RAYMOND WEIL X BASQUIAT™ Special Edition is a testament to audacity and creativity. With limited availability worldwide, the timepiece pays homage to the iconic contemporary artist, a visionary whose profound influence continues to resonate throughout the worlds of art and culture. The result is a remarkable fusion of raw neo-expressionism and traditional watchmaking precision, that brings Basquiat’s genius to the wrists of watch enthusiasts and art aficionados alike. The new freelancer Basquiat Special Edition timepiece is a true collectors’ item showcasing Basquiat’s artwork on the exterior and the artistry of Swiss watchmaking within. At the heart of the dial sits the iconic ‘Pez Dispenser’, the crown-wearing dinosaur depicted in Basquiat’s famous painting of 1984. Positioned at 12 o’clock, the crown boasts a yellow Super-Luminova® embellishment, while the hour hands and indexes are dressed in white Super-LumiNova®, emitting a glow under dim light conditions. The sleek black PVD pushers are emblazoned with Basquiat’s iconic symbols; the Copyright symbol on the Cancel/Reset pusher; the Dollar sign on the Start/Stop pusher and the artist’s signature crown motif on the screwed-down crown. The watch highlights a ceramic tachymeter bezel, designed for precise measurement, alongside a flange pulsometer scale calibrated for 30 pulsations. By introducing this special edition watch, RAYMOND WEIL celebrates his spirit and ensures that creativity remains at the heart of the company’s culture.
