Raymond Weil has launched its fourth maestro series Beatles timepiece, the last in its partnership with the legendary British band brand.

Limited to 3,000 pieces, the Let It Be edition features a mechanical self-winding skeleton movement,  revealed by a subtle cut-out shaped like the United Kingdom. It’s housed in a round polished stainless steel case, 400mm wide by 9.2mm thin, offering a 38-hour power reserve. 

The official Beatles logo at 9 o’clock balances the Raymond Weil logo at 3 o’clock; the case back, with smoked sapphire crystal, features a more prominent Beatles logo. 

The crown is polished steel, fluted with the RW monogram. Water resistance is certified to 50 m.

In  keeping with the previous Sergeant Pepper’s maestro The Beatles, the light brown nubuck-effect strap boasts FSC-certified vegan material. 

When it comes to design, the watch plays on the contrast between the anthracite dial and the rose gold plated hands and baton indices, in particular revealed at 4 o’clock. The four-baton index represents John, Paul, George and Ringo, with the watch hands centred on the city of Liverpool, where the Beatles story began.

Let It Be was the twelfth and final studio album from The Beatles. It was released May 8 1970.

‘The Let It Be maestro The Beatles model carries a timeless message of optimism and recalls the spirit of an entire era reviving images of an impromptu concert on the rooftop at Apple  Studios. This was to be their last ever live performance,’ proclaims the watchmaker.  

The Beatles Let It Be limited edition watch (2215-STC-BEAT4) comes with a certificate of authenticity from Raymond Weil and Apple Corps, and is priced at £1,750. More here:
