First Ever Citizen Marvel Timepieces Unveiled At New York Comic Con
For the first time ever Citizen Watch made its presence known at New York Comic Con. In celebration of the brand’s collaboration with Marvel, This month Citizen took the opportunity to unveil eight Marvel timepieces. These amazing timepieces are inspired by some of Marvel’s most popular Avengers: Black Panther, Spider-Man, Captain America, and the Hulk.
Citizen kicked off the show on Thursday evening with actor, comedian and YouTube sensation, Josh Peck. Josh officially unveiled the timepieces and acted as the brand’s Comic Con representative throughout the weekend.
Starting the collection, Citizen unveiled two Black Panther timepieces both including a Wakandan-inspired tribal pattern on the dials. They also feature sharp silver indexes and hands, reminiscent of the pendants on T’Challas necklace. Furthermore, with the violet accents on the dials, strap-back and case, Citizen pays homage to the energy emitted from his suit. Lastly, the timepieces are complete with custom case backs featuring an etched mask detailing and Marvel logo.
Citizen went on to admire the rich comic history of all Marvel Super Heroes with one watch featuring panel artwork on the dial with vintage comics in a navy hue. One other Avengers timepiece is specifically inspired by the unity of the heroes, as they are strongest when they work as a team. Featuring the iconic ‘A’ logo in the center of the dial in a gold hue, the piece is predominantly black with red and gold accents evocative of the character costumes. Also, both finished case backs display the signature Marvel logo.
Citizen created two Spider-Man centric timepieces featured in his iconic red and blue colors. They both feature emphasis on his spectacular web design. The first version is a stainless steel chronograph bracelet. It also has the modern Spider-Man logo placed inside one of the chronograph sub-dials. Finally, the second version is on a black rubber strap with the Spider-Man logo at the 12 o’clock position and a white web spread across the dial.
Citizen proudly recognizes Captain America’s dedication to his country first. When designing the timepiece, the brand paid tribute to the character with his symbolic shield and ‘A’ insignia. The strap also has camouflage detailing, recalling his history as a soldier in WWII. Also, inside the inner zone of the dial is a featured 24 hour military time track.
Lastly, the Hulk’s undeniable force highlighted on one new timepiece features his famous Hulk ‘smash’ element. The dial features oversized Arabic numerals highlighted in green. They also have a heavy Buffalo grain strap that reflects the Hulk’s larger than life character.
The prices of the timepieces are between $275 – $625.
