Audemars Piguet: On the original thread I opined that there were many ways AP could brand with Marvel.

Placing a comic book action figure on the dial was the least appealing of options IMO. I suspected it would have dial colours paired with characters' costumes and perhaps a character engraved on a solid case back. While I'm not an AP aficionado, as a casual observer, this is even worse than I could
