The Los Angeles Kings® achieved a remarkable turnaround by becoming the 2014 Stanley Cup™ Champions for the second time in three years.
To celebrate this achievement, Swiss watch maker GRAHAM has launched an ultimate limited edition reserved for the players.
The Silverstone RS Endurance LA Kings® embodies the same energy and enthusiasm that the players experienced in conquering the NHL® Championship. The collectible watch contains a slice of the game puck used in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup™ Final which took place on June 13, 2014.
On November 28th, GRAHAM organised an exceptional awards presentation with the LA Kings® players in Los Angeles. Each player was offered their own unique Silverstone RS LA Kings® which features a certified slice of the game puck used in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup™ Final on June 13, 2014.
GRAHAM developed two limited edition series: one for players and a second available to the public.
Both Silverstone RS Endurance LA Kings® are collectible watches marked by adrenaline and radiance as they feature a black PVD case enhanced with a black ceramic bezel and a solid white gold (18K) ring with “Clous de Paris” under the bezel.
On player’s edition, the wonderful 2014 Stanley Cup™ victory is set in stone on the side of the case at 3 o’clock. The “2014” inscription is engraved alongside two white diamonds (0.014 cts). The Silverstone RS Endurance LA Kings® – player’s edition features two diamonds on the side of the case to symbolize Stanley Cup™ victories.
The breathtaking experience that the LA Kings® made us live is unforgettable. Attentive to details, GRAHAM wanted to pay a particular tribute to the victory by placing a genuine piece of puck in the watch dial. The seconds counter at 9 o’clock has been replaced by a certified slice of a game puck used in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup™ Final which took place on June 13, 2014.
The task was not easy as the puck bears the marks and scratches of the final game. The two sides of the puck were cut with a laser machine. Each face has been cautiously milled with a grinding-wheel then stoned to reach only 0.45mm thick.
A thin slice of the puck was cut with a precision laser from a specific part of the disc. A certified slice of the hockey puck used in the winning Game 5 is integrated to the dial. Positioned on the left of the dial at 9 o’clock, the slice is captioned with the inscription “2014 final winning game 5 used puck”.
This high-powered time instrument will seal the victory and make it last. 24 pieces given to players; 1 piece preserved in the GRAHAM private collection; only 25 additional pieces have been made available to the public. Exclusively available at GRAHAM official retail stores in the USA, the Silverstone RS Endurance LA Kings® will make you feel the thrill of competition and victory.
