Drawing from the overwhelming feedback on their first Batman Collection, UNDONE presents the Batman Quantum collection.
This Batman Quantum watch boasts a powerhouse NH35A automatic movement, scratch-proof sapphire crystal dome and the same indestructible Grade II Titanium alloy case. The UNDONE x Batman Quantum collection is comprised of two editions: the Batman Quantum Black (Limited Edition) and the Batman Quantum Silver (Standard Edition).
In conceiving the watch pieces, great attention to detail was put into presenting a tribute loyal to the classic design language in Batman’s formidable arsenal of iconic suits, vehicles and gadgets.
Inspired by the “Batmobile” and Mech-Batsuit, the case sports a muted and sinister colorway, along with a sleek, sandblasted finishing touch for an ultimate reminiscent of its distinctive angles. The Batman Quantum Black features the new DLC (diamond-like-carbon) coating technology, making it even meaner and indestructible.
The dial is uniquely designed to be semi-transparent, revealing the automatic movement beneath. This cleverly reflects Batman’s renowned message, “no matter how dark the night… there will be no hiding place for evil”. Also, set on the dial are the military-looking indices that bear a striking resemblance to the pipe of the Batmobile’s jet-engine rear exhaust.
Eagle-eyed fans would notice a subtle highlight of the yellow date indicator wheel, reimagined to add a finishing touch to the muscular, blackout character. It is also a reminder of Batman’s distinctive yellow oval insignia (1989-1993) on his suit, brought back by Michael Keaton, who starred as the titular hero.
When darkness falls, the lume illuminates to showcase a quantum radar – an icy blue, luminous detect-a-scope radar.
The illumination symbolizes Batman’s rebellion and fearsomeness and the refusal to fade in the dark.
The bold bat-shaped logo on the crown signifies darkness, mystery and triumph over fear – deadly in all the best ways. Also, as a nod to the silent guardian, the watchful protector and the dark knight, a Batman’s emblem is printed on the medallion insert that is then integrated onto the watch’s caseback.
The Batsuit, made of hardened plates on titanium-dipped tri-weave fibers, was broken into multiple pieces of armor over a more flexible bodysuit for greater mobility. The watch strap is fashioned after the quality of his armor. Adding the finishing touch to the strap is the buckle, which stealthily resembles Batman’s form-fitting batsuit material.
The limited edition of the UNDONE Batman Quantum Black (500 pieces worldwide) is finished with an additional DLC (diamond-like-carbon) coating for that signature bat-black swagger.
The Batman Quantum boasts a Japanese TMI NH35A Automatic Winding Mechanism (supplied by SEIKO Manufacturing (H.K.) Limited) housed in a Grade II Titanium case with a sandblasted finishing touch, complete with a sapphire crystal lens. The case measures at 47mm (50mm including the crown) in diameter and a thickness of 16.25mm including the crystal lens. The bezel of the watch comes to 43mm in diameter.
Differentiating itself from the Standard Edition, the Batman Quantum Black (Limited Edition) comes with a DLC (diamond-like-carbon) coating.
