Joker is the movie on everyone’s lips right now – and fans of the film and the character can now get their hands on a limited edition Joker themed watch.
Swiss watchmaker RJ has joined forces with Warner Bros. Consumer Products for the new RJ X BATMAN VILLAINS collection, building on the global success of the first Batman watch collaboration in 2014.
The collection includes timepieces based on both The Joker and his fellow legendary Batman villain Two-Face, memorably portrayed by Aaron Eckhart in 2008’s The Dark Knight.
Limited to only 100 pieces per series, both the ARRAW The Joker and ARRAW Two-Face are the first collaboration watches to be presented in an ARRAW watch case, designed to delight both comic book lovers and watch enthusiasts.
The Joker chronograph is inspired by the criminal mastermind, taking design cues from his flamboyant character including his lethal razor-tipped playing cards and striking facial make-up.
The dial is a stylistic reinterpretation of The Joker’s face, with an intricately airbrushed finish that evokes the make-up of the Gotham villain.
The 45 mm ARRAW case is crowned by a titanium bezel that is laser engraved with an intentionally chaotic motif.
The ARRAW hands are also uniquely stylized with playing card “Aces” at their tips, while the back of the titanium case features a bold laser-engraved portrait of the Joker himself.
Every Joker watch comes with three interchangeable straps; two are colorful alligator skin versions in bright green or purple with contrast stitching to match the Joker’s hair and clothing, accompanied by a third strap in black rubber.
As part of the collectors’ edition, each watch comes with an exclusive deck of The Joker playing cards.
The Two-Face watch uses a skeleton movement and distressed design cues to “evoke the twisted physical and mental state of the crazed criminal.”
The left-hand side of the watch is clean and structured, while on the right side, the three-layer skeleton movement is exposed to show the inner workings of the watch.
RJ Watches CEO and creative director Marco Tedeschi, said: “It is a statement of confidence in RJ’s place in both popular culture and watchmaking that Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have collaborated with us to bring their most infamous villains to life as rare, limited edition collectors’ watches.
“The villains of the DC Comics universe have always appealed to audiences around the world for their evil brilliance and ability to shock and thrill in equal measure. We believe that our first two DC Comics Villains watches will be a fitting tribute to their spirit of anarchy and disruption.”
