After the sensational success of its automatic freelancer Calibre RW1212 Skeleton, Swiss watch brand RAYMOND WEIL presents its latest open-worked model with an ultra-modern appeal.
Although the latest freelancer skeleton watch (reference 2785-STC-65001) discloses many of its movement parts, the optimum readability has been ensured with the judicious application of colour. The Blue Skeleton Leather Strap freelancer will be available exclusively at Goldsmiths.
The new blue freelancer 2785 model benefits from the success of earlier open-worked models by RAYMOND WEIL.
The new RAYMOND WEIL freelancer 2785 shares some details in common with its forebears, but looks decidedly fresh. The barrel-shaped hour and minute hands are lined with a liberal application of white Super-LumiNova®, heightening readability.
The hours are mainly denoted with plump Arabic numerals, again enlivened with white Super-LumiNova®. A blue flange encircles the open-worked dial and is marked with a minute track, facilitating ease of read-off.
In the upper region of the dial, an open-worked barrel reveals the mainspring in various states of tension. Furthermore, inquisitive eyes are indulged with views of the keyless works, the gear train and motion works.
At the base of the dial, the balance wheel oscillates to and for the delectation of the wearer, while the pallet lever, positioned beyond, can be seen conversing with the escape wheel. Black hues are employed throughout, helping to accentuate the various disclosed components.
The specially designed skeleton movement (Calibre RW1212) was created in partnership with Sellita. The main plate and bridges are milled using a CNC machine, working to tolerances measured in Hundredths of millimetres. Various calculations are made using computer modelling in order to ensure the rigidity of the movement is optimised, thereby conferring precision and reliability.
This contemporary watch has a stainless steel case 42.5mm diameter. It is fitted on a neoteric calf leather strap paired with a stainless steel folding clasp with double push- security system.
The Raymond Weil Freelancer Blue Skeleton watch is available exclusively at Goldsmiths.co.uk. It approximate retail price is £2,595.
