We’ve already covered themed watches on the website (like Star Wars, Mickey Mouse, and Peanuts), and in this article we will introduce different watch brands that are inspired by characters from another popular pop culture brand: Marvel.
Marvel Comics, an American brand that was launched over 80 years ago, is a publisher of comics and other media and has thousands of characters created by the writers Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and many others. Dozens of characters have been part of successful films in the past decade and gained more fans, which has led to a huge merchandise industry: clothing, costumes, accessories, watches.
In the following, the Marvel-themed watches are divided into brands and links are provided, through which you can check or buy the technical data.
Citizen Marvel watches
Japanese watch brand Citizen has partnered with Marvel to make watches inspired by their superheroes. All watches are equipped with Citizens Eco-Drive technology, which does not require batteries as they are powered by any light.
Characters in the collection include Black Panther, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, The Hulk and Tony Stark. There are also models dedicated to The Avengers, Marvel Heroes, and a special watch dedicated to creator Stan Lee.
The Black Panther watch is inspired by the aesthetics of the film: on the dial there are tribal patterns from Wakandan with silver-colored index markings. The watch has an ion-coated stainless steel case with a black silicone strap and a mineral crystal. Purple accents can be seen on the three hands as well as on the crown. This model is waterproof up to 100 m.
A smaller model is the 37mm Citizen Captain Marvel watch with a stainless steel case and the gold star of the character. The dial has blue and gold-colored accents with Swarovski crystals.
One of the new models is dedicated to the man who started it all: Stan Lee. This limited commemorative war captivity! The Entertainment® Stan Lee® watch is a stainless steel watch with gold-colored accents and comic style fonts. Only 1,922 of them are available (the year Lee was born).

The brand’s watches also go beyond Stan Lee superhero creations. There is a watch inspired by The Punisher, a Marvel character created by writer Gerry Conway and artists John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru and first seen in the comics The Amazing Spider-Man. The Invicta Punisher quartz watch has a stainless steel case and a bracelet with dial colors inspired by the character: gunmetal, silver and black.
Another anti-hero Marvel character is Venom. The Invicta Venom quartz watch is a large watch (53.7 mm) with a simpler color scheme (black, gray, white) than other Invicta models, which usually have more colorful designs. This is also a limited edition model with a stainless steel case and strap with a unidirectional bezel.
