RAYMOND WEIL has created a stunning new addition to the flagship freelancer Calibre RW1212 range; this time, in a striking green. This deep coloured freelancer Calibre RW1212 is brand new to the market for Spring 2020.
In 2017, RAYMOND WEIL meticulously developed an exclusive in-house movement produced by the manufacturer Sellita. Paying tribute to the brand’s Swiss origins, RAYMOND WEIL named this movement Calibre RW1212. It is a nod to the postal code of the company’s global headquarters, Grand-Lancy. The movement is a testament to over 40 years of the finest Swiss watch-making traditions and expertise. Therefore, it was only fitting that this automatic movement be housed in its bestselling freelancer.
Now, RAYMOND WEIL announces the 2780-STC-52001 with bold green accents. A model that has been carefully curated with 2020’s colour palette in mind, this luxury Swiss watch is a must-have for any watch collector.
This latest addition to the freelancer collection features a 42 mm stainless steel dial framed by a green satin chapter ring with silver indices, Clous de Paris in the centre and a seconds train on the outside.
Taking centre stage of this timepiece is the visible balance wheel located above the 6 o’clock position; an open aperture design to highlight RAYMOND WEIL’s bespoke mechanical movement with automatic winding. This delicate aperture gives a fascinating view into RW1212 Calibre movement, revealing the oscillating balance wheel, the pulsating hairspring and the vibrating pallet lever.
A mesmerizing view, the insight into the slender two-spoke balance bridge and escape wheel is housed in sapphire crystal with antiglare treatment on both sides of the case, a screwed-down crown with a RW monogram logo and a combination of both satin and polished stainless steel detailing. The 2780-STC-52001 is complimented by matching deep green strap made from synthetic textiles and completed with a RAYMOND WEIL’s stainless steel folding clasp with double push-security system.
