Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition

Swiss watch brand ORIS presents a limited edition watch collection to honour the musical talent of Chet Baker, who immortalised the song “My Funny Valentine”.

Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition, Reference 733 7591 4084 LS

A talented musician, Baker became renowned for his varied renditions of “My Funny Valentine”– a song which he became intimately associated with for the rest of his career.

Much like the pure vocals of Baker, the watch features a perfectly formed stainless steel case, with double curved sapphire crystal and a non reflective coating on the inside. The beautifully engraved case back features a silhouette of Baker with his trumpet, and the watches limited number, 1929 – the year of Baker’s birth.

The musical theme of the timepiece is continued on the face of the watch. The crisp black dial provides a smooth backdrop for the hour indexes which are bars from the song “My Funny Valentine”.

The 12 o’clock position features a beautiful little clef, while the double bar line at 8 o’clock represents the first eight bars of the song which have to be repeated.

The black leather strap with croco imprint, and a stainless steel folding clasp ensure unrivalled comfort for the wearer- allowing them to carry the legacy of Baker in a special and intimate way.
