inspired by the effortless elegance of the KING OF COOL
Todd & Marlon proudly introduces the exclusive timepiece inspired by the iconic entertainer Dean Martin.
"It has been an honor and a privilege for us to be able to design a timepiece inspired by the ultimate gentleman, Dean Martin,” says Vincenzo Carrara, CEO, Todd & Marlon LLC. “The Dean Martin Exclusive Edition is a modern reinterpretation of the artist’s unique and transcendent style and it has been designed to be the perfect companion for the contemporary man.”
The timepiece features a Swiss-made, 26-jewel, mechanical movement with automatic winding housed in a 38mm stainless steel case.
Evoking some of Mr. Martin’s style cues and passions, the treatment on the watch case is inspired by the brushed, shiny metal of a classic microphone. The strap, made of black leather, is reminiscent of the interior of his custom 1962 Ghia L6.4, and the touch of red on the hands pays homage to his signature pocket square. Finally, a transparent case back boasts a special insignia featuring Dean Martin and reveals a rotor engraved with the title that best describes him, “KING OF COOL.”
