The obvious answer is to combine all influences into a spectacular watch that explores the punk rebellion and its contribution to music.
The Limited Edition watch presents a distressed Union Jack dial to cement the punk influence in a patriotic way. The striking dial measures at 42mm and is manufactured to a limitation of 70 pieces. The red, white and blue striped nato strap is a first for Raymond Weil as never before has a NATO-style fastening been attached to the brands dial design!!
The Chief Executive Officer of Raymond Weil, Elie Bernheim explains: “Raymond Weil is delighted to celebrate the long-standing and successful partnership with The Brit Awards with the launch of this striking punk-inspired toccata timepiece. There is a singer and relationship that music and watchmaking have in common and music continues to be a significant part of the Raymond Weil DMA.”
