Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

One of the most enigmatic characters in the Star Wars galaxy has inspired Kross Studio’s latest creation, in collaboration with Lucasfilm.

The Swiss design studio has revealed a new and limited edition of ten Boba Fett-inspired collector sets, each complete with a numbered, manual wound Boba Fett-inspired central Tourbillon timepiece and a watch display by EFX, inspired by Boba Fett’s famed starship.

The central tourbillon is showcased within a 45mm grade 5 titanium case, coated with chocolate PVD. Kross Studio engineers reached another level by undertaking the challenge of manufacturing a miniature starship on its landing platform at the top of the tourbillon’s cage.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

Composed of eight pieces, each miniature tourbillon resembling Boba Fett’s firespray starship has been produced at Kross Studio and manufactured in CNC machines. Each piece has been meticulously engraved and hand painted to mimic the weathered appearance of Boba Fett’s ship as it appears in Bespin™ at Cloud City in the Star Wars film saga.

The level of detail is incredible, and it highlights the unique savoir-faire perpetuated by artisans in Switzerland. It took 90 hours to make each of the ten pieces that are based on the starship and each one is a unique piece.

Kross Studio has employed a unique peripheral format for reading the hours and minutes through a planetary gear system that orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon. A 12-factor gear ratio allows the planetary minutes system to empower the progression of the hours.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

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. 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.

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

No visible crown impedes the case’s perfect symmetry thanks to Kross Studio’s ingenious D-ring crown system, placed instead on the case back. The barrel’s mainspring is wound by lifting the D-ring on the case back, which is turned like a key, offering a more intuitive and more efficient user experience than a traditional crown.

The timepiece offers a maximum power reserve of five days. Time-setting is just as simple, completed by pressing the “Time Set” push button at 3 o’clock while simultaneously turning the case back D-ring in either direction.

Cleverly hidden quick-release strap buttons on the underside of the case also help preserve the timepiece’s clean lines, a handy feature which allows quick strap changes from the included green polyamide strap embossed with the pattern of Boba Fett’s chest armor to either of the other included straps: the chocolate color calf leather strap and the black rubber strap. To optimize durability and comfort, each included strap has been reinforced with black rubber inlay.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

Kross Studio worked with EFX to create ten unique watch displays that would fit the Boba Fett collector set. The company is known worldwide as an exceptional manufacturer of extremely high quality “screen accurate” limited edition prop replicas and collectibles from favorite films, television, video games and other entertainment media.

It made perfect sense to take inspiration from Boba Fett’s iconic starship and to make a watch display that can carry the Boba Fett Tourbillon in its cockpit while being displayed as an art piece in a select few collectors’ rooms.

Each EFX Boba Fett’s starship watch display is the same scale as the actual filming model as seen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™. They are made with an aluminum and acrylic substructure with the detail parts cast in resin.

Each detail piece is individually cast from a master made from the same model kit parts used to make the screen used prop and then carefully finished and painted by hand. The parts of the EFX Boba Fett’s starship-inspired watch display were developed with a thorough review of the screen used prop.

The starship-inspired watch display comes affixed on a platform resembling a ship landing pad and made of wood in Kross Studio ateliers.

Boba Fett leaves no detail to chance, a quality that cemented his legendary status for legions of Star Wars fans. Kross Studio shares his consummate quest for precision, and with each subsequent design, the brand secures its iconic status in our galaxy.

Like the Death Star™ Ultimate Collector Set before it, this 10-piece series of Boba Fett Collector Sets will never be produced again, joining the pantheon of the galaxy’s most highly sought Star Wars collectibles.

Boba Fett collector sets ($120,000 USD each) will be available for individual sale at kross-studio.com, or through official partners and select authorized retailers.

Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon

Kross Studio and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have expanded their ongoing partnership with their latest collaboration featuring two new projects in celebration of the Warner Bros. Pictures’ film “The Batman,” including a new 10-piece, limited-numbered “The Batman” Collector set and a new series of “The Batman”-themed watch rolls. The luxury collector set (100,000 USD) includes “The Batman” Tourbillon watch and an illuminated Bat-Signal functional art piece.

The new collection of watch rolls, each sold separately (250 USD), features four distinct representations inspired by iconic DC characters from the film: Batman (two editions), Selina Kyle (Catwoman), and The Riddler.

Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon
The Kross team developed a wristwatch that embodies Batman, with its dark styling, ultra-precise movement, and the Bat Signal representation so famously used to summon the Super Hero. Here, 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, with 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 and enables glimpses of the regulator below and makes one revolution per minute.

Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon
The timepiece presents a different reading of hours and minutes. The hour hand is affixed to a peripheral display mechanism orbiting 360° around the tourbillon. The minutes are displayed on a disk, making one revolution per hour. A domed sapphire crystal arcs over the dial in a low profile that complements the rounded edges of the black DLC coated grade 5 titanium 45mm titanium case. Altogether, the movement and watch components total 283 parts, each hand-made and assembled on-site by Kross Studio in Gland, Switzerland.

For Kross Studio, the timepiece design required an equal balance of ergonomic considerations and improved user experience. The unique D-ring crown, found on the case back, and the “Time Set” push button, placed at 3 o’clock on the edge of the watch, maintain a low-profile to ensure a more comfortable wear than a conventional crown while also improving performance with a faster, easier winding and time-setting experience.

Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon
The barrel’s mainspring is wound by lifting the D-Ring found on the case back and turning it like a key. To set the time, the wearer simply presses the “Time Set” push button located at 3 o’clock while turning the case back D-ring in either direction.

Ease of use also extends to changing “The Batman” Tourbillon’s watch straps via Kross Studio’s ingenious interchangeable strap system, allowing the removal and change of the strap with a simple ‘click’ of its quick release button. This enables an easy switch to any one of the three included strap options: a black calf leather strap embossed with the pattern of Batman’s armor, a black rubber strap with black stitching, or the red rubber strap with red stitching. All straps are reinforced with a black rubber inlay for optimal durability and comfort.

Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon
The Bat Signal plays such a key role in “The Batman” Tourbillon that it was only fitting for Kross Studio to include a functional Bat Signal art piece as an integral element of each collector set. Each timepiece comes delivered alongside a functional Bat Signal that illuminates, further immersing the collector into the universe of Gotham City and “The Batman”. It also hides a dedicated space on his backside to safely store The Batman tourbillon or any other watch.

Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon
Beside the collector set, Kross Studio unveiled a collection of four functional collectibles, making the watch roll the perfect companion for watch enthusiasts and fans of the Caped Crusader. The new collection of watch rolls, each sold separately (250 USD), features four distinct representations of iconic film characters from the movie: Batman (two editions), Selina Kyle (Catwoman), and The Riddler. Each watch holder is made of several leather textures and added elements reminiscent of the characters it represents.

Each watch holder model is crafted of vegetal tan genuine leather and comes screen-printed with a character’s striking likeness. Kross Studio designed each watch roll with unique accents and complementary colors inspired by the film character represented, with screen prints and contrast stitching in red for Batman editions, blue for the Selina Kyle (Catwoman) option, or green for The Riddler model. Snap top closures flip wide open to accommodate any style of watch, cushioned on a removable pillow insert.

High-quality black microfiber fabric and robust padding cradles the watch secured within and effectively prevents scratches and damage to the dial and band or strap. A co-branded patch stitched to the watch roll flap attests to each product’s authenticity. An included instruction card with QR code directs the owner to a registration page to access the digital user manual and to activate the 3-year extended warranty.

Again, Kross Studio erases boundaries between art, pop culture, and high horology presenting 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), are available for individual sale at kross-studio.ch, or through official partners and select authorized retailers.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon

Kross Studio presents a new tourbillon timepiece in collaboration with renowned watch designer Alain Silberstein. The latest project from Kross Studio Founder Marco Tedeschi, this horological masterpiece captures the essence of the sacred lotus flower.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon

The Lotus Tourbillon is equipped with the KS 7’000 caliber. This manual winding central tourbillon movement from Kross Studio comes equipped with an oversized barrel offering a 5-day power reserve. The regulator takes its place in the center within a tourbillon cage at the top of the barrel, uniting form and function, and setting the stage for innumerable and creative iterations, this time: a delicate lotus flower.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon
The lotus flower in polished grade 5 titanium has been machined entirely in the Kross Studio manufacture. It seems to float above the tourbillon in all its lightness, with four elements superimposed to symbolize perfect harmony.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon
The time can be read using the peripheral hour and minute display, which orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon, the cyclical and harmonious rhythm of the hours, minutes, and seconds echoing the lifecycle of the lotus and serving as a constant reminder of each precious moment. Inside the 45mm titanium case protected by a black DLC treatment, the lotus blossoms under a sapphire dome.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon
On the dial side, the main components of the movement have been hand-brushed in a circular pattern from the center and treated in black, reinforcing the vision of a lotus floating on still waters. Its open petal forms enable rays of light to penetrate the lotus petals and allow the watch to reveal its thousand secrets.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon
A D-ring winder on the case back allows easy movement winding, while the time is set via the push button between 3 and 4 o’clock. The push button employs Silberstein’s signature bold graphic style, engraved and filled with an invigorating yellow lacquer. Kross Studio devised this unique system to ensure design symmetry and a more comfortable experience on the wrist than a traditional crown, while also enabling faster winding.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon

