepieces was designed and assembled within the Kross Studio atelier in Gland, Switzerland.

Please contact us to purchase the Limited Edition Collector Set composed of the Boba Fett Tourbillon watch and Boba Fett’s spaceship watch display. Price – $120,000 USD

It is available with a steel bracelet or a blue rubber strap. In addition, the Nebula 41.5 Steel radiates cool and intense elegance.

Two-tone

The Nebula 41.5 Steel is fitted with either a three-link steel bracelet or a ballistic-type rubber strap with a woven-look surface. The two-tone aesthetic adorns the interior and exterior, the substance of the watch and the details.

The A&S5201 calibre was conceived as a skeleton mechanism instead of being modified by removing material. The result is a completely clear and legible display on both sides. For instance, it presents a total power reserve of 90 hours. Thus requires it is to be hand-wound every three-and-a-half days. At 4 mm thick, the calibre contributes to the piece’s overall slimness. The Nebula 41.5 Steel measures 8.73 mm thick, making it a natural member of the ultra-thin category.

Nebula 41.5 Steel Watch by Arnold & Son

Inside and out

The A&S5201 calibre is made for this piece and brings all of its character. It is set apart by its skeletonization and almost perfect symmetry. The traditional shape of its bridges harks back to John Arnold’s chronometers. Hence, the openworked structure accentuates the feeling of lightness in a very mechanistic design.

The name Nebula is a reference to the giant cloud of dust and gas in space. Some nebulas emerge from the gas and dust expelled when a dying star, like a supernova, explodes. The seven bridges on the dial side of this luxury timepiece radiate from the center outwards. As a result, it gives this sculptural movement the impression of a cosmic explosion.

High altitude

The A&S5201 calibre has new blue coloring. The balance wheel is now rhodium-plated to match the gear train. Plus, it perfectly coordinates with the small seconds placed opposite. The main plate features “Rayons de la Gloire” finishes. In conclusion, Arnold & Son rises magnificently to the challenge of sending its Nebula 41.5 Steel into a new orbit.

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.

Kross Studio - The Batman Bat Signal

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.

Dark Personas
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.

“The Batman” Collector sets ($100,000 USD each) and “The Batman” collectible watch rolls ($250 USD each). Both are now available for individual sale at kross-studio.ch or through official partners and select authorized retailers.

A turning disc reveals the waxing and waning of the celestial body appearance of the crescent moon and its shimmering light. The moon in low relief has been crafted of mother-of-pearl. It is enhanced and painted with Super-LumiNova.

In daylight, it beautifully appears grey, almost white. Yet in the dark, the moon appears lit from within and takes on a new aspect, brimming with gleaming detail. This ethereal effect is echoed by the dial’s aquatic details, which have also been hand-painted with luminous pigments. In the background, the disc bearing the star is made from a deep black aventurine glass.

Expressive

The centerpiece of this dial is, of course, the tiger itself. Sculpted in three dimensions, it is crafted from 18-karat rose gold. Hence its expression, pose and the details of its fur have been painstakingly hand-engraved and -burnished. This meticulous, high-caliber luxury watch testifies to Arnold & Son’s exceptional attention to detail. As a result, the end product of this limited edition watch pays tribute to the Chinese zodiac.

The same attention to detail extends to the dial in every aspect. The bamboo has been painted in gold powder atop a hematite disc, exhibiting infinite glittering inclusions. Ultimately, the “Year of the Tiger” Perpetual Moon watch is mounted on a glistening black alligator strap backed with red alligator leather. Lastly, it is stitched with platinum thread.

Precise

Like all the movements used by Arnold & Son, the A&S1512 caliber was entirely developed, produced, decorated, adjusted, assembled, and finished between the walls of the brand’s manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds. This complex caliber is based on two barrels with an oscillation frequency of 3 Hz, delivering a 90-hour power reserve.

Last but not least, the moon-phase display of this movement will remain accurate for 122 years. Thus only deviating from the actual lunar cycle by a single day. In this way, the “Year of the Tiger” Perpetual Moon observes this auspicious year, Plus, it takes part in the broader astronomical, astrological cycle.
