Music inspired timepieces: Beastie Boys

These two timepieces at first ask the question, then provide the answer. They are inspired by the Beastie Boys track Time to get ill – the first track on the 1986 album Licenced to Ill produced by Rick Rubin which went on to became the best selling rap album of the 1980s and the first rap album to go No.1 on the billboard album chart. It’s still fresh and relevant today as it ever was. What’s the time???

Music inspired timepieces: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Music legends in their own time. This timepiece echoes the seminal Deja Vu album cover whilst paying tribute to their song Long Time Gone. Check out Tom Jones on YouTube (below) taking the lead vocal on the track. Powerful stuff.

Music Inspired Timepieces: Spinal Tap

This is Spinal Tap is mockumentary I never get tired of watching. It’s the type of genius film you can catch something new and funny every time you watch it. This timepiece pay tribute to the film’s Squatney born lead guitarist Nigel Tuffnel – a true guitar hero. This watch goes all the way to eleven and has a Stonehenge seconds hand.

Music Inspired Timepieces: The Beatles

This collection combines a love of music and a love of watches. This, the first timepiece, is inspired by the track Revolution Number 9 on the White album. The hour and minute hands would be made of transparent plastic so it looks like the seconds hand is endlessly spinning in infinity… just like the track.
