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.
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 ten dotted index markers that mimic the frets on
his guitar neck and circular border representing the six guitar strings.
Hendrix was known for his signature left-handed guitar technique,
visible in the Fender guitar counter weight design of the second hand.
He wore an unforgettable cyan blue ensemble with an Aztec guitar
strap on the Woodstock stage; the color is prominently accented on
the second and sub-dial hands while the embossed design on the
watch face calls attention to the Aztec pattern.
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.
