OK, so the David Bowie lightning bolt memorial in south London won’t be happening after all. Though for a good chunk of cash, fans can remember the Starman wherever they go with a limited edition timepiece.

Swiss luxury watchmaker Raymond Weil has unveiled its “David Bowie Freelancer,” a timepiece that “celebrates the legendary icon’s musicality, style and unmatched innovation.”

To mark what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday, the watch features an Aladdin Sane lightning bolt on its face and Terry O’Neill’s iconic 1974 portrait of the late star is on its case-back.

The watch was created in collaboration with the David Bowie Estate and announced via the singer’s social media channels.

He embodies the free spirit that has guided Raymond Weil day after day since it was created.”

Just 3,000 of the watches have been manufactured and numbered for release later in the year.

It’s been 15 months since Bowie lost his battle with cancer, but his legacy continues to grow. The legendary artist was posthumously awarded two of the biggest prizes at the 37th Brit Awards earlier this year, for best British album award for Blackstar and British male, and he scooped five prizes at the Grammy Awards (having previously collected just one during his lifetime).

Bowie came in at No. 2 behind Drake on the IFPI’s top 10 ranking of the Global Recording Artists of 2016, thanks to the extraordinary success of what turned out to be his final studio album.
