BATMAN’S REVERSO DRAWS AUCTION SALE

One of the five 18k gold Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches made to commemorate the watch’s use in the film Batman Forever fetched $9,000 in a recent auction at Christie’s in New York, N.Y.

Two of the watches were given to star Val Kilmer and Joel Schumacher, who directed the movie.The remaining three were raffled off at special screenings in the U.S. and used as prizes in a sweepstakes that drew entries from Europe, Australia and Asia. One of these prize winners decided to trade it in for a Christie’s cash prize instead.

The company also made 40 versions with the “Batman” logo etched in stainless steel.
