Kross Studio Debuts 'Wonder Woman' Tourbillon Timepiece
The custom-commissioned watch lets the superheroine’s signature iconography tell the time.
Kross Studio has debuted a new Wonder Woman tourbillon watch, made in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and DC.
In tribute to the invincible superheroine, Kross Studio’s custom-commissioned, one-of-a-kind timepiece pushes the limits on high watchmaking. In making the watch, the manufacturer developed an ultra-complex casing process that unites the watch’s dial and movement, in which both follow the curve of the device’s sapphire crystal across its full diameter. In lieu of capping the central tourbillon cage with a decorative piece, Kross incorporated Wonder Woman’s signature iconography into the dial.
Zooming in, the hour hand, depicting Wonder Woman’s sword, latches onto the peripheral display mechanism in a 360-degree orbit around the tourbillon. Meanwhile, the character’s tiara points to her shield, where the minutes are displayed in increments, and hour markers are crafted in star shapes.
Notably, the Wonder Woman tourbillon comprises 283 total elements, 205 in its movement alone. According to the brand, the hand-wound mechanical caliber is an homage to the superheroine’s strength, with a five-day power reserve.
The watch arrives with three straps that are easily interchangeable with a quick-change strap system. Among them, Kross offers a blue calf leather strap, a red alligator strap and an anthracite grey goat leather strap.
