Kross Studio has followed up its debut Star Wars collaboration with a watch winder worthy of a Sith Lord.
The Kross Studio x Star Wars Tie Fighter Advanced X1 watch winder is a desktop reminder of Darth Vader’s ride of choice that can also store and keep any automatic watch fully wound.
The Swiss studio released a $150,000 USD Collector’s Set including a Death Star-themed Central Tourbillon along with Kyber Crystals movie props used in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, earlier this year.
The battery-powered winder is made of black anodized aluminum and weighs in at 4kg, while rotations and wait times can be configured via Bluetooth and a dedicated smartphone app.
It features an infrared sensor to detect the presence of a watch, allowing it to sit in standby for up to two years if no watch is present, while the battery hatch is accessed using a stainless steel “Galactic Empire” key.
The Star Wars Tie Fighter Advanced X1 watch winder is being offering by Kross Studio for a limited time, priced $2,500 USD.
