Raymond Weil Unveil ‘Music Special Edition’ Triad

Raymond Weil News & Releases

Raymond Weil have never made any secret about the fact that music is at the epicentre of their horological world, and so the recent announcement about three ‘music special edition’ watches is perhaps an unsurprising development to hear about. However, the fact that this approach isn’t a departure from Raymond Weil’s established patterns is in no way negative, as the passion that this brand possesses for music of all descriptions has resulted in a breathtaking triad of exclusive timepieces. We can’t currently claim to have access to all of these wristwatches, but we certainly couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring you more information about this very exciting release.

 

The Freelancer Cello

The first of these music special edition watches is a Raymond Weil Freelancer timepiece, and has been produced in conjunction with the talented Croatian cellist duo 2Cellos. Designed to promote the 2Cellos charity venture – a commitment that strives to improve the accessibility of musical instruments and practice – this Freelancer is a thoroughly intriguing work of art, and harbours several small trimmings that can’t be found anywhere else.

As well as all of the usual technical capabilities, like a chronograph function and a 46 hour power reserve, the timepiece evokes the aesthetics of a cello using a pattern of strings that encircles the dial, a bow-shaped chronograph hand, a date indicator that mimics the form of a cello bridge and a scrolling motif around the seconds sub-dial. The end result, capped by as caseback that features the signatures of the collaborating artists, is subtle, yet undeniably unique.

 

The Maestro Guitar

Secondly, we have a wristwatch that comes from the Raymond Weil Maestro family. Fashioned under the eye of award-winning classical guitarist Miloš Karadagli?, this special edition is again intended to raise the profile and provide funds for Karadagli?’s personal charity work; an undertaking that Raymond Weil were doubtless happy to support, given Karadagli?’s status as the patron of one of their partner charities.

In terms of the watch itself, a bespoke RW4200 automatic movement lies within the casing, and the intricacies of this mechanism are fully visible through a decorative aperture on the dial (a signature detail of many other Raymond Weil watches). Even more unusual is the delicate rosette design around the inner dial, the tiny golden plectrum at 6 o’clock, and the fret-like position of the indexes upon the engraved outer dial. All told, the completed timepiece is irrefutably classy.

 

The Freelancer Electro

Lastly, we have a Freelancer timepiece that was created to endorse the charity of English singer-songwriter Labrinth, and perhaps unexpectedly this ‘Electro’ music special edition watch is very restrained in terms of aesthetics. Like the Cello timepiece, the caseback is inscribed with the appropriate signature, and the rose gold PVD plated bezel and brown leather strap imbue the piece with a sense of real warmth, but it’s the detail on the dial that really sets this watch apart.

The silver dial is embellished with a three-dimensional labyrinthine ornamentation, and the distinctive appearance of a music equaliser has also been cunningly woven into the space between the indexes. It’s fair to say that the Freelancer assemblage has always been typified by free-spirited design, but we really do think that Raymond Weil have excelled themselves within this astounding blend of contemporary and classical charm.
