We all know that rappers love fine wristwatches but the rockers don’t get quite as much attention for their timepiece selections.
So we thought it interesting when author and contributor to WWR’s early days Thomas Scott McKenzie dug up this photo of Slash wearing what appears to be a Breitling Chronomat with UTC module. At the time, Scott was making the rounds on the hard rock festival circuit in research for his new book Power Chord: One Man’s Ear-Splitting Quest to Find His Guitar Heroes. He interviewed famous rockers such as Phil Collen from Def Leppard, the guys from Judas Priest, the stable of KISS guitarists, and others. Along the way, he shot a ton of concerts and soundchecks.
This photo of Slash and the Breitling was filed away with the rest of the research and source materials for Power Chord. But as Scott’s been doing tons of interviews for the book’s release, he came across this photo and thought we’d get a kick out of it.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
