Raymond Weil has teamed up with a series of musical talents on a collection of new special edition timepieces.
The Swiss luxury watchmaker has teamed up with a series of musical talents on a collection of new special edition timepieces, new versions of the brand’s popular ‘Freelancer’ and ‘Maestro’ models.
The CEO of RAYMOND WEIL, a pianist and cellist in his own right, Elie Bernheim has worked with three exciting talents from across the musical spectrum on three watches with distinct styles.
Based on the brand’s Freelancer range, the ‘Freelancer Cello Music Special Edition Watch‘ is a 45mm model equipped with a mechanical movement with chronograph, day and date complications and a 46-hour power reserve, which was created with Croatian Cello duo 2Cellos.
The exclusive design touches include the four cello strings wrapped around the dial, and the red bow-shaped chronograph hand.
Second up, and created with award-winning classical guitarist Miloš Karadaglic, the ‘Maestro Guitar Music Special Edition Watch‘ is a 39.5mm stainless steel case that houses a bespoke RW4200 mechanical automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve.
There’s a guitar-style cut-through that shows off the inner workings as well as a rose gold plated plectrum at 6 o’clock.
The final part of the triumvirate, the ‘Freelancer Electro Music Special Edition Watch‘ was created with UK musical artist, Labrinth.
With a 42mm stainless steel case, a RW4200 automatic mechanism with a 38-hour power reserve, the watch features a crystal case-back decorated with Labrinth’s signature and the face is decorated with a music equalizer.
Two of each of the new Raymond Weil watches will be sold at auctions during 2014 to raise money for the artists’ chosen charities.
In addition Raymond have organized an Instagram challenge open now through October 31. You can enter by capturing a musical moment and submitting it with #RWInstaMusic for the chance to win one of the three Music Special Edition timepieces.