On the case back, engravings of red circles align with the Kross Studio logo in a testament to this unique partnership between the Swiss design studio and Alain Silberstein.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon
The watch comes with two straps: one in black vegan leather lined with rubber, and the other in black rubber. Like all Kross Studio watches, the interchangeable strap system allows users to easily switch from one strap to the other with a single click of the quick-release buttons, located on the underside of the watch.

Kross Studio X Alain Silberstein: The Lotus Tourbillon

Silberstein’s signature geometric shapes and primary colors naturally find their place within the Lotus Tourbillon, offering bold counterparts to the poetry and lightness of the floating lotus.

The watch comes delivered in a unique handcrafted watch case: an art object that is both visually striking and functional, designed especially for this collaboration. The totem consists of stacked forms, including a blue triangle, yellow square, and red circle interpreted in 3 dimensions. The Lotus Tourbillon takes its place within a compartment that has been seamlessly integrated into the yellow cube.

Limited to eighteen pieces, this timepiece comes with its certificate of authenticity signed by Alain Silberstein and Marco Tedeschi and its owner’s book. The Lotus Tourbillon is available at http://www.kross-studio.com and at select authorized dealers.

Kross Studio X Star Wars™ Watch Roll Collection

Kross Studio X Star Wars™ Watch Roll Collection

For anyone who has already acquired a Death Star Tourbillon watch from the Death Star Ultimate Collector Set and the new TIE Advanced x1 watch winder by Kross Studio, one of these new watch rolls makes the perfect holiday gift item to complete their own Star Wars collection. The new collectible Star Wars watch rolls are available at kross-studio.ch, or through official partners and select authorized retailers.

KROSS STUDIO TIE Advanced x1 Watch Winder

Last spring, Switzerland based Kross Studio introduced the Ultimate Collector’s Set dedicated to the Death Star ™, notably including an innovative central tourbillon watch and an authentic Kyber Crystal ™ prop shard featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ™.

Both timepiece and film prop piece were delivered in a 1.2-meter-long immersive and functional art piece styled as an Imperial kyber crystal container. Now, Kross Studio, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., reveals the next chapter in a Star Wars inspired watch winder.

Inspired by Darth Vader’s commanding presence, Kross Studio has now created the new TIE Advanced x1- themed watch winding sculpture, released in a limited series.

The studio sets its watch winder apart as a fully operational art object, integrating its winding engine into a solid aluminum sculpture which is directly inspired by the TIE Advanced x1 starfighter, piloted by Lord Darth Vader himself in the film Star Wars: A New Hope™.

The TIE Advanced x1- themed Watch Winder is made of solid black anodized aluminum, fully machined, hand-finished and assembled in-house, attesting to Kross Studio’s superior engineering and manufacturing skills. The sculpture measures 20cm long, 28cm wide, and 17cm high, and weighs a total of 4kg.

Fittingly, the Star Wars-inspired watch winder harnesses the force of its powerful movement to maintain the mechanism of any automatic mechanical watch placed within the winding capsule. In a clever innovation, the Kross Studio TIE Advanced x1-inspired watch winder and sculpture comes equipped with an infrared sensor that detects the presence of a watch, and thereby activates the winder. The battery life lasts over two years, and when no watch is present, the device remains in standby mode to conserve power.

Kross Studio designed the TIE Advanced x1 art object and watch winder to impress and perform to the highest standard. Its Bluetooth interface offers the owner access to all its parameters available via a dedicated smartphone 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 watch winder also comes with a Galactic Empire designed key to replace the batteries.

The Kross Studio TIE Advanced x1- themed watch winding sculptures ($2,500 USD each) are available to purchase on kross-studio.com and at select authorized Kross Studio retailers, for a limited time only.

The “Space Jam: A New Legacy” Collector Set by Kross Studio and Warner Bros. Consumer Products

The latest collaboration between Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Kross Studio celebrates the upcoming animated/live-action Space Jam: A New Legacy movie, releasing in theatres on July 16, 2021, and on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release in the United States.

