There is something special about owning a Raymond Weil. Every time I put on my Don Giovnnai given to me by one of Australia's watch kings Steven Rom, I feel a little more elegant. Diamonds are a girls best friend and well diamonds in a watch, even better!
Raymond Weil once again brings elegance to watchmaking, this time partnering with legendary aviation manufacturer Piper Aircraft Inc. to present its first-ever pilot watch: the freelancer Piper. Made of titanium and stainless steel, this 45mm freelancerfeatures a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement with date and GMT functions, making it easy for all experienced pilots to read. The shiny blue minute and hour hands resemble the aircraft’s rotor blades while the GMT hand, with its red pointer, references a compass. The small seconds sub-dialat 9 o’clock is inspired by the attitude indicator and the openwork black leather strap completes the aviator look of the timepiece. With its tachometric bezel, 100-meter water resistance and 46-hour power reserve, flying enthusiasts can set off to conquer the skies and discover new horizons above the clouds.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with best-in-class manufacturer, Piper Aircraft Inc. on our first-ever pilot watch. Raymond Weil was not only a visionary and daring entrepreneur but also a passionate pilot and the proud owner of a Piper plane", says Elie Bernheim, CEO of RAYMOND WEIL. "The freelancer Piper is a fitting homage to my grandfather and the invaluable heritage he left us. I am sure he would be immensely proud of this new introduction."
