Commissioner Gordon seems to have been been working overtime with his Bat Signal or the licensing department of Batman’s franchise owner Warner Bros. has had a particularly successful year.
Either way, you wait months for a Batman timepiece story to come along then two arrive on the same day.
First we heard from Jacob & Co., which will be launching high end complication watches based on DC’s Caped Crusader.
Secondly, Fossil has launched a limited edition gift set with a watch and several straps in classic DC comic book packaging.
Fossil’s offer is part of a wider range of accessories including a Batman backpack, key fob and stickers.
The steel watch comes in a 42mm black or gold steel case.
It has a silicon and steel strap reminiscent of Batman’s cape, and comes with four additional fabric straps printed with the superhero’s iconic graphics.
The black box set, limited to 2890 units, retails for $249 and the gold version (limited to 100 pieces) costs $309.
