Colorful Leather Watch Rolls
Kross Studio Classic Colors Watch Rolls
Kross Studio has released a new series of classic leather watch rolls in an array of colors. Each roll offers the perfect balance of protection and upscale materials, classic styling, and practical functionality. The contrast-stitched, vegetable-tanned leather cases are available in a range of hues, from neutrals (tan, grey, black) and classic tones (navy blue, green, gold, baby pink) to highly saturated colors (royal blue, orange, red, yellow, turquoise).
The rigorously tested rolls offer unmatched protection and shockproofing for any wristwatch or smart watch, at home or abroad, thanks to a removable pillow insert, fine microfiber lining, and rigorously padded, stitched, and panel-reinforced case walls. Rolls can be stowed discreetly within a carry-on or dresser drawer or proudly displayed and stood upright thanks to the ‘legs’ on the bottom of each roll.
DC Comics Watch Rolls
Kross Studio and Warner Bros Consumer Products collaborated on a series of DC super heroes-inspired watch rolls ($250 USD each). The collection offers four distinct watch roll designs for individual sale, each featuring an iconic superhero of the DC universe: Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and the Flash.
Star Wars Watch Rolls
Kross Studio and Lucasfilm Ltd. have also partnered on a series of new functional collectibles: the Star Wars™-inspired watch rolls collection.
The series offers six distinct watch roll designs for individual sale, each featuring an iconic rebel or imperial character from the original space saga. Those who purchase the complete set of six will receive a special bonus watch roll featuring Yoda.
Collaborations and Fandom Inspired Collector Sets
Boba Fett Collector Set
Kross Studio strikes back with another Lucasfilm Ltd. collaboration, this time celebrating the legendary Star Wars bounty hunter, Boba Fett and the enigmatic bounty hunter’s series, “The Book of Boba Fett™,” available to stream on Disney+. Each of the ten limited-edition Boba Fett-inspired collector sets comes complete with a numbered, manual wound Boba Fett-inspired central tourbillon titanium timepiece and a replica watch display by EFX, inspired by Boba Fett’s famed starship.
In this creative timepiece, the tourbillon cage serves as a landing platform for a miniature starship, carefully crafted to resemble Boba Fett’s weathered firespray starship as it appears in Bespin at Cloud City in the Star Wars film saga. The hour hand was inspired by Boba Fett’s iconic jetpack and the minute hand by its rocket.
Each EFX Boba Fett™ starship watch display has been crafted to the same scale as the actual film model as seen in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™”, and each comes affixed on a wooden platform from Kross Studio that also resembles a ship landing pad.
Alain Silberstein Lotus Tourbillon
For the design-obsessed, a Kross Studio and Alain Silberstein collector set makes the gift of a lifetime. The famed designer approached the Swiss design firm to help bring his high horological vision to life: a lotus-inspired titanium timepiece that captures the essence of the sacred Asian flower, delivered in a unique and functional totemic art object. Only eighteen Lotus timepiece collector sets will ever be made.
A seemingly delicate titanium lotus flower floats atop the tourbillon cage and central regulator of the famous Kross Studio KS 7’000 caliber. The ephemeral, sacred lotus flower reminds the viewer that each passing moment is precious. Silberstein’s signature bold graphic style is artfully employed throughout the timepiece, heightened by Kross Studio’s ingenious technical flourishes such as the peripheral hour and minute display and a clever and intuitive D-ring winder on the case back. Silberstein’s visual language is also revealed in the totemic watch case that completes this collector’s set: a functional art object designed especially for this collaboration. The Lotus Tourbillon takes its place within a compartment that has been seamlessly integrated into the yellow cube ,between a blue triangle and red square.
The Batman Collector Set
Kross Studio, Warner Bros Consumer Products and DC Comics have collaborated to produce the ultimate Collector Set for fans of “The Batman.” Each “The Batman” Collector Set includes “The Batman” Tourbillon watch and an illuminated Bat-Signal-inspired art piece that functions both as a light and as a watch holder.
For these limited-edition collector sets, the Kross team developed a luxury titanium Bat-signal-inspired wristwatch. The Bat-Signal symbol actually rotates due to its position atop the rotating central tourbillon cage. The timepiece (or any other wristwatch of choice) can be stowed within the Kross Studio Bat-Signal art object and functional light.
