Like many Raymond Weil watches, the Maestro Cushion has a traditional looking textured dial with a sunray texture in the middle surrounded by Roman numerals. They like to play up a Breguet look with their own version of pomme-style hands thrown into the mix. The blue-colored hands are nice, and actually aid in legibility as they contrast very well with the silvery dial. Raymond Weil also does a good job of incorporating a subtle date window in the dial which is easy to not notice when you want to forget it is there.

Inside of the Maestro Cushion is a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic that Ramond Weil seems to call their caliber RW 4200. You can view the automatic movement through the sapphire crystal case back window on the rear of the watch.

Odd or not, the Raymond Weil Maestro Cushion is an appealing watch if you are into this sort of thing. It is comfortable and classic enough to blend in but offers a subtle difference in the case shape the seems to change everything. While the price is still good, Raymond Weil priced the Maestro Cushion about $200 more than similar round-cased watches. It feels a bit high, but then again crystals in this shape cost more, and so do cases when it comes to production. The steel on steel version is the ref. 2867-ST-00659 and the gold-toned version is the 2867-PC-00695. Price for the Raymond Weil Maestro Cushion watch will be either $1,695 or $1,750 depending on the version, available in November 2013. raymond-weil.com
