Shop A Swiss Made And Music Inspired Watches

Bailey Banks and Biddle is the place to go for Raymond Weil Watches. The watches are Swiss made and music inspired. For over 35 years the watchmaker has been involved in the music industry. This is evident in their Beatles-inspired limited edition watch. The watch has 13 Beatles album titles written around the dial. There are only 3,000 of these watches being made. This is where the word limited edition comes from. Everyone loves the Beatles. Everyone remembers Paul McCartney singing in the superbowl in 2012. And everyone in the world knew who he was. And even the people too young to remember the band still listen to their songs on the radio. What does music have do with watches? That’s a good question. And maybe someone at Raymond Weil knows. But you have to admit that it’s a pretty cool themed idea.


You will be happy to know that the ideas don’t stop there. There is a watch face with six grooves in it to symbolize the strings on a guitar. This watch has a self-winding mechanism with a 46 hour power reserve. That means if you get lost in the jungle you will be okay. And you won’t have to worry about your watch battery dying. More importantly, you’ll never be late again. Four of the keys on the watch are placed to mimic the self-tuning knobs on a guitar. And you are tuning your watch up when you wind it.


The last time of interesting watch resembles a cello. The watch has a very mechanical look. There is a metal piece that goes across the face to look like strings. It even has a hollow appearance that you see in stringed instruments. The watch bezel has five grooves to represent a musical stave. The watch’s movement bridges supporting the tourbillion escapement and mainspring barrel take the form of a cello’s f-holes. The frame is carbon fiber. And the back is PVD coated. Each one of the cello inspired watches comes in box that also reflects elements of the instrument. Watch making is not unlike musical instruments. Both require precision. They both must keep a tempo. Both have to be maintained and cared for so that they last longer. And at least for luxury watches, they are an example of art and craftsmanship. The founder’s grandson was a cellist from an early age.
