Luxury Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil has announced a historic partnership with the Beatles, by which they will produce unique Maestro Beatles Limited Edition timepieces as a salute to music’s most celebrated group. The Maestro Beatles Limited Edition is the latest in the brand’s famed music icons series. It also marks Raymond Weil’s 40th Anniversary.
“We are proud to associate our brand name with the exceptional Beatles. Raymond Weil has always been closely linked with music, our source of inspiration since the early days. We are overjoyed to once again honour great music legends this year and celebrate our 40th anniversary with the Fab Four,” said Elie Bernheim, CEO, Raymond Weil.
The maestro Beatles Limited Edition features a mechanical self-winding movement housed in a 39.5mm polished steel case. The timepiece has the 13 Beatles’ album titles engraved all around the bespoke dial, with a special “Help” index at 4 o’clock which recalls the cover of the iconic album released in 1965.
The silver galvanic dial matches the polished steel bracelet. It features the official Beatles logo and a date window at 3 o’clock. Finally, the case back presents a smoked sapphire crystal that carries the official Beatles logo and the limited edition number engraved. This unique timepiece paying tribute to the legendary Fab Four is limited to 3,000 pieces.
Each Maestro Beatles timepiece is being presented with a dedicated watch case celebrating the music icons. An impressive drum with the official Beatles official logo decorates the top of the box.
