Raymond Weil Freelancer

The Raymond Weil Freelancer Silver Dial Watch opens its heart to you. An open aperture in the dial reveals the balance wheel in its entirety. However, for a full view of the RW1212 calibre in action, the watch can be flipped over and the movement viewed through the sapphire crystal caseback.

Case, dial, strap

Firstly, the refined 42.5mm polished stainless steel case is ergonomic in design. Secondly, the galvanic silver dial has elegantly shaped hour indexes. Additionally, the tips of each hour index along with the hour and minute hands are lined with white luminescent treatment. Consequently, their visibility is enhanced in poor light. Furthermore, the stainless steel crown screws-down to the case and is embossed with the RW logo. Similarly, the caseback is also screwed and has a sapphire crystal to allow a view of the movement. Finally, a black calf leather strap completes the look and a folding clasp with double push buttons secures it to the wrist.

Automatic Movement, Calibre RW1212

The Freelancer Calibre RW1212 is Raymond Weil’s first in-house movement. Designed in-house, it is manufactured through an exclusive partnership with movement manufacturer, Sellita. Furthermore, the name picks up the address of the address of the company: Switzerland 1212, standing for the Geneva suburb Grand-Lancy. With a 38 hour power reserve, it is also water resistant to 10 bars (100m) with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

    Unfortunately one of the quick-release watchstraps in my delivery was defective. I contacted Suzie, who immediately offered to send a replacement. The replacement arrived a few days later. I am very happy with both of my purchases from watch specialists.
