Oris Chet Baker Tribute Watch Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
Oris has created a watch dedicated to legendary jazz musician Chet Baker.
The timepiece is limited to 1929 - a reference to the year Baker was born and the case back is engraved with a silhouette of the musician with his trumpet.
The Chet Baker Limited Edition has a 40mm stainless steel case and features a number of musical references: the hour indexes on the dial represent bars from the famous song My Funny Valentine; a treble clef appears in the 12 oclock position and a double bar line appears at 8 oclock to represent the first eight bars of the song that are repeated.
The tribute watch was launched at Londons famous nightclub Ronnie Scotts where guests were entertained by a jazz band. Bakers widow and son attended the event.
