In honor of three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Nile Rodgers’ 70th birthday, Bulova has unveiled two new limited-edition timepieces with all proceeds benefiting the We Are Family Foundation (WAFF).
The first model was dubbed the Time-Only PieceWe are a family‘ and offered in stainless steel with black IP coating. Inspired by Rodgers’ musical DNA, the inner dial is distinguished by a black record-like circle adorned with the artist’s signature. The outer ring of the dial is made from a wood grain similar to that of a guitar neck.
Rose-colored hands tick above the music-inspired dial design, adding color to an otherwise neutral-toned watch. On the reverse, a flat mineral caseback is engraved “Happy 70th Nile!” Also the We Are Family Foundation logo. The watch is presented on a black nylon strap.
For the second honor timepiece, Bulova turned to its most popular Archive Series model, the Lunar Pilot Chronograph. Limited Edition ‘We Are Family’ Lunar Pilot Chronograph. The watch is a nod to the space race era of the 1960s and 1970s, during which Rodgers grew up and still has a strong fascination. The newest iteration is a commemorative reissue of the original chronograph worn on August 2, 1971, during the Apollo 15 mission.
