Raymond Weil Two-Tone Freelancer Visible Balance Wheel Watch Review

 

Raymond Weil has unveiled the new Freelancer Visible Balance Wheel - the first two-tone steel and rose gold watch in the Freelancer collection.

Described as "full of style and personality", the timepiece reveals the balance of its mechanical movement at 12 o'clock. "As the collection’s first piece in two-tone steel and rose gold, the Freelancer Visible Balance Wheel has its place right at the top of the year 2013’s hit parade," the brand says.

The Raymond Weil Freelancer Visible Balance Wheel has a 42 mm steel case with a rose-coloured bezel and crown. The black dial features rose gold indexes and hands, and a Clou de Paris guilloche decorates the centre of the dial. It has a sapphire crystal with dual-sided antiglare treatment, and the indexes, hour and minute hands have a luminescent surface.

The watch has a screw down case back with sapphire crystal, and comes with a polished and satiné finished steel and rose gold bracelet. The 'RW' logo is found on the folding clasp and fluted crown.
