Swiss watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and is marking the occasion with a new addition, the freelancer skeleton, to its flagship timepiece collection.
Sleek and stylish, this new 42.5mm freelancer showcases the watchmaking know-how behind each of the independent Company’s designs produced by the in-house Research & Development department since its inception in 1999.
Black all over – from its PVD-coated steel case to its calfskin leather strap – the freelancer skeleton plays with contrasts, alternating between see-through components and sophisticated rose gold detailing which catches the light.
The central hour, minute and second hands as well as the indexes are rose gold plated, and two sapphire crystals seal the various components.
The wide aperture on the black galvanic dial invites you on a journey to the heart of the automatic winding mechanism featuring a 38 -hour power reserve. It offers a perfect view of the meticulous circular-grained bridges and ruthenium finish of the Swiss Made skeleton movement.
Paying homage to the Brand’s independence and the visionary spirit of its founder, the freelancer collection was launched in 2006 by the third generation of the family. It has since become RAYMOND WEIL’s signature collection as well as its bestseller.
