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.

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 Freelander 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
