Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi has joined Swiss watchmaker Hamilton to create a limited-edition Ventura POGGYTHEMAN inspired by none other than Elvis Presley, aka the King.

Retaining the iconic shape of the Ventura, the collaboration sees the PVD-coated stainless steel case and dial completely blacked out — a tribute to the model’s original design in 1957. A playful dash of color comes in the form of a bright pink logo and hour markers, inspired by the suits Elvis used to wear on stage, providing a welcome contrast to the otherwise subtle color scheme. Protecting the Swiss-made quartz movement is a caseback engraved with Poggy’s image, which adds a nice touch of detailing in honor of the fashion icon. Tying the entire look together is a black calf leather strap with bright pink lining, perfectly complementing the watch.

Limited to just 500 pieces, the Motofumi Kogi x Hamilton Limited-Edition Ventura POGGYTHEMAN is now available over on the Swiss brand’s online store, going for CHF 945, or roughly $946 USD. Head over to grab yours now.
