Swiss watchmaker RJ is well-known for its collaboration watches, often takes iconic elements of pop culture and channels them into its watch designs. RJ again joined forces with Warner Bros. Consumer Products for the RJ X BATMAN VILLAINS collection, built on the global success of the first Batman watch collaboration in 2014. RJ channeled its dark side with the RJ X BATMAN VILLAINS, launched for the 80th anniversary of Batman in 2019. Limited to only 100 pieces per series, both the ARRAW The Joker and ARRAW Two-Face are the first collaboration watches to be presented in RJ's iconic ARRAW watch case, designed to delight both comic book lovers, super fans, and watch enthusiasts.
The Joker chronograph is inspired by the criminal mastermind and perfectly reproduces the aesthetic of the comic strip Super-Villain. Design cues from his flamboyant character appear through the watch, from his lethal razor-tipped playing cards to his striking facial make-up. The dial is a stylistic reinterpretation of The Joker’s face, with an intricately airbrushed finish that evokes the make-up of the Gotham villain.
Immediately distinguishable thanks to the iconic rubber RJ BUMPERS™ and neatly shaped lugs, the 45 mm ARRAW case is crowned by a titanium bezel that is laser engraved with an intentionally chaotic The Joker motif. The ARRAW hands are also uniquely stylized with playing card “Aces” at their tips. The back of the titanium case features a bold laser-engraved portrait of the Joker himself.
Every Joker watch comes with three interchangeable straps. Two are colorful alligator skin versions in bright green or purple with contrast stitching to match the Joker’s hair and clothing, accompanied by a third strap in black rubber. They can be easily swapped by simultaneously pressing on the Batman logo-engraved screws on the watch lugs. Each colorway is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide, and each watch issued in the collectors’ edition also comes with an exclusive deck of The Joker playing cards.
