Swiss watch brand Raymond Weil has created a limited edition freelancer watch in memory of the late British rock icon, David Bowie.
In collaboration with the David Bowie estate and to commemorate what would have been his 70th birthday, the freelancer David Bowie is a tribute to the life and musical career of the pop artist.
The 42mm diameter case contains a dial resembling a vinyl record and features emblems associated with Bowie, such as the lightning bolt made famous by his 1973 Aladdin Sane album. In addition, the pop art logo from the 1974 album cover Diamond Dogs also appears on the watch dial.
The collectable timepiece has been produced in 3000-piece limited numbered series and includes a mechanical self-winding movement that appears below a portrait of David Bowie.
Elie Bernheim chief executive officer Raymond Weil said: “He was an artist in a league of his own, a visionary, multi-faceted icon whose work is testimony to an exceptional career as a musician and a creative.
“His metamorphoses both in terms of style and music studded his career, catapulting both himself and his characters to legendary status. He embodies the free spirit that has guided Raymond Weil day after day since it was created,” explained Bernheim.
