So... Who wants a $20,000 Spiderman watch?

Got a thing for excessively expensive timepieces? Then, this may be for you!

The watch is marketed like this:

In collaboration with MARVEL and limited to 75 pieces, the RJ x Spider-Man timepiece pays tribute to a true generational symbol, a pop icon with an ever-growing fandom.

The experts at WatchTime took the time to lay out some specs:

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.
