Freelancer Jimi Hendrix™ Limited Edition
Men’s Mechanical Chronograph Movement Watch, 42mm

 

Stainless steel, with grey PVD coating

7730-STC-JHDX1

RAYMOND WEIL chose its flagship freelancer collection to capture Jimi Hendrix’s free-spirited attitude and classic trademarks.

His famous 1968 white Fender Stratocaster inspired many of the dial’s details, including the nine dotted index markers that mimic the frets on his guitar neck and circular border representing the six guitar strings.

This freelancer is a must-have for any Jimi Hendrix fan.

The strap is made of genuine calf leather.

The timepiece is limited to just 500 units worldwide; each with its own numbered case back and certificate of authenticity signed by Jimi’s sister, Janie Hendrix.

Each Limited Edition is packaged handsomely in a blue and white commemorative box, paying homage to Woodstock.

It is completed with a funky tie-dye interior to proudly display your timepiece.

With this latest addition to our Music Icons series, we at RAYMOND WEIL are thrilled to join forces with Authentic Hendrix to honor the world’s greatest guitarist. Music has always inspired our brand and sets an upbeat rhythm for all our new releases.

Description

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.
