Take Out a Loan for this Batman-DNA Watch from Romain Jerome

We’ve been celebrating Batman 75 this year and for his 75th The Dark Knight has a new watch, courtesy of Romain Jerome.

Introducing a new legend to its Collaborations collection, RJ-Romain Jerome pays tribute to Gotham City’s Super Hero with a timepiece inspired by the Dark Knight: the Batman-DNA. Gotham City’s vigilante, Batman has become an international cultural icon characterized by his strength, intellect and will to fight evil. Batman is an enigmatic Super Hero who does not sport any super powers but relies on science, technology and his superior intellect to assuage his war against crime. First appearing in the comic book Detective Comics #27 featuring artwork by artist Bob Kane and a script by Bill Finger, Batman has evolved throughout the years, forging his double identity along the way.

RJ-Romain Jerome and Warner Bros. Consumer Products introduce the watch brand’s first Super Hero timepiece: the Batman-DNA. This exciting new collaboration puts forth one of today’s most recognized Super Heroes who is only human. It is this aspect of Batman’s personality that attracted Manuel Emch, CEO of RJ Watches: “I have always been a fan of Batman, his mysterious character and double identity is an exhaustible source of inspiration. He represents a duality between good and evil in a contemporary world.”

Inspired by Batman’s heroic personality, the aesthetics of the timepiece are an acknowledgment to the fantastic world that has been built around his character. Housed in a 46 mm black PVD-coated steel case, the black bezel has been machine-worked to showcase the bold and singular facets, recalling the angular contours of the “Batmobile.” The dial of the Batman-DNA mirrors the Gotham City Super Hero’s personality – raw, yet sophisticated. An eye-catching Batman emblem applique, lacquered in black, is placed at the center of the dial. The legendary “Bat-Signal”, shines at night thanks to an engraving, filled with black Superluminova, which outlines the hero’s famous symbol. The rest of the dial has undergone RJ-Romain Jerome’s special “rough” finish, giving the watch a dark and edgy look.

The RJ logo applique is placed at 12 o’clock, allowing each detail of the dial to stand out and amaze the wearer each time he looks at the watch. A black Hornback crocodile strap has also been added to the timepiece, resembling Batman’s avant-garde leather gear.

Additionally, an engraving of the Batman emblem can be found on the back of each watch, placed on a “rough” finished medallion, accentuating the darkness of the timepiece.

Limited to 75 pieces, the Batman-DNA celebrates the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary. After seven and a half decades of entertaining fans through comic books and films, Gotham City’s Super Hero is now a piece of wearable art on the wrist!

The price tag for this amazing watch won’t set you back if you’re Bruce Wayne, but if you have $18,500 this watch can be all yours. If you’re like me and can probably afford a swatch watch, I suggest not watching the video of the Batman DNA watch, because it’s amazing and you’re going to end out taking a loan for this bad boy here.

Can anyone loan me $18,499? I’ve got the $1!
