Pembelinya pasti orang yang punya selera tinggi.
Replika Batmobile yang digunakan dalam film Batman tahun 1989 ini sebenarnya adalah jam meja. Dan tahukah Anda berapa harganya?
Batmobile ini dijual 30.000 dolar AS (sekitar Rp400 juta) dan hanya diproduksi 100 unit di dunia. Huffftt...
Pada bagian bawah cangkang Batmobile yang detail itu ada perangkat jam mekanis. Pada grilnya Anda dapat melihat roda gigi untuk silinder jam dan menit yang besar di kap mesin.
Sementara di belakang angka-angka ada lebih banyak roda gigi yang dapat Anda saksikan bergerak melalui kaca depan berwarna.
Dan di belakangnya adalah barel pegas jam. Anda menggunakan kunci berbentuk kelelawar di nosel afterburner untuk memutarnya.

Replika jam ini dibuat dengan tangan oleh Kross Studio yang berbasis di Swiss. Jam ini berisi tidak kurang dari 34 permata dan 512 bagian di dalam mobil berukuran panjang hampir 298 mm.
Untuk daya, Batmobile ini menggunakan tiga barel jam yang membuat jam terus berdetak selama 30 hari.
Kami memang tidak tahu banyak tentang jam tapi ini terdengar seperti mahakarya teknik.
Sedangkan untuk bodinya, terbuat dari komposit aluminium dengan pelindung permukaan antigores.
Bodinya dibentuk untuk meniru Batmobile asli dengan proporsi dan jarak yang serasi dan diberi sentuhan akhir hitam matte.
Roda mobil ini juga bisa berputar dan meluncur. Tapi dengan harga fantastis seperti itu, siapa yang rela meluncurkannya di lantai?
Kross Studio and Warner Bros. Consumer Products team up
to unveil a top-of-the-line Batman collectible:
1989 Batmobile X Kross Studio Desk Clock
The ultimate combination of design, fine Swiss craftsmanship
and high-end materials bring the desk clock to the next level.
The independent design studio and manufacturer Kross Studio - whose mission is to elaborate never-conceived-before art pieces - is proud to reveal its official collaboration with the giant entertainment company Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
The very first product born from this collaboration is dedicated to the highly inspiring Batman Universe, paying tribute to the most iconic cars in comics: The Batmobile. Kross Studio specifically chose the sleek and stunning model from the 1989 Batman movie directed by Tim Burton to embody this first-of-its-kind clock.
What makes this Batmobile clock unique?
Kross Studio and Warner Bros. Consumer Products are united by innovation and creativity. Batman always gets the most performant and sophisticated gear. Kross Studio gives the same opportunity to its customers.
The greatest challenge for Kross Studio was to conceive, develop and integrate a state-of-the-art tailor-made clock movement, while respecting the exact shape of the Batmobile. It took months of research and development to create this masterpiece of 512 components - 115 for the bodywork and 397 for the movement - where every detail has been meticulously thought-about. In comparison, a traditional mechanical movement usually bears 130 components.
Live the Batman experience one minute at a time.
The whole piece is made of the finest materials - carefully selected for their technical properties and refinement. The bodywork in black aluminium composite, with aeronautical grade scratch protection coating, magnificently shapes the 1989 Batmobile, reproducing the same curves and proportions. Even the wheels are spinning!
Only a few variations were envisioned to please the owner’s eyes and allow him a better experience, such as the smoked windows with a lighter taint to enable a subtle glimpse of the movement through the window.
Hours and minutes are displayed horizontally by two cylinders. Batman experts will appreciate reading the time on the top of the clock through bat-like cowl decals. The vertical regulator is highlighted through the turbine at the front of the car.
An outstanding power reserve of 30 days.
Kross Studio has equipped the Batmobile with its own powerful engine: an in-house mechanical manual-winding movement with an exceptional power reserve of 30 days. Three barrels were added to achieve this performance. Furthermore, it runs at a frequency of 21’600 beats per hour or 3 Hz - granting even more precision to the movement while the most common mechanical clock movements operate at 2.5 Hz.
A Batman-shaped key in satin-finished and mirror-polished steel is included to wind the clock and set the time. All of these features provide an endless wonder when contemplating this Batmobile work of art.
This exclusive collectible is produced in a limited edition of 100 numbered pieces.
