      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.

      What makes this Batmobile clock unique

      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.

      Live the Batman experience one minute at a time

      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 desk clock, 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.

      Time Display

      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.

      Vertical regulator

      The vertical regulator is highlighted through the turbine at the front of the car. 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.

      An outstanding power reserve of 30 days

      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.

      A Batman-shaped key

      A Batman-shaped key in satin-finished and mirror-polished steel is included to wind the clock and set the time.
