In collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, RJ-Romain Jerome is bringing back the caped crusader but this time in a new setting. With a 75-piece limited edition, the new Skylab Batman timepiece introduces a new facet of “The Dark Knight”.
At the center of the dial, we can perceive a familiar shape blending in with the architectural mechanism, a skeletonized Batman logo. This functional applique, acting as the motion-work, recalls both the sheerness and sophistication of the skeleton movement. But the subtlety of the Skylab Batman timepiece does not lie within the stealth and central logo, indeed the map of Gotham City has been metallized onto the back sapphire crystal glass.
Looking into the dial, Batman seems to be overlooking Gotham City and when darkness comes, the bat signal shines blue to echo the previous Batman models as well as “The Dark Knight” trilogy aesthetics.
With this new edition, it was RJ’s will to offer a different perspective on Batman to showcase his more elegant side to date.
