In 2013, four models will represent important phases in Elvis’ career from 1954 to 1977.

Aqua was selected to represent the 1950s, a hue that would have been found on two-tone automobiles and early electric guitars. Its pocket clip recalls a period jukebox. Green is the colour that marks 1958, the year Elvis was drafted into the US Army. Reminiscent of the period when Elvis was in uniform. Black represents 1968 - the year of Elvis' “comeback special,” in which he wore his famous black leather outfit. White was selected for the ultimate model in the quartet, representing 1973 – the year of the ground-breaking “Aloha From Hawaii” broadcast
