Forbes is reporting that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose’s designer watch has been unveiled.
According to HYT CEO Grégory Dourde, who personally unveiled the product at Dubai’s DIFC, “Axl knew what he wanted.”
“We went backstage the last time AC/DC played in Bern, Switzerland,” Perriard said of the singer via press release, who has also been touring with the Australian band as a replacement for Brian Johnson. “He already knew the brand and its innovative, rock ‘n’ roll spirit. He wasted no time in conceiving his own model, whose spirit was very well defined when we discussed it with him. We have created it for him. This is his watch, exactly as he designed it. We are particularly proud of it.” Rose has already been wearing the watch on stage.
The article also states, “The 51 mm black DLC-coated titanium case with a micro-blasted finish is the same as the base watch, but Rose’s design sees the emblematic skull made of 256 layers of Damascus steel coated with a blue PVD treatment to get the unusually vivid hue.”
The watch will be available as of December 2016 for $100,000. It’s literally one (tenths) in a million.
Rose trashed Jeff Sessions, President elect Donald Trump’s pick for Attorney General, in a tweet yesterday, “Good people don’t listen to, acknowledge, nominate or elect people like Senator Jeff Sessions.”
Good people don't listen to, acknowledge, nominate or elect people like Senator Jeff Sessions.
