Luxury Swiss watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL has created a special watch from their Music Icons series, the freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition, to pay tribute to legendary Rock and Roll Hall of famers AC/DC.
This exclusive watch incorporates the in-house developed Calibre RW1212 movement, allowing onlookers to view the rocking “Alternating Current/Direct Current” balance within the timepiece.
Measuring 42 mm in diameter, the freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition exudes a notable air of masculinity. Lined with luminescent treatment, slender hour and minute hands articulate the time with lucid dialogue. To reinforce the rock and roll attitude of the timepiece, the hours are marked with studded indexes.
The black dial features a textured pattern recalling the AC/DC high voltage bolt graphics. It sits adjacent to the iconic AC/DC typography placed at 12 o’clock. The powerful rock credentials are reaffirmed through the black leather strap, adorned with the AC/DC logo.
Limited to 3,000 numbered pieces, freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition houses an in-house, self-winding movement, the Calibre RW1212 that offers a stage opening on the lower part of the dial allowing onlookers to view the rocking “Alternating Current/Direct Current”1 balance.
Each of the freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition will be presented with a specially designed watch case and a corresponding certificate of authenticity.
