Adam Clayton collects watches and is now thinking of designing one.
"I have in mind a timeless piece," said Adam Clayton to Bilanz. Our favorite bass player wants to launch his own watch "that can be worn on any occasion" and a series of features like a "metal bracelet."
He wants to throw his watch with the Swiss manufacturer H. Moser & Cie Moser . CEO Edouard Meylan is a friend of Clayton's and is well known for his passion for watches .
When he was a child still in the seaside town of Malahide northeast of Dublin, his uncle gave him a "Submariner" Rolex watch.
How many watches does Adam Clayton have now? He's not sure, "10 to 15 watches. A couple of models of Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Rolex and Omega have just arrived home .
Adam Clayton appreciates "the craftsmanship of classic watches." And he admits he does not wear a watch on stage when he plays with U2:
"No, I do not know what time it is.I do not want anyone in the audience thinking that I'm constantly looking at the time, it would be a bad sign.
"It is also impractical. "During concerts, I am full of energy and I'm constantly active".
