If the tunes of ‘Hey Jude’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’ get you to tap your feet and you just can’t stop yourself from humming ‘Back in the USSR’ while it’s played nearby, there is hardly any doubt about your dedication to Beatles. The short lived band of the 70s, Beatles has redefined music of the youth.
It seems to be redefining fashion now because there’s a fake watch that has Beatles album names inscribed in the dial. All thanks to Raymond Weil, the bespoke Swiss replica watchmaker who has introduced the Maestro Beatles limited edition timepiece. Each item is presented with a dedicated watchcase celebrating the music icons.
An impressive drum with the official Beatles logo decorates the top of the box while the inside features the 13 album titles that are marked on the dial of the limited edition. The watch features a mechanical self-winding movement housed in a 39.5 mm polished steel case.
Talking exclusively to Business Insider, Olivier Bernheim, the owner and president of Raymond Weil, said – “We have been in India for a long time. We have received appreciation across segments and seen a lot of growth opportunities here. The latest limited edition Maestro Beatles celebrates the 40th anniversary of the brand. We have always derived inspiration from music and this bespoke timepiece pays tribute to The Beatles. The limited edition watch is perfect for the die-hard Beatles fan as well as music connoisseurs.”
“To bring this masterpiece to the Indian market, as well as deepen our engagement locally we have exclusively partnered with Ethos Watch Boutiques and Helios. Our partnership with Ethos is primarily due to their reach and trust and their commitment to promising authenticity and safeguarding customers from various malpractices rampant in the watch industry,” he added.
Here’s the best part
The 13 Beatles’ album titles are placed 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. 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 for India.
Remember, if you want ot own one of these, you will have to walk into one of Ethos Watch Boutiques.
