“You don’t know the power of the dark side”
The functional sculpture takes direct inspiration from the iconic TIE Advanced x1 starfighter, famously piloted by the formidable Lord Darth Vader in the cinematic masterpiece Star Wars: A New Hope. Distinguished by its enhanced cockpit capacity, the Advanced x1 stood apart from other TIE models, a design choice made to accommodate the larger-than-average figure of Darth Vader.
The TIE Advanced x1 winder captures the essence of both the starfighter's distinctive design and its association with the Dark Lord of the Sith.
A fully operational sculpture
Kross Studio sets its watch winder apart by elevating it to the status of a fully operational art object, skillfully fusing the winding engine with an exquisitely crafted solid aluminum sculpture.
The TIE Advanced x1 watch winder is meticulously fashioned from solid black anodized aluminum. Each piece undergoes a process of precision machining, followed by meticulous hand-finishing.
The result is a stunning and intricate work of art that seamlessly marries form and function, embodying the essence of the iconic TIE Advanced x1 starfighter from the Star Wars universe.
Design & functionality
The winding engine, among the most robust commercial watch winders available today, channels the strength of its powerful movement to uphold the mechanism of any automatic mechanical watch housed within its winding capsule.
High technology system
In a clever innovation, the Kross Studio TIE Advanced x1-inspired watch winder sculpture is equipped with an infrared sensor that detects the presence of a watch, activating the winder accordingly. In the absence of a watch, the device seamlessly transitions into standby mode to conserve power. With a battery life that exceeds two years, this watch winder ensures long-lasting functionality.
The watch winder also comes with a Galactic Empire-inspired key to replace the batteries.
A connected collectible
The Bluetooth interface provides owners with access to all parameters through a dedicated smartphone application, Kross Watch Winder, available on both the App Store and Google Play.
This feature enables users to customize optimal settings for their automatic watches, allowing precise adjustments to the rotation direction, rotation duration, and load control.
