Raymond Weil - Freelancer Calibre RW1212 Skeleton

Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre RW1212 Skeleton

Raymond Weil's second in-house movement endows this new Freelancer model with even more depth and character.

The Freelancer Calibre RW1212 Skeleton is presented in three different executions, offering three very different personalities: the full black PVD plated version with rose gold indexes and hands offers modernity and urban style, while the brown leather strap brings attitude and elegance to the rose gold and stainless steel two-tone model. Finally, the total stainless steel look featuring blue indexes and hands offers a more cosmopolitan feel. This timepiece is a two hand model providing an understated display of the hours and minutes.

The Freelancer Calibre RW1212 Skeleton houses Raymond Weil's second in-house designed movement, the exclusive Calibre RW1212 Skeleton, a mechanical self-wound movement. While working on the initial design of the Calibre RW1212 (the brand's first in-house calibre), the R&D team at Raymond Weil redesigned and pared down all the elements closely relating to the mechanism so as to endow this exclusive in-house movement with even more depth and character. 

Framed by a 42mm steel case, the movement’s assembly and open-worked details are key to the final horological aesthetic of this timepiece. The Calibre RW1212 beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 38-hour power reserve. Its Raymond Weil engraved oscillating weight has been skeletonized to increase the transparency of the timepiece.
The open-worked dial of the timepiece reveals most of the sophisticated movement with an intricate perlage finish. The distinctive characteristic remains the 6 o’clock front dial positioning of its visible balance wheel. The dial, however, has been opened, exposing the manufacturing beauty and highlighting the richness of watchmaking expertise, whilst infusing it with its distinctive free-spirited attitude.
