Raymond Weil freelancer diver Geneva Limited Edition

With the new freelancer diver Geneva Limited Edition, RAYMOND WEIL pays tribute to Geneva, the city where the brand was founded and continues to call home.

RAYMOND WEIL was established in 1976 in Geneva. Now, the Maison celebrates its close ties with the city by releasing a new version of its popular freelancer diver model. The RAYMOND WEIL freelancer diver Geneva Limited Edition pays tribute to Lake Geneva, widely known as ‘Lac Léman’, the most recognisable landmark of the city.

The new freelancer diver watch is equipped with the Calibre RW4200, a Swiss automatic movement with a power reserve of 38 hours. The model is water resistant to 310m, the depth of Lac Léman. Indeed, it is this latter figure which also inspired RAYMOND WEIL to limit production of this divers’ watch to just 310 pieces.

Endowed with a blue gradient dial, the freelancer diver Geneva Limited Edition pays tribute to Lac Léman. Mid-blue tones populate the upper reaches of the dial. This transition to dark blue hues adjacent to 6 o’clock evokes the deepest, darkest parts of the lake.

The barrel-shaped hour and minute hands converse with applied indexes. Both the hands and indexes are treated with Super-LumiNova®, aiding readability in dim light conditions. During the day this luminescent material appears light grey, inspired by the mountains that look down on the lake, however in the dim light it radiates a blue emission.

Another reference to water and the lake is the drop-shaped date aperture at 6 o’clock. The design of each numeral on the date disc has been optimally shaped to improve legibility. This notion of legibility also extends to the central sweep seconds hand which features a ‘lollipop’, a useful feature when exploring the lake underwater.

The 42.5mm stainless steel case features a scratch-resistant, rotating black ceramic bezel. As diving convention dictates, the bezel is unidirectional and readability is assured courtesy of its light-grey count-up scale and the Super-LumiNova® marker at 12 o’clock.

The screwed-down steel case-back is engraved with a depiction of the ‘Jet d’Eau’, the famous Genevan landmark.
