Jacob & Co. and Warner Bros. have signed a partnership deal to produce a new collection of Batman-inspired timepieces based on the DC comic book character.
The first watches from the collaboration are expected to launch in Spring 2022.
Batman joins a number of partnerships with Hollywood studios that includes Universal Studio and Paramount.
“Adding Warner Bros. to the Jacob & Co. roster is a dream come true,” says Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co.
Mr Arabo says his team reached out to Warner Bros. early this year and the partnership came together quickly because of “undeniable chemistry” between the teams.
He will be personally designing the new themed timepieces. “Batman is one of the most iconic superhero characters of all time and has a natural connection to Jacob & Co. and the watches and jewels we create. I’m beyond excited. I am personally designing a completely new watch collection with new movements and new complications,” Mr Arabo promises.
“At its core, Jacob & Co.’s DNA is also filled with audacity and innovation. The two brands both represent the highest form of artistry in their respective field,” Mr Arabo concludes.
