New York | Gland, Switzerland (December 1, 2020) – The independent design studio and manufacturer Kross Studio – whose mission is to turn ordinary objects into extraordinary, collectible art objects – is proud to reveal its official collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and the first fruit of their partnership, the 1989 Batmobile X Kross Studio Desk Clock. This sleek desk clock pays tribute to the most iconic car in the realm of comics, The Batmobile, issued in a limited series of just 100 numbered pieces.
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 its own powerful engine: 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.
This exclusive collectible is produced in a limited edition of 100 numbered pieces and is available now from the Kross Studio webstore for $29,900 USD.