Kross Studio is a manufacturer and design studio based in Switzerland, founded in 2020 by a group of five entrepreneurs, each bringing decades of experience at the highest echelons of luxury and design. For the occasion, Kross Studio designed a high-end sophisticated watch and a functional art object merging four fascinating worlds: basketball, horology, art, and Looney Tunes.

Embracing the Tune Squad’s spirit, Kross Studio aims to push limits and play the game its own way. The design studio demonstrates its performance and technical prowess in every element of these Collector Sets, balanced by the playful nostalgia of Looney Tunes iconography.

Basketball is one of the most popular and fast-paced professional sports, requiring skilled technique and excellence of its athletes on every inch of the court. The Kross team developed a wristwatch that embodies the precision and sporty style of the basketball world, demonstrating their own dominance as one of the leading design startups and independent watchmakers in the game today.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon wrist shot

The 3 Hz caliber KS7’000, developed and produced fully in-house by Kross Studio, made its entrance on the court earlier this year. This caliber is the perfect match for the Space Jam Tourbillon, reflecting Kross Studio’s streetwise design style and finely honed technical skills.

The mechanical hand-wound movement, equipped with an oversized barrel that can deliver a 5-day power reserve is placed in the center of the movement. It leaves no space for the regulator that is therefore placed in the center, in a tourbillon cage, on top of the barrel.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon movement caliber KS7'000

Kross Studio raised its game, leveraging the “Space Jam: A New Legacy” collaboration to engineer watchmaking parts that reflect the baller’s action-packed life on and off the court. The fully skeletonized design provides a deeper look at the highly detailed components, such as the wheels that have been styled as basketballs.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon

The central tourbillon cage towers over the piece, covered with an open-work basketball-like structure that reveals its regulator below. Each of the watch’s 281 parts has been hand-made to offer the ultimate fine-tuned finish.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon movement caliber KS7'000

Every detail of the watch invites you to get up and be ready to slam anytime just as the hour hand which turns into a free throw lane or “key”, a marked area on a basketball court surrounding the basket, filled with white blue emission SuperLuminova™. The hours and minutes are also displayed in a unique way. The hands have been affixed to a peripheral display mechanism orbiting 360° around the tourbillon.

The Tunes Squad enters the stage engraved on the fixed hour wheel, and each character of the “Dream Team” appears ready for action, from Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Tweety to Sylvester, Marvin the Martian, Yosemite Sam, Granny, Taz, Speedy Gonzales, Elmer Fudd to Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon watch

A 45mm titanium case with a sapphire crystal dome houses the entire scene, exalting the unique horology savoir-faire of Kross Studio. The reverse side of the case subtly highlights the Studio’s namesake cross emblem through the plate and barrel bridge, which have been coated in blue PVD for a captivating effect.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon

Watch winding and time setting are done via the “D-ring crown” on the case back and the “Time Set” push button, placed at 3 o’clock on the edge of the watch. Not only does this system ensure design symmetry and a more comfortable experience than a watch with a conventional crown, but it enables faster winding.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon

The watch is delivered with two straps: one in deep blue calfskin leather, and the other one in laser abraded rubber, reproducing the famous basketball orange color and texture. An interchangeable strap system allows a quick and simple strap change with a single click of the quick-release buttons, located on the underside of the Space Jam Tourbillon watch.

Kross Studio Space Jam Tourbillon

The watch comes along with a functional art piece, a stand-alone design object: the Kross Studio B-BALL. Like the timepiece, it also celebrates basketball culture and “Space Jam: A New Legacy.”

Designed and engineered by Kross Studio, the sculpture takes the form of a basketball, crafted in wood and aluminum. Eleven wooden layers representing flat basketballs have been affixed on a central pillar to create a mesmerizing effect. The watch can be stored in the heart of the sculpture, revealed by lifting the ball straight upward.

As a sneak peek of the Space Jam Tourbillon, the Tune Squad meets on the stand of the sculpture, waiting for the game to begin. This art piece was designed to be held and experienced and can be carefully removed from its pedestal. Holding this incredibly detailed piece, the collector can imagine their own destiny as a player in the Space Jam world.

Once again, Kross Studio reveals the power of artistic collaborations through a one-of-a-kind collectible set. The artwork is produced in a limited edition of 10 numbered pieces. Each piece arrives inside a bespoke wood crate, with its owner’s book, its certificate of authenticity and art handling gloves.

Kross Studio Limited Edition Death Star™ Set

Switzerland based Kross Studio presents an extremely limited-edition set composed of a Death Star™- inspired Tourbillon watch and an authentic kyber crystal movie prop from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, delivered in an outstanding Imperial kyber crystal container.

