A new custom watch from Undone allows you to code and decode messages in Kryptonian. Feel like Superman even without the cape.
Watch manufacturer, Undone, has teamed up with DC/Warner Bros. for a timepiece with a twist, literally. Their new watch not only tells the time but also allows the wearer to code and decode messages in Kryptonian, the language of Superman, Kal-El’s, home planet. A simple twist of the bezel reveals reveals the ability to send and receive secret messages.
The idea behind the concepts harks back to the Superman of America Club. Between 1940 and 1961 fans could mail off 10 cents. In return they would receive a certificate, a button badge and a secret message from Superman’s home planet of Krypton. With a key the messages could be decoded.
Undone’s ‘Superman: The Kryptonian Decryptor’ watch embraces this idea and incorporates it into a one-of-a-kind timepiece.
Each watch is carefully crafted with components that tie back to Superman lore. The watch is assembled in a casing constructed from sandblasted and PVD coated gunmetal. Finished to resemble the armour worn by General Zod in ‘Man of Steel’. The face of the watch has a metallic quality reminiscent of a meteor. Meanwhile there are subtle hints of Superman’s hero colours and a small metal ‘S’ logo on the face. The rear of the watch carries a laser engraved transliteration chart of the Kryptonian-English alphabet.
