Freelancer Date Chronograph

Contemporary colours, pure design, sober outlines… the first date chronograph from the mechanical freelancer collection by the Geneva watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL is full of character and urban personality: an audacious blend of technique and modernity.

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!
