David King,President of King Jewelers Nashville, Featured Alongside Gibson Guitars and Raymond Weil in Winter 2017 Edition of Revolution USA Magazine
Raymond Weil has long been a supporter of the music industry, with special edition watches dedicated to Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, David Bowie, and Bob Marley, among others. It’s no surprise that the brand eventually pursued a partnership with Gibson Guitars, juggernaut of the music industry and leading manufacturer of guitars. With Gibson’s ties to Nashville and the city’s reigning status of Music City USA, it makes sense that King Jewelers, the authorized Raymond Weil dealer in Nashville, would feature heavily in the promotion of the product.
The Raymond Weil and Gibson Guitars partnership has since yielded two Gibson watches; the Nabucco Nashville edition, based off the Gibson SG Standard, was debuted to much fanfare at an exclusive party hosted by King Jewelers in 2015, and now a Freelancer inspired by the Gibson Les Paul has been released to even greater acclaim. To further investigate what makes this partnership tick, Editor-in-Chief of Revolution USA Keith Strandberg visited Nashville to see what all the fuss was about.
During his stay in Music City, Strandberg visited King Jewelers to talk with David King about Nashville’s booming growth and why King feels the Gibson/Raymond Weil partnership was a match made in music heaven. David’s passion project, Rock Royalty, also makes an appearance throughout the article. Rock Royalty creates one-of-a-kind custom guitars for the musician (or music fan) in your life.
Pick up a copy of the Winter 2017 edition of Revolution USA magazine to learn more about Strandberg’s trip to Tennessee and read why he feels the watch industry and the guitar industry are more alike than they are different.
