INSPIRED BY THE DEATH STARTM
Kross Studio has achieved a stunning and significant milestone within just months of the company’s official launch, collaborating with Lucasfilm on this brand-new Star Wars™-inspired set.
The release pays tribute to the iconic Star Wars space saga, creating a 10-piece series of Death Star-inspired Ultimate Collector Sets, for those who savor Star Wars history as much as high-end design objects. Crafted to the finest standards of Swiss design and engineering, this set is the perfect companion for collectors.
Own a piece of Cinematic History
Kross Studio brings the emblematic power of the Death Star to life as the imposing design details of the mobile space station and planet-destroying superweapon is featured as the cornerstone of this new collection. Each collectible set contains an official screen-used kyber crystal – the power source of the Death Star’s superlaser – as featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This marks the first time that authentic kyber crystal props will be 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.
An eminent design object with an immersive visual experience
The powerful and precious nature of the crystals required them to be stored in armored crates for transport. Faithful to the film storytelling, Kross Studio conceived an official reproduction of those containers, made of wood and aluminum.
Inside, the container is divided into nine storage units. Three interior sections secure three removable capsules, containing: the Death Star Tourbillon watch, three accompanying timepiece straps sets, and the genuine movie prop kyber crystal, as featured in the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The other 6 free storage spaces within the crate offer ample storage space for collectors to house their personal Star Wars collectibles and ephemera, secured within a removable top cover.
Inspired by the Death Star legacy
Kross Studio took up the challenge of the central tourbillon – a mechanical complication honoring the prominent Death Star. Featured in a 45 mm black DLC coated grade 5 titanium case, the captivating Death Star-inspired Tourbillon cage makes one revolution per minute. On the surface of the Death Star-inspired Tourbillon, a green superlaser cannon stands reminiscent of the space station’s kyber crystal enabled power. The Death Star-inspired Tourbillon watch itself tells us a great story of passion, craftsmanship and advanced technology.
Celebrate in our own Galaxy
Endlessly explore this beautiful design piece, where Star Wars iconography is subtly inserted to sublimate the whole, such as the esthetic Galactic Empire emblem and the push-button featuring an engraving in Aurebesh script – one of the most widely used alphabets in the Star Wars galaxy. Moreover, the hour hand takes the shape of an Imperial-Class Star Destroyer, the bane of the rebellion, while the minute hand appears as a Super-Class Star Destroyer, able to carry no less than 38,000 stormtroopers. At last, the fixed hours wheel, filled with white superluminova “blue emission”, is inspired by the lighting halls embedded in the Imperial vessels.
