Raymond Weil Freelancer Skeleton

Embark on a journey into the depth of the movement with the Raymond Weil Freelancer Skeleton Watch. A wide aperture on the black galvanic dial offers a fascinating view of the automatic mechanism in action.

Case, Skeleton Dial, Strap

Firstly, the 42mm case is sleek and masculine in black PVD coated stainless steel. Secondly, the black dial has elegantly-shaped hour indexes in rose gold PVD. Additionally, the tips of each hour index and the hour and minute hands are lined with white luminescent treatment. Consequently, their visibility is enhanced in poor light. Furthermore, the crown screws-down to the case and is embossed with the RW logo. Similarly, the caseback is also screwed. Moreover, a black carbon fibre texture leather strap provides a technical look. Finally, a black PVD folding clasp with double push buttons secures it to the wrist.

Automatic Movement, Calibre RW1212

The Freelancer Skeleton is equipped with Raymond Weil’s first in-house movement: calibre RW1212. 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 a sapphire crystal.
