To celebrate its 40th birthday, Raymond Weil unveiled a new limited edition timepiece in its Maestro collection. Better yet, it has chosen to mark the occasion with one of the most iconic rock bands of all time by announcing the Raymond Weil Maestro Beatles Limited Edition.
“We could not feel more proud to associate our Brand name with the exceptional Beatles. Raymond Weil has always been closely linked with music, our dear source of inspiration since our early days. We are overjoyed to once again honour great music legends this year and celebrate our 40th anniversary with the Fab Four!”, says Elie Bernheim, CEO Raymond Weil.
The Beatles’ 13 album titles, starting with 1963’s Please Please Me, ring the silver galvanic dial. Help, the group’s iconic 1965 album gets a special marker at the 4 o’clock position. The only complication is the date which appears at the traditional 3 o’clock mark (between A Hard Day’s Night and Beatles for Sale). The black indices and hands complement the silver dial nicely.
On the back, the official Beatles logo featured on the smoked sapphire crystal. The limited edition number is engraved on the bezel.
