Kross Studio Launches New Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Collector Set
The 10-Piece limited edition includes a Transformers inspired watch and functional sculpture
Watchmaker Kross Studio’s CEO, Marco Tedeschi, has announced on 13 June 2023, that the brand has officially begun a new partnership, this time with Hasbro, at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo, where a 10-piece limited collector’s set inspired by the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts film.
With the introduction of the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Collector Set, Hasbro-Kross solidifies its position as a leader in this space and the only manufacturer to create luxury collector sets consisting of high-end timepieces and functional sculptures inspired by pop culture icons.
Moreover, this is the first time a watchmaker has created a piece inspired by the Transformers universe. Since its inception in the 1980s, the franchise has been a crowd-pleaser, enjoying unwavering enthusiasm from a demanding and dedicated community engaged by the battle in movies, TV shows, comic books, and more.
More Than Meets The Eye
To pay tribute to the Transformers universe and its nearly 40-year legacy, Kross Studio drew inspiration from key elements of the franchise as depicted in Steven Caple’s film, such as the Mechatron green, Cybertronian language, Maximal faction emblem, and engravings as seen in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
On top of that, each dial element has undergone meticulous work, reflecting the great attention to detail given to its realization. Green SuperLuminova has been carefully applied to the hour hand bearing the Maximal emblem, to the minute track of the rehaut, and to the center of the indexes.
Utility, form And function
For Kross Studio, each design requires a delicate balance between ergonomic and aesthetic considerations. The case offers an ergonomic experience thanks to its clever D-ring winding and time-setting system, located on the case back,and by the “Time Set” push button placed between 3 and 4 o’clock.
