Oris pays tribute to the world’s greatest jazz musicians with Art Blakey Limited Edition timepiece

Oris returns to its long-running series of jazz watches with a piece inspired by the American jazz drummer and bandleader Art Blakey. Art was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1919, and made his name in the 1940s and 1950s playing alongside fellow icons of jazz Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, all of whom Oris has previously celebrated with limited edition watches.

In the 1950s, Art formed the Jazz Messengers and would go on to play with them for more than three decades. He died in 1990 and won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. The watch, which is a time-only automatic, features a dial decorated with the eight claws from Art’s bass drum, and a case back with a cymbal inlay. The watch is limited to 1,000 pieces.
