Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil has given its latest Freelancer timepiece a fresh new look that celebrates its vintage personality, without sacrificing classic legibility – and we think the result is a stunner.
It’s practical, complex and undeniably classy. This is an everyday watch, for those whose days are always extraordinary (our caveat, by the way).
The new Freelancer Automatic Chronograph features a round 42mm titanium-coloured stainless-steel case, satin finished steel crown with RW monogram, and an inverted colour scheme featuring a deep blue satin-brushed dial and sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.
Practical, complex and undeniably classy. This Freelancer is an everyday watch, for those whose days are always extraordinary…
Vintage inspiration can be seen in the day date window at 3 o’clock, and circular tachymeter scale. We like the way the dial now contrasts with the three beige chronograph counters, and nickel plated hands.
Thanks to a Super-LumiNova coating, those slender hands and indexes ensure full readability in the dark. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective, durable coating.
The 7732-TIC-50421 is powered by a mechanical self-winding RW5200 movement that provides a 48-hour power reserve, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour,
This latest Raymond Weil Freelancer comes with an antique brown calf leather strap, secured by a stainless-steel folding clasp with a double push-button safety system. The screwed-down steel case back is water resistance up to 100 meters.
The new Freelancer watch sells for £2,495,and is available at Raymond-Weil.co.uk
