Batman's watch

poster1a.JPG

When we discovered the cost of being Bruce Wayne is a staggering £440,107,200 (proof), our dreams of becoming the Dark Knight were shattered forever. Then we discovered Batman's watch.

Behold, Bruce Wayne's timepiece. Predictably, it's not just any watch, it's a special-edition Reverso Grande Date chronograph created by Jaeger-LeCoultre, which Christian Bale wears in The Dark Knight Rises.

The watch was created so the wearer could flip the front over to stop scratches to the face. With this particular version the "Bat-Shield" is visible when it's reversed and the Batman logo is engraved and lacquered on its solid case-back. While the price is not known for this edition, a similar Reverso could set you back more than £4,500.

The world-renowned watchmakers first designed the piece 17 years ago for Batman Forever, although the less said about Val Kilmer and co, the better.

Jaeger-LeCoultre will display the original Reverso in its Geneva, London, Los Angeles, and Hong-Kong boutiques this month.
