Following the success of their previous launch in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Kross Studio celebrates the upcoming animated/live-action Space Jam: A New Legacy with a new piece that collectors will fight for.
The Swiss design studio created a high-end sophisticated watch and a functional art object merging four fascinating worlds: basketball, horology, art, and Looney Tunes. Once again Kross Studio demonstrates its performance and technical prowess in every element of these Collector Sets, balanced by the playful nostalgia of Looney Tunes iconography.
The Kross team developed a wristwatch that embodies the precision and sporty style of the basketball world while demonstrating their own dominance as one of the leading design startups and independent watchmakers in the game today.
A 45mm titanium case with a sapphire crystal dome houses the entire scene, exalting the unique horology savoir-faire of Kross Studio. The mechanical hand-wound movement, equipped with an oversized barrel that can deliver a 5-day power reserve is placed in the center of the movement. The fully skeletonized design provides a deeper look at the highly detailed components, such as the wheels that have been styled as basketballs.
The central tourbillon cage towers over the piece, covered with an open-work basketball-like structure that reveals its regulator below. Each of the watch’s 281 parts have been hand-made to offer the ultimate fine-tuned finish.
The watch comes along with a functional art piece, a stand-alone design object: the Kross Studio B-BALL. Like the timepiece, it also celebrates basketball culture and “Space Jam: A New Legacy.” Designed and engineered by Kross Studio, the sculpture takes the form of a basketball, crafted in wood and aluminum.
Once again Kross Studio proves that pop culture and horology can collaborate without any gimmicks. Their product is a stunning example of innovation and creativity.
