The Death Star™ Central Tourbillon watch

The first watch ever presented by Kross Studio, the Death Star Central Tourbillon embraced the challenge of incorporating a central tourbillon, a rare and intricate mechanical complication inspired to the iconic Death Star space station.

KS 7'000 caliber

Conceived by Marco Tedeschi, the KS 7'000 caliber stems from a desire to craft a horological complication with a notable power reserve. Equipped with an impressive oversized barrel, only the center of the movement could accommodate the regulator and the tourbillon, uniting form and function. 

This grants the Death Star Central Tourbillon a power reserve of over 120 hours and a unique design thanks to the position of its components.

Death Star-shaped tourbillon cage

The mesmerizing tourbillon cage, symbolizing the northern hemisphere of the Death Star, completes one revolution per minute. 
Adorning the surface of the Death Star-inspired tourbillon cage is a green super-laser cannon, reminiscent of the space station's kyber crystal-powered might. 

The intricate crafting of each Death Star-shaped tourbillon cage demanded an impressive 260,328 lines of code, leading to 483 operations on cutting-edge high-technology machines.

An Empire-inspired dial

The fixed hour wheel, placed between the rehaut and the tourbillon cage, adopts the design of the corridors of the Death Star, composed of illuminated panels with rounded rectangular shapes.

Peripheral time display

Like the powerful battle station itself, the Death Star Central Tourbillon masterpiece of 281 components highlights notable technical innovations, such as its hands, which are affixed to a peripheral display that orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon. A 12-factor gear ratio allows the planetary minutes system to empower the progression of the hours. In order to optimize the movement’s efficiency as much as possible, the hour and minute display system is fixed on two very wide and high-precision ball bearings. 

The hour hand embodies an Imperial-Class Star Destroyer, the bane of the rebellion, while the minute hand appears as a Super-Class Star Destroyer, one of the most powerful Empire vessels. 

Each hand has been engineered and finish in Kross Studio ateliers.

45mm titanium case

Made from black DLC-coated grade 5 titanium in Kross Studio ateliers, the 45mm case exemplifies the pinnacle of Swiss design and engineering, showcasing precision and excellence in every detail. 

A specially designed dome-shaped sapphire crystal has also been meticulously crafted to elegantly encase the Death Star tourbillon cage, along with its vibrant green super-laser.

Case back

On the back of the case, the Studio's signature cross emblem is delicately emphasized on the barrel bridge. The fully skeletonized design provides a deep insight into the meticulously detailed components, showcasing wheels adorned with the Empire logo.

Interchangeable straps

Every Kross Studio timepiece is equipped with an interchangeable strap system, allowed by two quick-release buttons placed on the underside of the case. This practical feature will allow a change of straps with one simple click, from the included calfskin leather strap to either of the two other included rubber straps.

Kyber crystal container

The powerful and precious nature of the crystals required their storage in armored crates during transportation. Staying true to the film's narrative, the container diligently protects the valuable components within. the Death Star Central Tourbillon watch, its three sets of straps, and the kyber crystal movie-prop are securely housed in an authentic reproduction of the iconic orange containers employed by the Galactic Empire. 

More than 700 parts were necessary to produce each container, scaled to half the original film dimensions of 3.94 feet long (1.20 meters). Fully hand-assembled and hand-painted, the containers embody the iconic saga story down to the smallest detail.

An immersive visual experience

Every aspect of these substantial art objects, like fine sculptures, have been thoroughly conceptualized and executed with immersive details.

The container is intricately divided into nine storage units. Three interior sections are dedicated to securing three removable capsules. Meanwhile, the remaining six free storage spaces within the crate provide ample room for collectors to house their personal Star Wars collectibles and ephemera, all safeguarded by a removable top cover.

The capsules

The three capsules contain the Death Star Central Tourbillon watch, two additional straps and the original kyber crystal movie prop.

The kyber crystal

This marks the first time that authentic kyber crystal props has been released to the public as part of Kross Studio ultimate collector set and are an opportunity for die-hard fans to own a piece of the fascinating Star Wars galaxy.
