Tracing the footsteps of Martin guitars, who at NAMM revealed their 2 millionth guitar and illustrious D-200 Deluxe (complete with an on-board watch),Gibson have now expanded their inventory into previously unexplored territories.
Collaborating with watch manufacturer Raymond Weil, Gibson's 'Freelancer Chronograph Les Paul' sees influence from Gibson's own guitars, with each of the watches featuring a guitar case inspired presentation box. Raymond Weil's passion and enthusiasm for music has been well-documented, with several of his watches reflecting influences from various guitars. With a penchant for creating a luxury special edition watches, Raymond Weil enjoy a long history of infusing music with the utmost extravagance.
300 of the Freelancer watches are to be produced and will each feature a split-diamond inlay fitted next to the date window. The aptly named Black Beauty models' tachymater bezel is enhanced with black PBV inspired lacquer, whilst a circular guilloché motif features six chords which are decorated by fret-shaped hour markers. Encased in a steel body with a 43.5 mm in diameter, the Freelancer features a subtly imbued Gibson Les Paul Logo placed at its top. The tempo of the timepiece is set by a RW5010 mechanical self-winding movement; a happy revelation for fans everywhere.
