Jacob & Co. has dropped its first watches in partnership with Warner Bros and DC, two “Gotham City” twin, triple-axis flying tourbillons starring Batman himself.

The two watches are presented with either 18K rose gold – representing Bruce Wayne – or black DLC-coated titanium – representing his Dark Knight alter ego – 45.5mm cases in limited edition runs of 36-pieces each.

The watches include subtle nods to the comic book vigilante, including multi-faceted lugs taken from the batsuit and a rubber crown insert with tyre tracks taken from the batmobile.

The Batman symbol on the dial has been cut from a single slab of Onyx and is framed with a yellow rim of Neoralithe translucent resin imbued with Super-LumiNova, while its hour markers are attached to the outside rim of the dial, giving them the appearance of floating.

Both watches offer different approaches to their caseback. The rose gold model features a single rose gold bridge in the shape of the Batman symbol, revealing the movement’s twin barrels and tourbillons, while the titanium model features a closed caseback with an illustration of Batman laser-etched onto the underside of a sapphire crystal pane, which has been infilled with black lacquer sitting against a yellow background.

Jacob & Co has already produced film-based tie-ins, including both Godfather and Scarface-themed Opera musical watches.

Both versions of the Gotham City watches are out now via Jacob & Co., priced $220,000 USD for the titanium and $240,000 USD for the rose gold.
