Mixing bronze with a skeletonized movement results in a whole new look for Raymond’s Weil’s Freelancer

Raymond Weil’s Freelancer collection was first launched in 2007 with an urban-inspired design that was developed with the free-thinking man in mind. This spring the brand is presenting a whole new look with a combination of its in-house skeletonized Calibre 1212 and a solid bronze bezel.

“Calibre RW1212 is a tribute to the present and a symbol of the future,” shares Elie Bernheim, Raymond Weil’s CEO. “Its name picks up the digits of our address here in Switzerland: 1212, standing for the Geneva suburb Grand-Lancy. It symbolizes the path we have travelled to date and the free-spirited approach we bring to watchmaking. It is our first in-house movement, born from our partnership with the Swiss movement manufacturer Sellita.”

This mechanical self-winding Calibre RW1212 beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 38-hour power reserve. The oscillating weight has also been engraved and skeletonized to increase the transparency of the timepiece.

The skeleton version of this movement saw its debut in 2018 and has resulted in a number of attractive timepieces with different treatments that each give the Freelancer a new look, with black and silver-coloured treatments.

For this new version, Raymond Weil has framed its in-house skeletonized automatic movement with a new solid bronze bezel that will evolve over time as the metal develops a rich patina, ultimately making the timepiece unique to each owner. In addition to the bronze bezel, the skeletonized dial comes with a matt grey finish that brings a new look to the timepiece, while keeping the transparency and depth that highlights the balance wheel at six o’clock.

The Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre 1212 Skeleton is housed in a 42mm stainless steel case, is water-resistant to 100 meters, has a screwed-down crown, and anti-glare sapphire crystals, both front and back. The timepiece indicates the hours and minutes and comes on an aged brown calfskin leather strap with a stainless-steel folding clasp with a double push-security system.

The Freelancer collection is famous for always reinventing itself and the Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre 1212 Skeleton is a testament to this. At an attractive CHF 2,990 (including VAT) its price is also as seductive as its design!
