A tribute to live music, this Freelancer inspires us to live life with creativity and joy. The black chronograph dial, with its symmetrical bi-compax layout, features a 30-minute chronograph counter and a small seconds display.

Nixon Rolling Stones Sentry Leather Black And Red A1354-001-00

A collaboration with one of the most popular rock and roll bands in history, The Rolling Stones, with this Nixon, time is on your side. The sleek black dial features applied silver-tone baton indices and skeletonised silver-tone hands. For a playful pop of colour, the signature Rolling Stones red tongue replaces the baton at 12 o’clock, and the Rolling Stones logo features just above the 6 o’clock position. A practical date and day aperture sits alongside the 3 o’clock position. As far as durability goes, this watch thrives. A 42mm solid stainless steel case frames the dial, while a hardened mineral crystal protects the dial. Together with the triple gasket crown, which aids the watch’s 100 metres of water resistance, and the stainless steel screw-down case back, they make for a tough display. Ensuring accurate timekeeping, a Japanese Miyota quartz movement powers the watch. Concluding the design of the collaboration, and adding elements of dimensionality, is a black leather strap with red stitching.

The Rolling Stones want to paint it black, and this watch certainly does that. Not only does it look great on the wrist, but it keeps its wearer jamming comfortably all day long!

As well as this, to help with timekeeping, black Arabic numerals feature on the white inner ring and a date aperture features at the 4:30 position. Providing a subtle pop of colour, the chronograph pushers feature an orange lacquer effect. Measuring 44mm in diameter, a stainless steel case frames the dial; its lugless ‘UFO’ design makes for an extremely lightweight watch. Moreover, aided by its crown, the watch is water-resistant up to 50 metres. A Miyota JS 25 Chronograph quartz movement powers the watch. Famously reliable it ensures for accurate timekeeping. Seamlessly tying together the minimal design of the timepiece, it secures to the wrist with a black silicone strap and ardillon buckle.

Music takes us to another world, and so does this Ikepod with its ‘UFO’ design. Although it may not be everyone’s preferred choice, it perfectly showcases the harmonious blend between music and watches.

Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton Automatic (42.5mm) Black Dial / Black Rubber Strap H24535331

This Hamilton acts as a tribute to the King of Rock and Roll; Elvis Presley. Not only is it named after the musical legend himself, but it is from the same line of watches, the Ventura, that he most famously wore throughout his career. Bold and unique, the black skeletonised dial features striking cutaways that reveal elements of the watch’s movement. The dial also features silver-tone baton indices and hour and minute hands. For a pop of colour, the second hand is red; it complements the striking red zigzag at the centre of the dial perfectly. To ensure the dial remains in pristine condition, scratch-resistant sapphire glass encases it. Moreover, a sleek, black PVD-coated, triangular stainless steel case frames the dial. Measuring 42.5mm in diameter, it houses the watch’s H-10-S automatic movement with an 80-hour power reserve. A black silicone strap concludes the design of this ultra-modern timepiece.

Not only does this watch represent the history of the Ventura collection, but it does so through the form of an icon from the music industry. Although Elvis Presley is no longer with us, his legacy lives on through this Hamilton.

Ball Watch Company Men’s Engineer Hydrocarbon Original (43mm) DM2218B-S1CJ-BE

From Audemars Piguet to Rolex, Eric Singer, from the rock band Kiss, is known for his impressive watch collection. Although there is an extensive range of watches in his collection, there is only one watch he wears whilst on stage; Ball Watch Company’s Engineer Hydrocarbon Original. Durable and utilitarian, the blue dial features large, implemented hands and indices. They both feature a luminescent coating for ease of reading. Further contributing to this ease of reading, a date and day aperture features at 3 o’clock. Measuring 43mm in diameter, the stainless steel case houses the watch’s BALL RR1101-CSL automatic movement. Moreover, the watch is COSC certified and it boasts an impressive 200 metres of water resistance. While all of these features emphasise the watch’s design, they aren’t the ones that captured Singer’s interest. Instead, it was the brand’s SpringLOCK anti-shock system which ensures greater accuracy and minimises shock damage to the balance spring.

Although Singer wears the black version on stage, this blue model sports the same design and features. Why not purchase it and match with the man himself? After all, it hits the brief of watches for music enthusiasts perfectly.
