RJ Arraw Spider-Man Tourbillon

Post by koimaster » October 28th 2019, 9:33am

Swiss independent watch brand RJ (previously known as Romain Jerome) have again partnered with Marvel Studios for a new limited edition Spider-Man watch (you may recall the one from last year, this time in the form of the Arraw Spider-Man Tourbillon. Unlike the previous model, this new watch is not mostly focused on spider motif, but it features the brand’s first in-house movement, developed and made at the new RJ Studio in Eysin, on the shores of Lake Geneva. RJ’s first in-house caliber features a central spiderweb-inspired tourbillon cage.

The new manual-wind RJ caliber RJ-7000 has 29 jewels, beats at 21,600VPH and has a power reserve of six days. RJ had wanted a long power reserve, so the large mainspring barrel has to be placed at the centre of the movement to accommodate it The tourbillon cage is directly above the centred barrel and on the same axis. Made from grade 5 titanium, the tourbillon cage, along with its going wheel train, has an open-worked design (in keeping with the spider theme). You will also notice that it is flanked by two Spider-Man mask eye openings that are affixed to the mainplate.
