Kross Studio presents The Batman Collector Set composed of The Batman tourbillon watch and an illuminated Bat-Signal functional art piece.
A Bat-Signal for the Wrist
The Kross Studio 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 the Batman emblem from the film. 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.
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.
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, 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.
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.
Light Up the Night
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.
