HYT announces a new partnership with a name that you wouldn’t match with a watch brand at first: Axl Rose. The one and only – already legendary – frontman of rock band Guns ‘N’ Roses. As a result, this new ‘friend of the brand’ is reason enough for HYT to create a limited edition watch. A limited edition? Yes a reinterpretation of the existing HYT Skull watch.
A rock & roll piece as it is, but we are very anxious to see that new variation. The Axl Rose Skull will be unveiled at the SIHH 2017. We have to wait a couple of months, but let’s hope it will all be worth the wait. About the partnership, I can only say: two extraordinary individuals – as far as HYT can be called an individual – have bundled their forces and unique vision to create something special.
Let’s sit back, relax and wait for the HYT x Axl Rose creation to see the light of day. A nice collaboration between a brand with a unique horological vision and an artist that once described himself as someone who ‘pretty much stays to himself and that’s about it’.
