Raymond Weil has announced that is partnering with aviation manufacturer Piper Aircraft Inc. to introduce the Freelancer Piper. It will be the first pilot watch in Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil’s collection.
The 45 mm watch will be produced using titanium and stainless steel and will contain an in-house RW5020 mechanical self-winding movement. It will include central hours, minutes and small seconds functions, whilst a central GMT hand and date window will also be on offer.
The chronograph functions will additionally offer a start, stop and restart push-button at 2 o’clock, a central chronograph hand, a 30 minutes counter at 12 o’clock, a 12 hours counter at 6 o’clock and a tachometer scale.
The design of the watch is complemented by its black dial that features Arabic numerals that have been coated with luminescent material, allowing them to clearly be read in a variety of lighting conditions. It is finished with a sapphire crystal seethrough caseback that allows the wearer to observe the mechanism itself.
Each timepiece will be supplied on a black open work genuine leather strap with a RW titanium and stainless steel folding clasp that is complete with a double-push button security system.
The Raymond Weil Freelancer Piper will boast a minimum power reserve of approximately 46 hours and is water resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 meters or 330 feet).
