Raymond Weil Bob Marley doing the Tango
After a successful limited edition was launched last year specifically for the Caribbean markets, Raymond Weil now presents a global limited-edition Tango GMT model designed in collaboration with House of Marley.
This latest tribute to the music icon is limited to just 1,500 pieces worldwide. It has a 42mm polished steel case with a black and grey anodized aluminium bezel. It features a black dial decorated with the iconic lion head that every Bob Marley fan will recognise. It is the Lion of Judah central to Rastafarian beliefs that appears on the old royal Ethiopian flag and represents Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie.
The colour palette is also inspired by the Ethiopian flag, with a red second hand, green GMT hand and yellow circumference circle. The numbered case back is engraved with Bob Marley’s signature and the famous “Time Will Tell” taken from Kaya (1978) – his tenth studio album with the Wailers. The Tango GMT Bob Marley shares the same robustness of the Raymond Weil Tango collection and is water resistant to 300 meters.

“We are honoured to work with Raymond Weil on the creation of this timepiece that celebrates our father’s legacy and recognizes the artistic contribution of so many great musicians in this unique way,” says Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob Marley.
World renowned artist Bob Marley remains one of the 20th century’s most important and influential entertainment icons. Famous for having put reggae on the global map, his lifestyle and music continue to inspire new generations illustrated by the millions of albums sold worldwide.
