Crystal clear: Raymond Weil debuts first Freelancer Full Skeleton Automatic timepiece

Swiss luxury watchmaker Raymond Weil has expanded its line of Freelancer timepieces, with its first official full Skeleton watch, the RW1212 Skeleton Automatic.

With the wide aperture on its black galvanic dial offering an endlessly fascinating look at the automatic winding mechanism – the oscillating balance wheel, the pulsating hairspring and the vibrating pallet lever – the new Skeleton edition combines see-through components with rose gold detail.  

The balance-and-spring assembly is held by a single bridge, in the style of a classic tourbillon. 

The Skeleton Automatic features a stainless steel 42mm diameter case with black PVD coating, its dial is framed by a chapter ring with silver indices, Clous de Paris in the centre. It’s complimented by a genuine calf leather strap featuring a stainless steel folding clasp with black PVD coating and double push-security system.

Water resistant to 100m, the model has a 38-hour power reserve, with a screw-down crown. It’s also available in a rose dial iteration.

Launched more than a decade ago, the Raymond Weil Freelancer collection spans a variety of stylish mechanical watches (we’ve a particular fondness for the Jimi Hendrix limited edition). The design language is sporty, but not overtly so.

The automatic mechanism features in a range of chronograph, diver, and open aperture watches.
