Reinventing Raymond Weil’s Emblematic Chronograph

Redesigned to combine sophistication with a powerful look, Raymond Weil’s newest edition of its best-seller, chronograph, embodies the freelancer collection’s free-spirit. Raymond Weil, luxury Swiss watchmaker, unveils its newest edition to the ever-successful freelancer family, with the introduction of its new chronograph range, expressing the youthful and dynamic spirit that the freelancer range is renowned for.

This Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph combines sophistication with a powerful and extremely stylish aesthetic. Its 42.5mm steel case, water resistant to 100 meters, is geared up for intense practices thanks to its robust construction which incorporates years of carefully handed down watchmaking know-how. Powered by a mechanical self-winding movement providing a 46-hour power reserve, the latest addition to the freelancer collection comes in several styles, featuring a silver-toned or black dial teamed with a steel case and bracelet, or with a leather strap. Its screw-down crown, tachymeter or engine turned bezel options and its chronograph complication ensures that the timepiece is the ideal companion for any activity or occasion.

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
