Just received an email from Urwerk that says Robert Downey Jr., is wearing an Urwerk UR-110 in rose gold (which retails for $115K), as Tony Stark/Iron Man in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie which debuts in theaters today.

(Robert Downery Jr. is pictured above at the movie premiere with English actor, Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man.)

According to an email sent from Urwerk earlier today, “Sony Pictures contacted us in late 2016. They told us a major character of their Spiderman Homecoming production wanted to see and maybe wear one of our watches. Could this be the latest scam?…

We do not have any Ambassador and were/are not keen to pay for one so we declined politely. But they contacted us again, insisting it was a personal request and drop the name… So I flew all the way to Atlanta to meet this new fan: Mr. Robert Downey JR himself.

He thought his character: Tony Stark / Iron Man would be even cooler with an URWERK on his wrist. Would anybody have said no? We did not!!”
