Swiss watchmaker RJ will take part in Batman’s 80th anniversary celebrations in the newly opened Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées concept store in Paris. From the 2nd to the 22nd of September, fans will have the opportunity to meet two of the Dark Knight’s greatest nemeses under a new light with RJ’s collaboration watches with DC, ARRAW Two-Face and ARRAW The Joker — and live to tell the tale. Creating the RJ X BATMAN VILLAINS collection came as a natural next step: after all, Batman's reason for being is protecting Gotham City from Super-Villains.
By joining forces with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, RJ combines high-horology and iconic DC characters. This time, RJ channeled its dark side with the RJ X BATMAN VILLAINS. This collection was built on the global success of the previous Batman watches, the tour de force from the first collaboration between RJ and Warner Bros. Consumer Products dating back to 2014 for the 75th anniversary of Batman. Each limited to only 100 pieces, both the ARRAW The Joker and ARRAW Two-Face are the first collaboration watches to be presented in an ARRAW watch case.
“It is always exciting to combine high-horology and iconic concepts of pop culture, and to bring Super Heroes and infamous Super-Villains to life,” confides Marco Tedeschi, CEO and Creative Director of RJ. “The Super-Villains of the DC Universe have always appealed to audiences around the world for their evil brilliance and ability to shock and thrill. Joining Batman’s 80th anniversary celebrations in Paris with the RJ X BATMAN VILLAINS is the perfect occasion to honor the DC Comics hero.”
