Swiss Watchmaker RJ Celebrates Batman’s 80th Anniversary
Swiss watchmaker RJ marked the 80th anniversary of Batman’s debut with a special event held at the newly opened Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées concept store in Paris. The event started on September 2nd and will run through September 22nd.
During this event, DC fans and Comic Geek Fans of all backgrounds will get to experience RJ’s new collaboration watches created with DC Comics to celebrate two of the Dark Knight’s greatest nemeses: ARRAW Two-Face and ARRAW The Joker. RJ combines high-horology and iconic DC characters for luxury meets geek experience that is profoundly the epitome of collaboration.
ARRAW The Joker
The Joker chronograph, limited to only 100 pieces, is inspired by the criminal mastermind and perfectly reproduces the aesthetic of the comic strip Super-Villain. Immediately distinguishable thanks to the iconic rubber RJ BUMPERS™ and neatly shaped lugs, the 45 mm ARRAW case is crowned by a titanium bezel that is laser engraved with an intentionally chaotic The Joker motif. The ARRAW hands are also uniquely stylized with playing card “Aces” at their tips. The back of the titanium case features a bold laser-engraved portrait of the Joker himself. Every Joker watch comes with three interchangeable straps.
The Two-Face watch, limited to only 100 pieces, is a remarkable interpretation of the complex and conflicted villain and former Gotham City district attorney who was once one of Batman’s biggest allies, now turned nemesis. The half-exposed manual skeleton movement sits within a circular, satin-brushed 45 mm titanium ARRAW case sporting the iconic features of RJ watches, including the four RJ BUMPERS™ made of rubber, contrasting lugs, and arrow-shaped hands
