Inspired by the Dark Knight, Introducing the Romain Jerome Spacecraft Batman (with Pricing)

Romain Jerome and DC Comics join forces to unveil the Spacecraft Batman, a wristwatch inspired by the "Tumbler" Batmobile. 



Made entirely from black-coated titanium, the Spacecraft Batman is the second Dark Knight-inspired wristwatch from Romain Jerome. It indicates the time via a horizontal jumping hour on the front, with the minutes shown on the top of the case.


Capped with an irregular, angular titanium cladding modelled on the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan's Batman films, the Spacecraft Batman is finished with an irregular brushed finished applied by hand. A tiny Batman logo is engraved on the right corner of the case.



Measuring 44.5mm in wide and 50mm long, the Spacecraft Batman is moderately sized, despite its novel form. Like the other Spacecraft watches, the Spacecraft Batman is powered by a calibre developed by movement specialist Agenhor. The Agenhor time display mechanism is mounted on a Sellita base movement that's self-winding with a 38 hour power reserve.



Limited to 75 pieces, the Spacecraft Batman is priced at SFr26,950, €29,950 or US$32,950.
