RAYMOND WEIL pays tribute to legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix with its newest Limited Edition freelancer chronograph, inspired by the musician’s timeless Woodstock performance.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the famous festival, one of the most pivotal live music events in history, which saw Hendrix perform his renowned rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.
Crafted in Geneva by RAYMOND WEIL’s in-house watchmakers, the timepiece maintains the freelancer collection’s case design in a matte finish, original chronograph push buttons and classic brown leather strap. The tachymeter ring is detailed with the singer’s famous quote, “Music is my Religion” alongside his name, and the case back is finished with the Authentic Hendrix logo, giving his estate’s seal of approval.
