The Geneva watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL announces a prestigious new addition to the freelancer mechanical collection: the freelancer pink gold date chronograph. With its refined aesthetics, blending modernity and technical knowhow, the new chronograph symbolizes the Brand’s spirit of elegance and distinction.
A sober dial in matt black, and a case in brushed, polished 18-carat pink gold, give this new version of the freelancer a daring, original look.
Along with the geometric contrast between the sharp-angled indexes and circular subdials, the choice of pink gold adds to the timepiece’s distinguished appearance. Extra dynamism comes from curved arc date-window at 3 o’clock, flanked by a horizontal aperture for the days of the week.
Each of the three subdials (minutes at 12 o’clock, hours at 6, small seconds at 9) has its own personality, differing in size and surround (applique or diamond-studded). Although it is the smallest dial of the three, the small seconds subdial stands out with its pink gold applique and accompanying screw, which reinforces the chronograph’s innovative visual appeal.
The mechanical movement, with circular graining to the oscillating weight, has a 46-hour power-reserve and 28,800 vibrations per hour. To start (or stop) the chronograph function, simply press the push-piece at 2 o’clock, then re-set by using a second push-piece at 4 o’clock.
The freelancer pink gold date chronograph has an impressive 42mm diameter case and a dark brown, full-skin alligator strap with saddle-stitching, complete with folding clasp with double push-piece security.
