Each set is uniquely numbered and each watch is etched with the edition number on the case-back. In honor of Batman's 75th anniversary as the protector of Gotham City, we proudly present "The Ultimate Batman 75th Year Limited Edition Watch Set". Showcasing eight unique designs in a beautiful Batman 75th year motif box that opens like a book; this set includes Batman depicted from the four eras of comic book history as well as the four incarnations of the famed superhero.

The 8 watches as presented in the box set; from left to right; represent Batman from the Modern Age, the Bronze Age, the Silver Age, and the Golden Age. On October 9, 2014 the United States Post Office released the first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony for the Limited Edition Forever Batman Stamp Collection Set and kicked off New York Comic Con 2014. This stamp set inspired us to collaborate on this watch set that features the Caped Crusader from artistically distinct periods across his comic book history, exhibiting the evolution of the Dark Knight over the past seven-and-a-half decades. These watches are inspired by each of the 8 stamps and will be a perfect collector's item for Batman fans, watch aficionados, and stamp collectors alike.

"Over the past 75 years Batman has captured the imagination of fans around the world - from comic books to television, film, video games and beyond," said Jim Lee, renowned comic book artist and co-publisher of DC Entertainment. "Today Batman is more relevant than ever and his popularity continues to expand, reaching the generations to come in the next 75 years and beyond." Four versions of the iconic DC Comics super hero are depicted from four eras of comic book history in the square-shaped watches. In addition, there are four incarnations of the Bat-Signal depicted in the round-shaped Swatch-like minimalist watches. The watches from left to right as presented in the box; watches 1 and 2 of the set features Batman with his fists clenched.

This muscular, determined Caped Crusader has spent the Modern Age of Comics defending Gotham City from its most notorious villains. Watches 3 and 4 displays Batman dramatically staring up at the Bat-Signal. By the Bronze Age of Comics, artists had encased the super hero's spare black bat emblem with a yellow oval. The insignia became the crime fighter's trademark. Watches 5 and 6 then shows Batman swooping into the frame with his cape flying behind him. The image, from the Silver Age of Comics, accentuates the super hero's signature glowing white eyes and utility belt. Lastly, watches 7 and 8, highlights Batman as first envisioned by creator Bob Kane during the Golden Age of Comics. The super hero's black cape and cowl and gray suit formed his iconic visual identity.
