On the launch of the exclusive timepiece as well as showing a deeper commitment to the Indian market, Mr. Olivier Bernheim, Owner & President, Raymond Weil said “We have been in India for a long time and have received appreciation across segments and seen a lot of growth opportunities. The latest limited edition Maestro Beatles celebrates the 40th anniversary of the brand. We have always derived inspiration from music and this bespoke timepiece pays tribute to The Beatles. The limited edition watch is perfect for the die-hard Beatles fan as well as music connoisseurs. To bring this masterpiece to the Indian market, as well as deepen our engagement locally we have exclusively partnered with Ethos Watch Boutiques and Helios. Our partnership with Ethos is primarily due to their reach and trust and their commitment to promising authenticity and safeguarding customers from various malpractices rampant in the watch industry.”

In India, the limited edition pieces are available exclusively at Ethos Watch Boutiques and another retailer. This has further strengthened the relationship between the two brands. On the tie-up with Ethos, Mr. Yashovardhan Saboo, CEO, Ethos Watch Boutiques said “The limited edition timepiece is beautifully created as a befitting tribute to The Beatles. Raymond Weil is one of the preferred brands by our customers and such innovative bespoke time pieces would garner a great response among watch and music connoisseurs alike.”

Each Maestro Beatles timepiece is presented with a dedicated watchcase celebrating the music icons. An impressive drum with the official Beatles logo decorates the top of the box while the inside features the 13 album titles that are marked on the dial of the limited edition. The watch features a mechanical self-winding movement housed in a 39.5 mm polished steel case. The 13 Beatles’ album titles are placed around the bespoke dial, with a special “Help” index at 4 o’clock which recalls the cover of the iconic album released in 1965. The silver galvanic dial matches the polished steel bracelet. It features the official Beatles logo and a date window at 3 o’clock. Finally, the case back presents a smoked sapphire crystal that carries the official Beatles logo and the limited edition number engraved. This unique timepiece paying tribute to the legendary Fab Four is limited to 3,000 pieces.
