This 1989 Batman Batmobile Desk Clock Takes Bruce Wayne Money to Buy

Switzerland based design firm Kross Studio has teamed up with Warner Bros. to create this 1989 Batmobile X Kross Studio Desk Clock. Limited to 100 pieces, the desk clock costs a staggering $29,900. Even already knowing how much it cost I couldn’t stop myself from doing another spit-take as I typed that.

The timepiece, modeled after the Batmobile in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, consists of 512 individual components, with 115 making up the Batmobile’s body and 397 in the clock’s movement. For reference, a traditional mechanical movement is typically only around 130 components. This is 267 more components! What do all those extra components do? Can it time travel? We may never know because we don’t have $29,900 to spend on a fancy Batmobile desk clock that may or may not be able to time travel.

I actually went to the purchase page and it appears there are only nine Batmobiles available at the moment. That means they’ve already sold 91 of them – $2,720,900 worth! Clearly, we’re in the wrong business. Now, let’s launch a Kickstarter for a $35,000 1989 Batwing wall clock.
