The Chet Baker tribute watch is sure to strike a chord with the discerning customers of Khimji’s Watches. The pieces are presented in a 40mm stainless steel case with a curved sapphire crystal, the back of which features a silhouette of Baker with his trumpet. The musical theme of the timepiece 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.
Speaking as Khimji’s Watches, prepared for the launch Mr. Madhursinh Jesrani, General Manager of Khimji's Watches, said “Our customers like to stand out from the crowd and at Khimji’s Watches we are always looking for something quirky to suit their tastes. The Oris Chet Baker Watch certainly ticks all of our boxes. Chet Baker helped to popularize a new style of jazz and this beautiful Oris timepiece serves to reinvigorate his musical legacy. Wearers of the watches will be carrying on the legacy of Baker in a special and intimate way.”
