MARVEL Studios chose RJ to create Haute Horlogerie watches inspired by the amazing Spider-Man. The second MARVEL collaboration timepiece created by RJ, the new ARRAW Spider-Man Tourbillon, channels Spider-Man’s iconic style through every component.
The launch also marks RJ’s first movement manufactured completely in-house. In a first for the Swiss watchmaker, the highly innovative Spider-Man inspired central tourbillon movement was developed and produced wholly in-house at RJ Studio in Eysins, located on the shores of Lake Geneva.
The young RJ Studio team represents a new wave of watchmaking focused on developing and manufacturing timepieces notable as much for their technical originality as their unparalleled aesthetics and cultural relevance. These unconventional watches excite the interest of comics and superhero fans as well as watch enthusiasts.
Marco Tedeschi, CEO and Creative Director of RJ comments: “It was a pleasure for us to work closely with the team at MARVEL Studios, who has put its trust in our hands for the creation and development of our first complicated watch designed in honor of Spider-Man. For the first time, a character and his universe inspired us not only in the aesthetics, but also in the technicality of the movement. And it is no coincidence that we have chosen a tourbillon: light, rapid and ethereal. Its increased power reserve of more than six days makes a fitting tribute to Spider-Man's own endurance and performance.”
