The Cello Freelancer from Raymond Weil
Raymond Weil continues their music obsession by launching a trio of music special edition watches, reflecting the subtleties that create distinguished musical instruments.
The first Music Special Edition watch has been crafted from their Freelancer model and is in collaboration with cello duet 2Cellos (signature on case back). This exclusive watch comes with a mechanical movement including chronograph, day and date complications and a 46-hour power reserve. The dense titanium case that holds the Raymond Weil’s master movements is held by a genuine leather ergonomic strap.
What truly makes this timepiece stand out from the crowd comes from Raymond Weil’s sheer attention to detail and respected approach to the design of the cello.
On closer inspection you will notice 4 circles that encompass the dial (representing the 4 strings on a cello); these are then caressed by a red chronograph hand that perfectly imitates a cello’s bow. The most extraordinary detail on the dial is the cello scroll, which swirls around the seconds sub dial in an almost textured black. The date and day window is also reminiscent of the cello and draws inspiration for its design from the bridge where the cello strings rest.
As you can visually see this timepiece not only comes with Raymond Weil’s expert craftsmanship ticking from the centre, but also their continued attention to detail that will forever set them apart from other watchmakers. Nowhere else will you find two of the most beautiful and respected crafts - music and watch making - so blissfully united.
