Kross Studio has partnered with Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), DC, and Uncrate on an exclusive collaboration: the Wayne Enterprises x Kross Studio Watch Winder. Available to pre-order beginning September 22 on Uncrate.com, the unique watch winder is debuting as part of WBCP’s all-new Wayne Enterprises lifestyle label.
Created by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Wayne Enterprises is a sophisticated lifestyle label featuring luxury products and experiences inspired by DC’s Bruce Wayne, man-about-town and hero of Gotham City. The brand takes its cues from Bruce Wayne’s sophisticated taste, infused with mystery and purpose. The new Kross Studio x Wayne Enterprises Watch Winder will feature in the upscale new collection developed in partnership with Uncrate, to be revealed first on Uncrate.com starting September 22.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Uncrate approached Kross Studio to take part in this collaboration, and the renegade Swiss design atelier channeled Bruce Wayne’s enigmatic elegance for this exclusive version of its watch winder. Appealing design meets Impressive horological function in the Kross Studio x Wayne Enterprises winder, making this top-of-the-line technological accessory the perfect fit for the Wayne Enterprises and Uncrate collaboration.
This winder comes equipped with two coordinating elements: the winding motor and its support. The winding motor can easily be disassembled and stored while winding a watch, leaving the stand-alone custom brushed black anodized aluminum base to be admired in all its sophistication. Kross Studio customized the support for this limited edition, emblazoned on its front with a subtle Wayne Enterprises logo.
The winding engine, the most powerful commercial watch winders on the market today, harnesses the force of its powerful movement to maintain the mechanism of any automatic mechanical watch placed within the winding capsule. It comes equipped with an infrared sensor that detects the presence of a watch, and thereby activates the winder. When no watch is present, the device remains in standby mode to conserve power.
The Bluetooth interface offers the owner access to all its parameters available via a smartphone dedicated application, Kross Watch Winder, available on the App Store and Google Play. In this way, the user can define optimal settings for their automatic watch model, fine-tuning the direction of rotation, rotation time, and load control.
The Kross Studio watch winder was developed in-house by the Studio engineers. Assembled by hand, it is made up of 26 pieces for a total of 2kg, and measures 13cm long, 15cm wide and 21,5cm high. Particular attention has been paid to the smallest details, as in all Kross Studio achievements, revealing all the passion and mastery instilled in its design.
The Kross Studio Watch Winder Wayne Enterprises Edition (1990 CHF – 2100 USD approx) will be available for pre-order first onuncrate.com starting September 22, 2022, and onkross-studio.com, and from authorized retailers starting October 12, 2022.
