Celebrate Star Wars Day with the Death Star Ultimate Collector Set
Tuesday, May 4 is Star Wars Day. Celebrate fandom on Star Wars Day with a Death Star-inspired, Ultimate Collector Set from Kross Studio. The company honors the iconic, Star Wars space saga. As a result, this one-of-a-kind Death Star Ultimate Collector Set is crafted for those who savor Star Wars history.
The larger-than-life collector sets are limited in quantity, with only 10 being created. This Star Wars Day set is crafted to the finest standards of Swiss design and engineering. Thus, it is the perfect companion for ultimate collectors. For example, each set contains a Death Star inspired Tourbillon watch, an authentic kyber crystal movie prop from the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Last, it’s delivered in a richly detailed Imperial kyber crystal container that measures over three feet long.
Own a piece of cinematic history
Kross Studio brings the emblematic power of the Death Star to life. The imposing design details of the mobile space station and planet-destroying superweapon form the cornerstone of this new collection.
Each collectible set contains an official screen-used kyber crystal – the power source of the Death Star’s superlaser. It is featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Interestingly, this marks the first time that authentic kyber crystal props will be released to the public. Thus here is an opportunity for die-hard fans to own a piece of the fascinating Star Wars galaxy.
Inspired by the Death Star legacy
Kross Studio took up the challenge of the central tourbillon. Develop a mechanical complication honoring the prominent Death Star. For example, it is featured in a 45 mm black DLC coated grade 5 titanium case. Continuing, the captivating Death Star-inspired Tourbillon cage makes one revolution per minute. On the surface of the Death Star-inspired Tourbillon, a green superlaser cannon stands reminiscent of the space station’s kyber crystal enabled power.
The watch itself tells us a great story of passion, craftsmanship and advanced technology. Features include the house-developed manual-winding mechanical movement that delivers a robust 5-day power reserve. Plus, the hands have been affixed to a peripheral display that orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon. A traditional crown system has been replaced by an ingenious, inset push-button system.
Kross Studio developed a D-ring shaped crown on the case back for winding the watch. It is out of sight to help maintain the timepiece’s sleek, space-age styling. These clean lines are also preserved by cleverly hiding quick-release buttons on the underside of the case. This practical feature will doubtless be welcomed by collectors. As a result, it allows a quick change of the straps from the included calfskin leather strap to either of the two other included rubber straps.
An eminent design object with an immersive visual experience
The powerful and precious nature of the kyber crystals in the Star Wars galaxy, required them to be stored in armored crates for transport. Faithful to the film storytelling, Kross Studio conceived an official reproduction of those containers, made of wood and aluminum.
More than 700 parts were necessary to produce each container. It’s scaled to half the original film dimensions of 3.94 feet long (1.20 meters). Fully hand-assembled and hand-painted, the containers embody the iconic saga story down to the smallest detail. Every aspect of these substantial art objects, like fine sculptures, have been thoroughly conceptualized and executed. The details take the viewer into the Star Wars galaxy. As an example, the backlit manifest panel inscribed in Aurebesh script – one of the most widely used alphabets in the Star Wars galaxy.
Celebrate in our own galaxy
Star Wars iconography is subtly inserted to sublimate the whole. Thus, the esthetic Galactic Empire emblem and the push-button feature an engraving in Aurebesh script. Moreover, the hour hand takes the shape of an Imperial-Class Star Destroyer. While the minute hand appears as a Super-Class Star Destroyer. It carries no less than 38,000 stormtroopers. At last, the fixed hours wheel, filled with white superluminova “blue emission”, is inspired by the lighting halls embedded in the Imperial vessels.
This Star Wars Day collection is extremely rare. Remember, only 10 of these Death Star Collector Sets will ever be produced. But the launch is just the first of more exciting Star Wars-inspired products to come from Kross Studio. The company looks forward to bringing the most breathtaking and immersive experiences to their fans and customers.
May the 4th Be With You!
