“In 1974, I was 16 and Graham was still a sleeping beauty. The Swiss watch industry was hardly challenged by cheaper and accurate Quartz watches made in Japan. In this old days, Eric Clapton interpreted “I shot the Sheriff” in his album 461 Ocean Road, making an iconic Rock interpretation of Bob Marley’s Reggae creation. The song has multiple layers and we do not know even today its original intent. But its destiny is very interesting. It marked all young aficionados by exposing the merge of English and Jamaican music. People united under the same melody of liberation, creativity and the importance of sharing cultures. Thank you Bob and Eric, you made us a new world of music!”Eris Loth, Founder & Principal Partner Graham 1695
