From Police to Fossil, these brands have released a series of timepieces inspired by the upcoming ‘The Batman’ movie.
One of the most anticipated movies of 2022 is set to release on March 4th, 2022, and it is The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Colin Farell, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright and Andy Serkis. This 2022 reboot of the Batman franchise is directed by Matt Reeves, who has films like Cloverfield and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to his credit, and it’s a movie fans have pinned a lot of hope on.
As anticipation ramps up for the international release of The Batman movie, we bring you a couple of watches released in partnership with Warner Bros. and DC comics.
Fossil partners with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC to bring us THE BATMAN Capsule collection that includes a range of products like watches, leather goods and jewellery. All of these take inspiration from the upcoming Batman movie. Each of the products in the collaboration features limited-edition designs inspired by Batman and the enigmatic supervillain The Riddler.
The Batman Watch takes its design cues from the matte black designs of the highly protective batsuit and armour. It comes in stainless steel, black ion-plated 42mm case structure with a black dial housing glowing green lume on all hour markers and striking red accents. Inside the watch is an automatic movement that allows accurate reading of time and an additional date function. The Batman™️ Watch is available in three easily interchangeable black straps equipped with materials that mimic Batman’s tech and The Batcycle: Kevlar®, ballistic nylon and moulded silicone.
Like all superheroes need a supervillain, the Batman Watch gets The Riddler Watch. Inspired by the villain, splashing noxious green graffiti, The Riddler Watch comes in a minimalist stainless steel black ion-plated 44mm case strapped to a checker-patterned leather strap on one side along with the trademark question mark spinning atop the 6-hour sub eye. Limited to just 1595 pieces, the price of The Riddler Watch costs Rs 11,995, and The Batman costs Rs 22,995.

The world’s most outstanding detective partners with the fashion brand Police to bring us four new models under The Batman edition. Each of the three watches embodies the spirit of the popular DC comic series and the distinguished design language of the fashion brand Police. Limited to just 10,000 pieces worldwide, the four models of THE BATMAN series artfully represent the various entities of the film. It includes Bruce Wayne’s alter ego and masked vigilante THE BATMAN, the enigmatic new rising persona Vengeance, the crime-ridden city of Gotham and Batman’s mysterious new acquaintance Catwoman.
THE BATMAN watch comes in a unique two-part case construction that signifies the duality of the main character. The lower half of the black dial holds the Bat Symbol and the movie title art. Each of the two cases is set to a separate timezone, making it the perfect companion for international adventures. The Vengeance edition comes with three dials for three different time zones. It is available in a black plated stainless steel case and bracelet with the main dial with hour-markers rising upward and outwards. The Gotham City edition is an ode to the famous city that comes alive with a radiant backlight feature inside the black plated stainless-steel case.

Kross Studio expands its ongoing partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to launch two new projects celebrating the upcoming Batman movie. It includes a new 10-piece limited-edition “The Batman” collector set and a new series of “The Batman”-themed watch rolls. The former will consist of a Batman Tourbillon watch and an illuminated Bat-Signal functional art piece. At the same time, the latter will feature four designs inspired by the iconic DC characters from the film, like Batman (two editions), Selina Kyle (Catwoman) and The Riddler. The new watch rolls will be each sold separately at USD 250.
The new wristwatch embodies Batman with its dark and ultra-precise movement. The watch’s design features a 45mm Grade 5 Titanium case protected by a black DLC treatment with a dome-shaped anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Inside the case structure lies a new version of Kross Studio’s in-house developed and produced caliber KS 7’000. A mechanical hand-wound 3 Hz caliber with a power reserve of 5 days. It also features a central tourbillon cage that is presented as a bat emblem in the centre of the black dial.
Like the technologically advanced movement, the dial uniquely displays the time. The hour hand is affixed to the peripheral display mechanism orbiting 360° around the tourbillon, and the minutes’ hands are displayed on the disk and make one revolution per hour. Additionally, the unique and straightforward to work D-ring crown sitting on the caseback and the Time Set push-button at 3 o’clock makes the watch comfortable to wear.
The Kross Studio “The Batman” Tourbillon watch is available in three strap options; a black calf leather strap embossed with the pattern of Batman’s armour, a black rubber strap with black stitching and a red rubber strap with red stitching. With each of this 10-piece limited edition watch, Kross Studio also includes a functional Bat-Signal art piece that illuminates, further immersing the collector to the universe of Gotham City and The Batman.
“The Batman” Collector sets (USD 100,000 each) and “The Batman” collectable watch rolls (250 USD each) are available for individual sale here or through official partners and select authorized retailers.
