The RAYMOND WEIL Calibre RW1212: For The Modern Man Who Leads Without Fear

Since launching in 2007, the RAYMOND WEIL Freelancer model has been an echo of discerning taste for watch collectors the world over.

Why the Raymond Weil Freelancer Should Be Your Next Watch

Behind all those classic dress watches, there’s always been a certain audacity lying at the heart of RAYMOND WEIL. This, after all, is the underdog brand that dared to launch in 1976 when the quartz crisis was raging and the Swiss watch industry was teetering on the brink.

Pluckily sticking to his conviction that there was a gap in the market for an entry-level luxury watch, he quit his day-job and struck out alone. Forty-five years on, it’s fair to say the gamble has paid off. That bold spirit continues to inform the approach of one of the last remaining independent Swiss watchmakers (now headed by...

Quite a common pitfall...
