With the new Maestro Music Special Limited Edition watch, RAYMOND WEIL pays tribute to Buddy Holly, the pioneer of Rock ‘n’ Roll. His style influenced and inspired so many artists, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Elton John.
The music special edition timepieces by RAYMOND WEIL celebrate influential and iconic musicians. Celebrating the 80th anniversary of ‘the founder of Rock ‘N’ Roll’, this new Maestro was designed in collaboration with Maria Elena Holly.
Buddy Holly (Charles Hardin Holley) was born in Lubbock, Texas on 7th September 1936 and this Limited Edition maestro watch pays tribute to the 80th anniversary of his birth. A contribution from each watch sold will be donated to the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, a charity set up to provide music education and opportunities to young people worldwide.
RAYMOND WEIL has designed a truly unique Buddy Holly watch with distinctive features and references to the artist. The 39.5 mm maestro has a polished stainless steel maestro case houses an automatic mechanical movement RW4250 with a 38 hour power and polished stainless steel bracelet.
The silver galvanic dial has highlights of pale blue (Buddy’s favourite colour) encircling the rim, and on the secondary second sub dial, which also wears a miniature pair of glasses (the iconic emblem of the musician) on the sweep of the second hand.
The oversized number 9, featured as a reference to Buddy’s lucky number, is balanced by the date dial at the 3 o’clock position with the emblem of Buddy Holly’s signature centered on the face of the dial. The smoked sapphire crystal exhibition case back references the tribute to the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation.
