In 2021, Audemars Piguet (AP) introduced the world to a remarkable and collaborative timepiece; the first-ever Royal Oak Concept x Marvel watch. It was a sensational creation dedicated to the Black Panther. The Royal Oak presented with the fictional character appearing to elevate above the dial in 3D.
This extraordinary watch captures the attention of enthusiasts and collectors alike, resulting in a unique timepiece going out in an auction for a staggering 5.2 million dollars. The resounding success of this collaboration is a germinator of the next edition Marvel collaboration; the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Spider-Man Spider-Man Tourbillon.

Recently, Audemars Piguet released, to the enthusiastic audience in Dubai, its second Marvel-inspired watch. This time, the superhero on the timepiece is everyone’s beloved Spider-Man.
Just like its predecessor, the Royal Oak Concept Spider-Man Tourbillon showcased the Marvel character seemingly suspended within the intricate case. The watch has a 42mm titanium case, surrounded by a black ceramic bezel and crown. What sets this timepiece apart is the superhero that’s carved from CNC-milled white gold and adorned with exquisite engravings and hand-painted details.
Powering this horologically sound rendition of the Royal Oak is the hand-wound, in-house Calibre 2974, providing 72 hours of power reserve. To enhance its versatility, the watch comes paired with a black and grey interchangeable rubber strap or a rubber strap in black and red, adding an extra touch of dynamism to the overall look.
The Royal Oak Concept Spider-Man Tourbillon is a very exclusive creation. It is limited to only 250 pieces worldwide. Priced at 195,000 Swiss francs (approx. $215,000), the meticulously detailed and inclusion of Spider-Man iconic elements make the watch a highly sought-after collector’s item.
