Raymond Weil the new Freelancer



Relaxed and elegant, two adjectives that perfectly characterize the latest addition to the freelancer range. A collection that has enjoyed success since its launch, the freelancer has continued to evolve with its times while retaining its pure lines and natural distinction. Thus, with its steel case, black galvanic dial musically punctuated with red-colored notes here and there, the new freelancer is “Simply Class”.

freelancer, a name that recalls that RAYMOND WEIL is one of the last independent watchmakers. It also characterizes a collection that is constantly reinterpreting itself, free from all constraints, while still conserving those elements which constitute its strengths: beveled horns, graphic use of screws on the dial and date window showing 3 days.

With the freelancer Simply Class, RAYMOND WEIL is giving a new soul to its chronograph now a best-seller. Here, the combination of the deep black dial with the garnet red of the chronograph hands and tachometer numbers lends a sober, rhythmic elegance to the piece. Classically fitted with a black, saddle-stitched, calfskin leather strap, the case highlights the contrast between the polished and satin finishes, which are pleasing both to the eye and the touch. The steel-colored minute and hour hands are coated in a luminescent material providing night-time visibility. The polished steel applique, delicately surrounding the seconds dial at 9 o’clock and attached by means of a screw, adds the perfect finishing touch to this model, quite simply….classy.
