In line with the great Swiss watchmaking tradition, the freelancer collection is being expanded to include a date chronograph.
With its matt black dial, refined style and contemporary colours, freelancer’s new date chronograph adopts a daringly minimalist feel, in perfect keeping with the collection’s original spirit. Space is shared ingeniously by the various functions – hours, minutes, seconds, chronograph and date – to give the RAYMOND WEIL freelancer date chronograph a sophisticated look.
The new date chronograph has a circular-grained oscillating weight and mechanical self-winding movement with 46-hour power-reserve and 28 800 vibrations per hour. The chronograph can be started or stopped by pressing a button at 2 o’clock; a second push-button at 4 ensures an immediate return to zero.
This contemporary model stands out with its original, geometric contrasts. The sharp-angled indexes offer a smooth, harmonious contrast to the circular subdials, with the minutes at 12 o’clock, hours at 6, and small seconds at 9. The subdials are not all the same size: the small-seconds is slightly smaller than the other two, yet has plenty of character and a surprising design, with its ring and adjacent screw, underlining the steel chronograph’s authentic cachet.
The curved date window at 3, flanked by a horizontal window for the days of the week, adds extra visual dynamism to the watch’s architecture. The 42mm-diameter RAYMOND WEIL freelancer date chronograph can be worn with either a dark brown leather strap or a steel bracelet with double push-piece security.
It all adds up to a masculine watch with a sober, balanced look – exuding style and personality!
