Raymond Weil Watch - FREELANCER Automatic Chronograph
Take it on the road and make it your own.
RAYMOND WEIL unveils the new freelancer bi-compax chronograph 7780, an eye-catching vintage-inspired watch perfectly suited to free thinkers and creative individuals.
The symmetrical bi-compax layout features a 30-minute chronograph counter and a small seconds display. The golden hour and minute hands are generously proportioned and, in conjunction with the applied indexes, prove highly legible. The hour track is snailed, while the hands and indexes feature luminescent treatment, augmenting readability in restricted light. The colour of the central chronograph seconds hand, the hand on the 30-minute register and the numerals on the pulsometer scale are all presented in blue shades.
A date display is positioned at 6 o’clock, once again contributing to the overall symmetry of the dial. The date disc is presented in black, matching the colour of the dial, a detail much appreciated by watch enthusiasts. The tachymeter scale, presented on the bezel, provides the means to determine the speed of a motorbike, or vehicle of your choice, over a known distance. Residing on a golden-toned flange, a pulsometer scale allows the wearer to determine the heart rate of an individual. A notable characteristic of this dial is that it wonderfully plays with shades, depths and textures, contributing to the watch’s sophisticated appearance.
The movement, the Calibre RW5030, is visible via the exhibition case back. Once again, the attention to detail is clear to see. For example, the watch is fitted with a W-shaped skeleton oscillating weight, a reference to the founder’s surname. A further attribute of this automatic movement is that assuming the mainspring is fully wound, the watch will run autonomously for 56 hours. The watch comes on a black calf leather strap. It is enlivened with contrasting stitching and paired with a titanium folding clasp equipped with a double push-security system.
