Dedicated to globetrotters, this self-winding watch is 40.5mm in diameter and has a thickness of 9.7mm, despite the intricate nature of a mechanical GMT complication.

It dial features a rotating track, marked with one prominent city for each time zone. The city disc sits adjacent a 24-hour scale, indicating the relevant hour in the location shown and whether it is day/night. Barrel-shaped hour and minute hands indicate the ‘local time’.

To display the local time for the current location, the wearer simply rotates the crown at 4 o’clock, positioning the name of the local city adjacent to the prevailing hour. In addition to displaying the local time for the current location, the city disc simultaneously shows the relevant hour for each of the remaining 23 time zones.

In addition to the rotating city disc, a black GMT hand, featuring a prominent triangular red and white tip, indicates the prevailing hour at home. A highly legible lollipop hand completes the set of hands.

The RAYMOND WEIL freelancer GMT Worldtimer is available in two versions, one with a black dial and the other with a green dial. The black dial is paired with a stainless steel case coated with black DLC.

The green dial option features a stainless steel case, but in this instance it is matched with a bronze bezel and two bronze crowns. Bronze acquires an attractive patina with time. With its khaki tones and bronze accents, this military style model is an ideal timekeeper for adventurous types.

While the two watches exhibit different characters, they both incorporate gradient dial tones. The progression from dark to light not only heightens the visual allure of each dial option, but also serves as a means of indicating the transition from day to night. The hands and indexes are treated with Super-LumiNova®, emitting either a blue or green glow.

The freelancer GMT Worldtimer is equipped with the new Calibre RW3230, a Swiss automatic movement with a power reserve of 50 hours. Measuring just 4.1mm in height, the modest thickness of the movement has led to the new model’s elegant, slender profile.

The Calibre RW3230 hosts a number traditional watchmaking decorations honoring RAYMOND WEIL’s well-regarded reputation. The lower part of the bridges is adorned with perlage, the barrel cover is snailed and the top part of the bridges and oscillating mass are embellished with Côtes de Genève motif. The movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal exhibition case back.
