Perhaps no other complication is as versatile, popular, or useful as the chronograph. The right chronograph can be a staple of any enthusiast’s collection, offering a blend of functionality and sporty style that can adapt to nearly any setting. Raymond Weil is here to help enthusiasts find that perfect chronograph with a special giveaway, where one lucky winner will emerge with the refined and stylish Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph.
Measuring in at a bold 42mm in diameter, the stainless steel case of the Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph deftly balances sporting proportions with an elegantly upscale character. The tapering sharply faceted lugs and smoothly brushed bezel work to create a surprisingly lithe visual profile, counterweighted by the aggressive oversized crown and classic piston pushers. With brushed surfaces along the top of the case complemented by a slimming full polished finish along the case sides, the Freelancer Chronograph offers a versatile and masculine look that dresses up or down with equal aplomb. The Freelancer Chronograph showcases its beating automatic heart through a sapphire display caseback, giving wearers an in-depth look at the intricate movement within. Despite this decorative element, the Freelancer Chronograph is still durable enough for nearly any adventure, with a water resistance rating of 100 meters.
With the dial of the Freelancer Chronograph, Raymond Weil both highlights the watch’s complication and gives its base design a rich and nuanced visual texture. Each of the baton hands and matching applied indices features a gentle convex curve, introducing a harmonious rounded character to the design, while the subdials themselves stand out starkly from the cobalt blue background with clean white surfaces and bright polished accent rings. The main dial surface itself is far from plain, however, with a silky sunburst finish intersected by a contrasting ring with deep snailing that adds further visual depth.
At the heart of the Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph lies the RW5200 automatic chronograph movement. This elaboré grade powerplant offers a handsomely decorated custom rotor with perlage finishing, along with excellent accuracy of -5/+20 seconds per day. Power reserve performance is also solid, rated at 48 hours at a 28,800 bph beat rate. Raymond Weil injects the watch with an added dose of vintage sporting character through the double-stitched saddle brown calf leather strap, mounted on a luxurious two-button deployant clasp. MSRP for the Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph is $2,695.
