RAYMOND WEIL is proud to unveil a stunning new addition to the flagship Raymond Weil freelancer Calibre RW1212 range; this time, in a striking green. This deep coloured freelancer Calibre RW1212 is brand new to the market for Spring 2020.
In 2017, RAYMOND WEIL meticulously developed an exclusive inhouse movement produced by the manufacturer Sellita. Paying tribute to the brand’s Swiss origins, RAYMOND WEIL named this movement Calibre RW1212. It is a nod to the postal code of the company’s global headquarters, Grand-Lancy. The movement is a testament to over 40 years of the finest Swiss watch-making traditions and expertise. Therefore, it was only fitting that this automatic movement be housed in it’s bestselling freelancer.
Today, RAYMOND WEIL announces the 2780-STC-52001 with bold green accents. A model that has been carefully curated with 2020’s colour palette in mind, this luxury Swiss watch is a must-have for any watch collector.
This latest addition to the freelancer collection features a 42 mm stainless steel dial framed by a green satin chapter ring with silver indices, Clous de Paris in the centre and a seconds train on the outside.
Taking centre stage of this timepiece is the visible balance wheel located above the 6 o’clock position; an open aperture design to highlight RAYMOND WEIL’s bespoke mechanical movement with automatic winding. This delicate aperture gives a fascinating view into RW1212 Calibre movement, revealing the oscillating balance wheel, the pulsating hairspring and the vibrating pallet lever.
A mesmerising view, the insight into the slender two-spoke balance bridge and escape wheel is housed in sapphire crystal with antiglare treatment on both sides of the case, a screwed-down crown with a RW monogram logo and a combination of both satin and polished stainless steel detailing. The 2780-STC-52001 is complimented by matching deep green strap made from synthetic textiles and completed with a RAYMOND WEIL’s stainless steel folding clasp with double push-security system.
This new timepiece completes the freelancer Calibre RW1212 range for RAYMOND WEIL, the flagship collection for him from the luxury Swiss watchmaking Maison.
