Kross Studio has created a 10-piece limited edition watch designed to look like the Death Star in the original 1977 Star Wars movie.
This is no kid’s watch. It is a high end complicated piece built around a central tourbillon that will appeal more to people that were teenagers in the seventies and are now enjoying the freedom and wealth of 30+ years at work.
It is on sale now for $150,000 for the full set.
Kross Studio is a Swiss manufacturer and designer founded in 2020 by a group of five entrepreneurs, each bringing decades of experience at the highest echelons of luxury and design for collectible objects.
The Death Star Tourbillon watch comes in a 45 mm black DLC-coated titanium case.
Its dial is built around a Death Star-inspired tourbillon cage that makes one revolution per minute.
The tourbillon is protected by a green laser cannon, the like of which was able to destroy entire planets in the movie.
It all runs from an in house-developed manual-winding mechanical movement with 5-day power reserve.
You tell the time using hands that are fixed to a peripheral display that orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon.
Along with the one-of-ten timepiece, owners will also get an authentic kyber crystal movie prop from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (kyber crystals power the Death Star’s weapons), with the whole package delivered in an Imperial kyber crystal container.
