The Watch is a 5 member Italian progressive rock band from Milan. Their music is inspired by classic progressive rock style of the 1970s and in particular by the music of Genesis. Melody and energy are the main aspects of The Watch music and the live dimension is one of the greatest features of the band. The line up of the band has changed several times through the years, in particular since 2007. Simone Rossetti, founder and main composer has been the band's singer since it began. Simone Stucchi has produced all The Watch records (except for Timeless) and followed the band on stage as sound engineer until June 2011. Since the end of 2008 the band has the best line up ever, according to Simone Rossetti's words, in fact the band activity is expanding. In January 2010 they embarked on a long tour, visiting Europe, Canada and United States, playing a Genesis tribute live show, which has been repeated in 2011.
