Recently I shared a couple of very cool DC Comics-themed interactive smartwatches perfect for any fans of Batman or The Flash. They were definitely some very dope superhero-themed timepieces.
However, when it comes to dope superhero-themed timepieces, I may have just found the best one yet – even more so if you happen to be a big fan of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Behold the RJ x Spider-Man timepiece by Swiss watch maker Romain Jerome.
Nice, right? In fact, it’s so nice that Romain Jerome only made 75 of them and the price tag to own one is CHF 18,950 ($20,265 in US Dollars).
For the specs on this epic Spider-Man watch, we go to the experts at WatchTime…
The watch comes in Romain Jerome’s round “Skylab” case, with the four stylized “paws” at the corners, made of black PVD-coated stainless steel and measuring a super-heroic 48 mm in diameter. In the center of the opeworked dial is a spider-shaped appliqué familiar to fans of Peter Parker’s wall-crawling alter ego, made of sandblasted black chrome and hand-filled with red lacquer, held to the front of the skeletonized movement by two screws. Sweeping over the eye-catching arachnid symbol are Romain Jerome’s familiar arrow-tipped hands, made of satin-brushed nickel and coated with a “blue emission” Super-LumiNova.
The skeletonized, manual-winding Caliber RJ004-M that powers the Skylab Spider-Man features the black-chromed, three-layer, straight-lined design that has been a hallmark of Romain Jerome watches, with its balance wheel visible on the front side. The movement has a power reserve of 48 hours and a frequency of 28,800 vph, and its rear side is visible through a sapphire window in the black PVD caseback, underneath a metallized spiderweb pattern on the sapphire’s surface. The case, with a screw-locked crown helping ensure a water-resistance of 30 meters, is attached to a black rubber strap with a black PVD-coated folding clasp.
Now that… is a watch worthy of a webslinger.
Oh yeah, Romain Jerome also created a Batman watch awhile back that was most definitely deserving of The Dark Knight.
