The RJ ARRAW Spider-Man watch collection has now launched in the U.S. at an event held on October 18 at Watches of Switzerland Soho in New York City. The watches were created in partnership with Disney and Marvel and capture the iconic superhero throughout the intricate and thorough design. And just in time for the holidays.
The ARRAW Spider-Man is a 100-piece limited series and retails at $20,000. It features a skeleton movement in the shape of a spider web, manufactured at the R.J. Studio. The open-worked dial, arrow-shaped hands, and red lacquered Spider-Man second hand are at the center of this work of art.
The ARRAW Spider-Man Tourbillon in either red for $97,000 or black for $92,000 is limited to 10-pieces each. The hands of the watch have been shaped to imitate the legs of the legendary spider icon. The winding mechanism can last up to 150 hours – more than six days. The watch straps have the texture of the superhero’s suit, by being made of black polyamide.
