Jaeger-LeCoultre and Batman: The Bat Watch Rises

Jul 26, 2012

Seventeen years ago when Val Kilmer played the role as Bruce Wayne is where Batman first put on a Jaeger-LeCoultre (Batman Forever – 1995). At that time Jaeger-LeCoultre had released a limited Reverso Grande Taille with the Batman logo engraved and lacquered on its case-back. In 2005 in Batman begins, Christian Bale who now plays Bruce Wayne is wearing a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Taille. With the recent release of The Dark Knight Rises, Jaeger-LeCoultre still continues the association with the Batman franchise with Christian Bale is wearing the Reverso Grande Date.

To commemorate its long association to Batman and its final chapter of the trilogy, Jaeger-LeCoultre has released a very limited edition version of the Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute 1931. This limited edition Reverso is housed in a steel case and features the modernized rendition of the Batman logo engraved and lacquered on its case-back and only visible when it is reversed to utilize its Bat-Shield technology to protect its dial. It is said that this watch is unclear if they will be produced commercially but this watch and the original worn by Val Kilmer will be able to be seen at the specialty Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques in Geneva, London, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong.

While most of us aren’t Batman, you can be as close to Bruce Wayne as possible with your own Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece which can be viewed on our Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece page. And if you are Batman and you must have the logo engraving just remember that we specialize in custom engravings and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso has a great feature to be personalized so you can have your very own Bat-watch.
