Marvel Collaborates with Audemars Piguet On Black Panther Watch
Marvel and Audemars Piguet have joined forces to debut the first of many Superhero-themed timepieces to come.
The new Royal Oak Concept “Black Panther” Flying Tourbillon is offered for approximately $161,824
On the new design the Black Panther is on the hour, minutes hands and the tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
The imposing figure, crafted in white gold, laser-carved and painted by hand takes up nearly the entire surface of the dial save for glimpses of laser-textured titanium bridges.
Crafting the detailed figure was no small task, requiring new tools to be created so it could be designed.
The volume and shape is cut in a white gold disc via CNC machining. The texture of the suit is carved out by laser.
The painting and engraving require 30 hours of work per piece. Four engravers four painters created 250 pieces.
