Thus built on a proven library of more than 8,000 characters, Marvel Entertainment has been proudly featured in a variety of media over seventy-five years.
The ARRAW Spider-Man Tourbillon marks the brand’s first movement designed and produced entirely in-house by RJ Studio. The RJ-7000 is an exclusive tourbillon watch. The fully coaxial construction also features a unique peripheral display of the hours and minutes. In addition, to set the time, a concealed push button under the strap at 6 o’clock must be pressed while turning the hoop in either direction.
Four sapphire crystals on the case back allow maximum visibility of the movement. The ARRAW Spider-Man tourbillon is available in two versions. First, it comes in black carbon and red fiberglass composite. Next, the second hand is made entirely of black carbon. Finally, each version is limited to just 10 pieces.
Limited-edition ARRAW Spider-Man Carbon skeletonized watches are limited to only 100 pieces worldwide ($20,000 retail). In addition to these innovative tourbillon watches, RJ also launched the new open-worked mechanical ARRAW Spider-Man Carbon watches. They are limited to only 100 pieces worldwide.
The open-worked model integrates visual cues from the universe of Spider-Man. Therefore it includes a skeleton movement that is shaped like a spider web. Also, it features a red lacquered spider as the small second, and a highly durable black carbon case. The timepiece comes paired with a high-tech black polyamide strap. It is imprinted with the Spider icon, designed to emulate the famed web-slinger’s stealth suit.
Each of the ARRAW Spider-Man timepieces come presented in a unique ARRAW watch box. The ARRAW watch box’s characteristic round shape has been customized with Spider-Man’s attributes for this special limited-edition. This time, the watches are presented in black wood, engraved with Spider-Man’s logo and web.
Like the super-hero and arachnid that inspired the series, the box perches atop eight metal spider legs that are permanently affixed to its side. Within, the ARRAW Spider-Man watche appears as if captured in a steel spider’s web. The box’s web-insert is removable allowing the packaging to be repurposed and enjoyed as desired.
RJ has made its own mark on modern watchmaking with its Collaboration watch series. They draw inspiration from icons of pop culture, from superheroes of DC Comics or Marvel like Batman and Spider-Man. Plus, they draw from beloved video game characters like Super Mario Bros., Space Invaders™, or Pac-Man™.
RJ has brought history-making material to the wrist with its DNA Concept watches. These watches use steel from the Titanic, genuine moon dust, or remnants from the Apollo 11 spacecraft, which first landed man on the moon. The watch brand was founded in 2004 and re-launched in 2018 under the creative direction of CEO Marco Tedeschi. Ever since, RJ proudly manufactures its own in-house movements at the brand’s headquarters, RJ Studio, based out of Geneva, Switzerland.
