Dedicated to crafting beautiful timepieces, the Swiss watch maker Oris is proud to present the Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition watch.
Remembering the musical talent of Baker, the watch delivers an aura of sophistication and typical Oris refinement, with a musical twist. A talented musician, Baker became renowned for his varied renditions of “My Funny Valentine”- a song which he became intimately associated with for the rest of his career. Much like the pure vocals of Baker, the Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition watch features a perfectly formed stainless steel case, with double curved sapphire crystal and a non reflective coating on the inside. The beautifully engraved case back on the Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition watch features a silhouette of Baker with his trumpet, and the watches limited number, 1929 – the year of Baker’s birth.
The musical theme of the Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition watch is continued on the face of the watch. The crisp black dial provides a smooth backdrop for the hour indexes which are bars from the song “My Funny Valentine”. The 12 o’clock position features a beautiful little clef, while the double bar line at 8 o’clock represents the first eight bars of the song which have to be repeated.
The black leather strap with croco imprint, and a stainless steel folding clasp ensure unrivalled comfort for the wearer- allowing them to carry the legacy of Baker in a special and intimate way. The Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition watch is presented in a unique box with a mechanically driven metronome, the perfect finish to a truly elegant timepiece.