Kross Studio has achieved a stunning and significant milestone within just months of the company’s official launch, collaborating with Lucasfilm on this brand-new Star Wars™-inspired set. The release pays tribute to the iconic Star Wars space saga, creating a 10-piece series of Death Star-inspired Ultimate Collector Sets, for those who savor Star Wars history as much as high-end design objects. Crafted to the finest standards of Swiss design and engineering, this set is the perfect companion for collectors.

Kross Studio Limited Edition Death Star™ Set Kross Studio brings the emblematic power of the Death Star to life as the imposing design details of the mobile space station and planet-destroying superweapon is featured as 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 – as featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This marks the first time that authentic kyber crystal props will be released to the public as part of Kross Studio ultimate collector set and are an opportunity for die-hard fans to own a piece of the fascinating Star Wars galaxy.

Kross Studio Limited Edition Death Star™ Set
The powerful and precious nature of the crystals 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, 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.

Kross Studio Limited Edition Death Star™ Set

Every aspect of these substantial art objects, like fine sculptures, have been thoroughly conceptualized and executed with immersive details that take the viewer into the Star Wars galaxy, from the electronic control panel to the backlit manifest panel inscribed in the Aurebesh language of the Galactic Empire.

Inside, the container is divided into nine storage units. Three interior sections secure three removable capsules, containing: the Death Star Tourbillon watch, three accompanying timepiece straps sets, and the genuine movie prop kyber crystal, as featured in the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The other 6 free storage spaces within the crate offer ample storage space for collectors to house their personal Star Wars collectibles and ephemera, secured within a removable top cover.

Kross Studio took up the challenge of the central tourbillon – a mechanical complication honoring the prominent Death Star. Featured in a 45 mm black DLC coated grade 5 titanium case, 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 Death Star-inspired Tourbillon watch itself tells us a great story of passion, craftsmanship and advanced technology. Notable technical innovations are highlighted such as the house-developed manual-winding mechanical movement that delivers a robust 5-day power reserve.

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, stowed 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, allowing a quick change of the straps from the included calfskin leather strap to either of the two other included rubber straps.

Endlessly explore this beautiful design piece, where Star Wars iconography is subtly inserted to sublimate the whole, such as the esthetic Galactic Empire emblem and the push-button featuring an engraving in Aurebesh script – one of the most widely used alphabets in the Star Wars galaxy.

Moreover, the hour hand takes the shape of an Imperial-Class Star Destroyer, the bane of the rebellion, while the minute hand appears as a Super-Class Star Destroyer, able to carry 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.

1989 Batmobile X Kross Studio Desk Clock

The independent design studio and manufacturer Kross Studio has revealed its official collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

The very first product born from this collaboration is dedicated to the highly inspiring Batman Universe, paying tribute to the most iconic cars in comics: The Batmobile. Kross Studio specifically chose the sleek and stunning model from the 1989 Batman movie directed by Tim Burton to embody this first-of-its-kind clock.

1989 Batmobile X Kross Studio Desk Clock

The greatest challenge for Kross Studio was to conceive, develop and integrate a state-of-the-art tailor-made clock movement, while respecting the exact shape of the Batmobile. It took months of research and development to create this masterpiece of 512 components – 115 for the bodywork and 397 for the movement – where every detail has been meticulously thought-about. In comparison, a traditional mechanical movement usually bears 130 components.

The whole piece is made of the finest materials – carefully selected for their technical properties and refinement. The bodywork in black aluminium composite, with aeronautical grade scratch protection coating, magnificently shapes the 1989 Batmobile, reproducing the same curves and proportions. Even the wheels are spinning.

Only a few variations were envisioned to please the owner’s eyes and allow him a better experience, such as the smoked windows with a lighter taint to enable a subtle glimpse of the movement through the window.

Hours and minutes are displayed horizontally by two cylinders. Batman experts will appreciate reading the time on the top of the clock through bat-like cowl decals. The vertical regulator is highlighted through the turbine at the front of the car.

Kross Studio has equipped the Batmobile with an in-house mechanical manual-winding movement with an exceptional power reserve of 30 days. Three barrels were added to achieve this performance. Furthermore, it runs at a frequency of 21’600 beats per hour or 3 Hz – granting even more precision to the movement while the most common mechanical clock movements operate at 2.5 Hz.

A Batman-shaped key in satin-finished and mirror-polished steel is included to wind the clock and set the time. All of these features provide an endless wonder when contemplating this Batmobile work of art.

This exclusive collectible is produced in a limited edition of 100 numbered pieces.
