Kross Studio Collaborates With Uncrate For Ultra Cool Wayne Enterprises Watch Winder
When it comes to cool ultra-luxury watches, Kross Studio trumps the rest. In the past, the design studio has revealed a number of highly enticing collectible timepieces. It’s latest is a Wayne Enterprises Watch Winder.
The new watch accessory is a direct result of a collaboration with Uncrate and Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC. The Wayne Enterprises x Kross Studio Watch Winder is inspired by DC’s Bruce Wayne, man-about-town, and hero of Gotham City.
Kross Studio takes its cues from Bruce Wayne’s sophisticated taste, infused with mystery and purpose. The new Kross Studio x Wayne Enterprises Watch Winder will feature in the upscale new collection developed in partnership with Uncrate, revealed first on Uncrate.com.
Kross Studio for Wayne Enterprises
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Uncrate approached Kross Studio to take part in this collaboration, and the renegade Swiss design atelier channelled Bruce Wayne’s enigmatic elegance for this exclusive version of its watch winder. Appealing design meets impressive horological function in the Kross Studio x Wayne Enterprises winder, making this top-of-the-line technological accessory the perfect fit for the Wayne Enterprises and Uncrate collaboration.
As always with any project development, for Kross Studio, functionality Is paramount. This winder comes equipped with two coordinating elements: the winding motor and its support. The winding motor can easily be disassembled and stored while winding a watch, leaving the stand-alone custom brushed black anodized aluminum base to be admired in all Its sophistication. Kross Studio customized the support for this limited edition, emblazoned on its front with a subtle Wayne Enterprises logo.
The winding engine, the most powerful commercial watch winder on the market today, harnesses the force of its powerful movement to maintain the mechanism of any automatic mechanical watch placed within the winding capsule. It comes equipped with an infrared sensor that detects the presence of a watch and thereby activates the winder. When no watch is present, the device remains in standby mode to conserve power.
Connected Like Bruce Wayne
The Bluetooth interface offers the owner access to all its parameters available via a smartphone dedicated application, Kross Watch Winder, available on the App Store and Google Play. In this way, the user can define optimal settings for their automatic watch model, fine-tuning the direction of rotation, rotation time, and load control.
The Kross Studio watch winder was developed in-house by the Studio engineers. Assembled by hand, it is made up of 26 pieces for a total of 2kg, and measures 13cm long, 15cm wide and 21,5cm high. Particular attention has been paid to the smallest details, as in all Kross Studio achievements, revealing all the passion and mastery instilled in its design.
