Oris – Thelonious Monk Limited Edition
Following the John Coltrane Limited Edition introduced a year ago, in 2015 Oris praises another legendary jazz performer and composer with the Thelonious Monk Limited Edition.
The progressive musician (1917 – 1982) is recalled specifically for his utilization of discord in his music and for the irregular way to deal with the piano, which combined a profoundly percussive assault with unexpected, sensational utilization of hushes and falterings.
In 1944, Thelonious Monk composed Round Midnight, which has since become the most recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz artist.
The new accolade watch includes a 40 mm cleaned steel case with a sunray completed smoke blue dial with cleaned spots to check the hours. In the event that you look carefully, you will see brief markers between the 10 and 12-hour markers, here and there a gesture to Monk’s conflicting method.
The case back is engraved with the words ‘Priest ALWAYS KNOW’, alluding to one of Monk’s verbal jokes motivated by the letters on his uniquely designed ring which seemed to say ‘KNOW’ yet could likewise be perused ‘Priest’ if spelt backward with the ‘W’ altered.
The development of decision is simply the Oris 733 winding development, in light of Sellita SW 200, beating at 28,800 vph with a force save of 38 hours. A dark calfskin lash with tempered steel collapsing fasten completes the watch.
A restricted version of 1000 pieces, the Oris Thelonious Monk (ref, 733 7712 4085) will be at a bargain the following spring with a retail cost of Euro 1.700/Swiss Francs 1,800. oris.ch
