Aries Gold Aerosmith Limited Edition Watch

Aries Gold Aerosmith Limited Edition Watch Watch Releases

An idea that sparks a watch collaboration can come from anywhere. Some brands look to the world of motorsports while others get their ideas from aviation-inspired designs. Those are two pretty popular sources of inspiration, but not for Singapore-based Aries Gold. Aries Gold was started by CK Woo in 1970 and is the only watch manufacturer in Singapore with all watches designed and assembled in their home country. After a successful collaboration timepiece with the Foo Fighters – that sold out in just two months – the watchmaker is hitting the stage with another group of Rock legends, Aerosmith. The Aries Gold Aerosmith limited edition watch is the brand’s latest collaboration, and one that offers a bold, loud, and eccentric look that matches the high-volume intensity of the band that inspired it.

Coming in at 46mm in diameter and 11mm thick, the Aries Gold Aerosmith limited edition isn’t a shy watch by any means. But, Aries Gold designed it to wear comfortably thanks to the large, curved lugs that integrate nicely with the genuine leather strap. Also, like many of their timepieces, Aries Gold is offering the watch in a variety of case colors to match your style. The watch also boasts 50m of water resistance in case those after-show pool parties get a little out of hand.

It’s also worth noting that the case features a near-bezel-less design, which leaves enough visual space to put the dial on display. This is important because the dial on the Aries Gold Aerosmith limited edition is beautifully three-dimensional. Moving from the hour/minute ring to the center, the dial steps down to a skeletonized layer that features a range of finishing varieties and a look at the movement. Legibility is aided by large (very large) dauphine-style hands coated with a thick application of lume. The same can be said for the big spear-tip seconds hand that extends well into and past the chapter ring.

Speaking of the lume, the watch’s most distinctive feature is of course the classic Aerosmith logo badge found at 12 o’clock. Designed by the band’s ex-guitarist, Ray Tabano, the logo has been around since circa 1974 and was a fitting choice for the watch. The entire badge features a full application of lume that results in a serious light show and excellent visibility in darker environments. All of this is displayed beautifully behind a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The watch comes with a free passport holder made of genuine leather.

Inside the Aries Gold Aerosmith limited edition is a Japanese automatic 82S0 movement supplied by Miyota. This movement is reliable, robust, and takes care of timekeeping duties with its low-maintenance and no-nonsense design. The Aries Gold Aerosmith limited edition is available in black, gold, rose gold, and silver case colors. Limited to 1,000 pieces, the watch is now available for a retail price of $489 USD and you can learn more by visiting the brand’s official site. ariesgold.com

    Oh, come on. As one who stayed in Singapore for 4+ years I know quite well that all the malls and kiosks are full of “Aries Gold”. Next will be Akribos XXIV or Stührling Original?

  • “An idea that sparks a watch collaboration can come from anywhere. Some
    brands look to the world of motorsports while others get their ideas

    Still others look to a washed up band that hasn’t released a musically relevant album since 1997. Did Lenny Kravitz collaborate on this?

  • Pete Pete

    the design sensibility of the dial feels like a combination of IWC and A. Lange & Söhne – both excellent brands to be associated with

  • ” we’re a trusted voice in the watch aficionado circles the world over,” – About A Blog to Watch.
    How does hawking this crap reinforce or support this mission statement? I get that it’s an ad, but one that borders on inappropriate for the ABTW core audience – watch enthusiasts. Just because we’re enthusiasts doesn’t mean we want to read about every horrid mall watch.

      ” we’re a trusted voice in the watch aficionado circles the world over,” – About A Blog to Watch. Where is that crap from??? Reading these boards for a year or more now, clearly ALMOST NOBODY thinks this. It’s just a blog that is popular because of VOLUME. Every day more pieces go up here than anywhere else by a large margin, so there is always something to check up on and there is a lively discussion board. “Trusted voice” is not a term that one could use for ABTW based on reading this board day in and day out. Not to say that ABTW doesn’t have a lot of positive qualities, of course — it does.

      you can quite literally have an article on strapped poop published here, as long as you call it a watch and abtw gets their cheque. if you pay premium, you can even have the comment section disabled. ask rubber b if you don’t believe it.

      maybe it’s just a misprint and the real name is ariel’s gold? who knows.

    So 489$ and 1000 pieces. That’s 489 grand (I know, I’m good at maths). Let’s say Aerosmith will make half of this – it’s probalby less – so 244.5 grand.
    That’s cheap to put the name of a kind of great rock band on a creepy watch.

  • Yan Fin

    What would possess anyone to want a passport holder with any group/artist logo?

    • Sheez Gagoo

      Eddie from Iron Maiden. Penicilin should help.

      Holly smoke! What a pity for a Daytona to end like this.

      • Beefalope

        It’s an improvement over the regular Daytona.

        Holly smoke! What a pity for a man to end like this.

    Aries Gold Aerosmith watch – AKA, The Joe Perry Project.

  • Marius

    The content published by ABTW over the last couple of days reminds me of a Turkish bazaar — it’s low-rent, shite, and creepy all at the same time.

    • Framlucasse

      This one certainly is a sommit.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    Craaazy, craaazy, craazy I go craazy.

  • BNABOD

    Dream on , dream on…..

  • Terance Hill

    The face off this watch is as pleasing as Steven Tyler’s face

  • Lurch

    They lost me as a potential customer when they mentioned Aerosmith.

  • Beefalope

    Suck watch honoring a suck band.

  • “This movement (has a) no-nonsense design”. OK, they did not say “Workhorse”, so everyone should be happy. Until you stop to consider that you really want a nonsense design movement. Or maybe not, I mean, who really needs a hand finished, fuse driven minute repeater with a tourbillon or a chronograph or even a GMT hand? And dates are nonsense too. A robust 3 hander with a rock band logo (that glows for a few hours) is all you really need, right?

    Seriously, this isn’t even a 9000 series Miyota movement.

    • Ulysses31

      “No-nonsense” is often a synonym for “crude” or “unsophisticated” in my book. I guess it’s a term that is intended to appeal to the target demographic that eschews subtle, ornate things.

    Get Your Wings……

  • Most “fashion” watches do nothing for me. This is no exception.

  • Mr. Snrub

    Has anyone, ever, met a guy who said his favorite band is…lol… Aerosmith? Serious question.

  • Ulysses31

    Aries Gold… sounds like a brand name of coffee or milk chocolate. 50 metres of water resistance isn’t very impressive – for rowdy pool parties, really? Is it also shock-proof? I have a penchant for throwing TVs out of hotel windows, it’s kinda rough on the old wrists.

  • slightlydetuned

    Really reasonable to put an automatic watch next to an electric guitar pickup …
