At the start of Marvel’s Stark Week (August 9th to August 16 ), a series of events including live videos, trivia and tutorials that celebrate Marvel’s Tony Stark, AKA “Iron Man,” Citizen releases two Tony Stark ‘I Love You 3000’ watches.
One is a limited edition (1,500 pieces) with a rose gold-plated 43mm steel case and bracelet ($495). The second features a 43mm black-ion-plated ($350) steel case and bracelet. Both recreate the Tony Stark Mark I reactor on the dial in luminous detail.
Not only is Citizen launching the new watches during Stark Week, the watchmaker will today (August 11) sponsor a live Marvel event: How to Draw: Iron Man with Marvel’s Creative Director, Brian Crosby. Crosby will livestream on Marvel’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube a tutorial of how to draw the renowned Iron Man character.
Citizen notes that various aspects of the Marvel’s “Iron Man” series inspired the design of the dials on the new watches. The Iron Man mask is a prominent feature (at 12 o’clock) as is the inscription “Proof that Tony Stark Has a Heart,” printed around the inner dial ring.
Both watches shine with luminous hour, minute and second hands, the date at 3 o’clock, plus a case back etched with Stark’s signature and Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: End Game” logo. The watch is water resistant to fifty meters and is powered by Citizen’s light powered Eco-Drive technology.
