Guns N’ Roses’ singer Axl Rose will release a wristwatch he helped design with HYT next month.

The Skull Axl Rose watch is black and blue in colour and limited to just 25 pieces. The 51mm black DLC-coated titanium case has a micro-blasted finish and features a skull emblem made of 256 layers of Damascus steel coated with a blue PVD treatment. It accurately keeps time using liquid technology, with seconds shown in the skull’s eyes.

The dial bears a rhodium-plated Clous de Paris pattern and comes on a bracelet-style black leather strap with blue stitching. Rose’s signature and the Guns N’ Roses logo is also on the sapphire crystal case back.

HYT CEO Gregory Dourde tells Forbes: “Axl 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.”
