Not often but once in a while, I do run my fingers over the keys of my daughter’s Yamaha keyboard (musical). It reminds me of the grand piano that used to stand majestically in my school’s music room. That’s exactly what I was reminded of when I came across this exclusive line of watches from Steinway & Sons. Actually pianist, designer and watchmaker, Fabrizio Cavalca has launched a line of Steinway & Sons Watches. In case the name Steinway didn’t ring any bell to you then let me tell you that Steinway & Sons is one of the most famous pianos manufacturers worldwide. The world’s most recognized name in pianos now appears on a distinctive wristwatch collection. Fabrizio Cavalca’s designs are influenced by more than pleasingly gilded proportions ‘Golden Ratio’ plus they are also strongly shaped by music. Visual design meshes with auditory sounds to create such items as this watch with Swiss automatic movement.
You can find the famed logo on the top of the right-hand corner of the watch dial. The second’s hand looks like a tuning fork. The watch dial features a grand piano soundboard shape for the 18k white gold, yellow gold, or 18kt red gold with 12 hands attached strings on the dial. And in the diamond version, instead of strings, the soundboard is decorated with 140 individually set diamonds. This limited edition watches are surely gonna burn a deep hole through your wallets though.
