Spider-Man is turning 60 in style thanks to a partnership between Citizen and Marvel. They've joined forces to create a limited edition watch as part of the Beyond Amazing global campaign, which celebrates the milestone with new products, experiences, and more. Only 1,962 Citizen's Spider-Man 60th Anniversary Timepieces will be made in honor of the character's first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 from Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko.
The watch features a 43 mm stainless steel case with a blue/red aluminum ring and PU strap in addition to the detailed image of Spider-Man in his classic pose; encircling him with the phrase "Beyond Amazing" etched on the case back. The design also includes a blue 3-hand dial with Spider-Man surrounded by his classic webbing as well as the anniversary dates of 1962-2022. In addition to the watch, the set will also include two Spider-Man pins and a limited edition card.
Pre-orders for The Spider-Man's 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Citizen Watch Box Set opened up here at the Citizen Watch website today August 1st at 8am EST (5am PST) priced at $425. When it sells out, odds are you'll be able to find it here on eBay.
In addition to the Citizen Watch, Funko has been all over the Spider-Man Beyond Amazing campaign with a Sinister 6 set and a collection of standalone Pop figures. You can shop more Beyond Amazing gear here on Amazon.
