RJ Romain Jerome’s fondness for pop culture icons knows no boundaries, with the brand having produced watches featuring Batman, Super Mario Bros, and even Hello Kitty. And at SIHH 2018 Romain Jerome continues its appeal to well-off fanboys and girls, having just rolled out the first Marvel comics character wristwatch with the RJ x Spider-Man.
Featuring a bright red lacquered Spider-Man logo on the base plate, the watch also has a spiderweb “metallised” on the back, created by depositing metal onto the inside of the sapphire crystal back.
Below the superhero logo the sits the skeletonised movement, the hand-wound RJ004-M made by by movement specialist La Joux-Perret (which is now owned by Citizen of Japan). It is characterised by linear bridges and a vertical layout, with the skeletonised barrel at 12 o’clock and balance wheel at six.
The Spider-Man watch utilises the Skylab case, here in black PVD-coated steel and 48mm in diameter.
