Overall not a huge fan of superhero things anymore, probably too old now being closer to 40, than 30. However, I have to say the black version looks amazing, and absolutely cannot deny the phenomenal watch making prowess on display. Kudos to AP i say for doing something a bit more avant-garde

Not sure I get the concept with these. Looks to me like a young persons watch that young people can’t afford. Older collectors will buy them and it will look ridiculous on their wrists.
When i was a youngster a boss of mine said something to me which made me smile. He said, remember, by the time you can afford a Ferrari, you will look a …. in it!

Will leave you to fill in the word, his started with a c!

Royal oak concept tourbillon “spider‑man”

If I had 9 figures I would buy this merely because my 4 year old would be jazzed about it. I will hazard there’s a few buyers doing just that lol

Agreed! The black Spidey version is truly cool and amazing. Also, seeing short videos of the Spidey watch really highlights how good the 3D effect is, so must be awesome in person.

Third vote - the black spiderman piece unique looks amazing (pun intended). Not sure if $6.2M-fantastic, but definitely something that would be exciting for the $250-300k a regular LE might command.

I agree but enough people in sports /athletes to buy it - only 250 made and wealthy collectors that like Jacob and co stuff might buy this as well.

It’s a very cool touch having the feet go right through the watch. I enjoyed the you tube video link posted above.

Aesthetic wise, super ugly piece.
Marketing wise, probably genius piece.
My opinion? Would never buy it and if I did have the money / possibility to buy it, I would be ashamed to wear it.
