Baselworld 2016 saw the release of some of the most beautiful and technical watches and quite possible one of the biggest music collaborations in history. Raymond Weil finally released the limited edition Maestro timepiece that is in honour of the music icons, The Beatles.
In certain cases, it doesn’t get much bigger and when Raymond Weil announced their collaboration with the iconic Fab Four, Raymond Weil celebrated 40 years in style. For the 40th anniversary, Raymond Weil announced that only 3000 pieces of the Maestro will be released worldwide and has many distinctive features. The Maestro features a mechanical, self-winding movement and stainless steel casing. The dial is dedicated to the Help pose position at four o’ clock and highlights the creativity involved in the design. When you take a look at the watch you can see the true craftsmanship involved into the design, the style and more important into the watch itself. Not only does it offer a Beatles themed dial and face, it also comes in a bespoke The Beatles and Raymond Weil collaborated box, highlighting the emphasis of such a match.
Apple Records, the official record label of The Beatles agreed to collaborate with Raymond Weil, using The Beatles logo to represent the number three. Elie Bernheim, the CEO of Raymond Weil said “we could not feel more proud to associate our brand new with exceptional Beatles…” and “Raymond Weil has always been closely linked with music, our dear source of inspiration since our early days. We overjoyed to once again honour great music legends this year and celebrate our 40th anniversary with the Fab Four!”.
This is not the first time Raymond Weil have paired with music icons, as they have dedicated timepieces to Labrinth, Gibson, Frank Sinatra, Nicola Benedetti, 2Cellos, Miloš Karadaglić and have sponsored various music based events.
