Citizen Independent 1481010 Spawn Special Edition: Angela version

In the late 90s, many special editions of the1481010 watches were released. Today's watch is one of 4 designs released to commemorate the 1997 movie of the comic book Spawn.

Spawn was created by Todd McFarlane, and tells the story of a soldier betrayed by the government and assassinated who makes a pact with the devil to return to earth, but eventually turns to fight for justice.

This watch is one of the 6160 module watches in the 1481010 range (and the only one of this module to have a Spawn edition). I've featured the non-Spawn version in an earlier post. It was released in 1998 and has a limited edition of (I think) 5000. This version is the Angela version, and features the assassin Angela on the packaging (who is the one who sent Spawn to hell). The special edition has the Spawn name on the dial, and the Spawn logo engraved on the strap just above the face. It also has Todd McFarlane signature engraved on the back.

It is a jump-hour watch with the hours in a window at the top (which start changing about 15min before the hour). The minutes are shown by a normal hand, and the seconds by a rotating triangle in the middle.

The full model number is 6160-L18722, and the catalogue number is IT21-4241J RN. It was originally sold for 14,000yen.
