Aside from rudimentary embellishments such as his emblazoned signature and logo, this all black number also features a chockfull of thoughtful personalized details such as the red and white second hand that recalls the colors of his home country, Japan, and the openings in the dial fashioned after the breathing slits in his helmet.
Matched in power by its automatic Oris 635 movement, the timepiece also bears a layered, two-piece black dial with printed indexes and a date and day display at ’3′ for an athletic overlay.

There is little to add on to Bob Dylan‘s statuesque pop-star status, but Swiss manufacturer ORIS has taken on the gargantuan task of paying tribute to the master songwriter with its Bob Dylan Limited Edition watch.
And we have to say, it doesn’t disappoint.
Powered by an automatic ORIS 733 movement and channeling Dylan‘s perennial classicism, this timepiece features a stylish stainless steel rectangular case and a plain black leather strap that transcends time and trends, much like the man himself. A swirly patterned dial harks back to the vibrant pop art scene that dominated the 1960s along with Dylan‘s then-rising musical star.
And for those who are seeking a more tangible portrayal of Dylan, the watch bears an image of him on the case back as well as his signature on the dial. Shielding the watch on both sides is a sapphire glass that wraps around it coupled with an inner and outer anti-reflective coating.
Limited to 3,000 pieces and presented in an exclusive box set with Dylan’s wind instrument of choice, a Hohner Marine Band harmonica, this timeless watch is the perfect tag-along for any fan worth his salt.
