Geneva based luxury watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome is known for making bold, unorthodox timepieces. After introducing the limited edition Batman watch two years back, which was based on the brand’s Spacecraft design, the watchmaker has teamed up with Warner Bros. once again to come up with a special edition timepiece themed on the caped crusader. The collaboration between the two began with the Batman-DNA watch which was launched in 2014 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight. The newest special edition watch is based on the brand’s distinguishable Skylab model which came out in 2013. Transparency dominates the timepiece with its skeletonized construction and the dark theme of the watch gives it a very appealing presence.
The 48mm case of the watch features a Swiss made manual winding movement designed by RJ and characterized by straight lines and chamfered angles. It offers a power reserve 48 hours. The center piece of the watch is the luminescent blue bat signal in the middle of the dial which is further augmented by the Gotham City map on the back sapphire crystal glass. The case has a bi-tone finish which is a combination of polished and satin-finished steel and black PVD-coated look. The watch comes on black alligator straps with steel folding clasp. The Batman edition of the Skylab model will see a limited run of only 75 pieces, but there is no word on the price as of yet.
