RAYMOND WEIL is enhancing their Maestro line with new maestro Quantième à Aiguille (maestro with calendar hand).
The maestro collection symbolizes both the deep attachment on the part of the founding family and owner of RAYMOND WEIL to its watchmaking roots, but also to its permanent source of inspiration, music.
“Maestro” means “master”, a person who excels in the practice of his art. In music, this word refers to the esteem commanded by a grand personality, composer or conductor. The collection of the same name, created by RAYMOND WEIL in 2010, certainly evidences all the mastery of a watchmaker, who knows how to synchronize the rhythms of tradition and innovation.
As its name indicates, the maestro Quantième à Aiguille has two indicators at 3 and 9 o’clock, displaying the temporal passage of the date and the seconds respectively.
Housed in a steel case with a diameter of 41mm, enhanced with a brown leather alligator style strap, the silver dial is embellished with a sunray guilloché decoration in the central zone and a concentric musical stave motif, punctuated by black transfer Roman numerals.
The blued steel type hands add their own rhythm to the dial’s overall harmony. The sapphire glass of the case back reveals the mechanical complication, constituting the maestro’s heart, equipped with 33 jewels and generating a power reserve of 38 hours.
