For this inaugural millesime collection, RAYMOND WEIL pays homage to the rich heritage and traditions of horology while celebrating the simplicity of refined design. Millesime timepiece offer a period charm combined with present-day practicality.
The dial, located beneath a vintage-inspired sapphire crystal glass-box, has been refined to the highest degree. The hours and minutes are eloquently conveyed with silver-toned hands, lined with Super-LumiNova®. The sector dial presents the hours, minutes and seconds periods on discrete tracks, augmenting readability.
A closer inspection of the dial reveals contrasting finishes, the hour track is smooth, the minute track is snailed and the central area of the dial is adorned with a delicate vertical brush. The millesime features a small seconds display at 6 o’clock, delineated with a neat recessed circlet, introducing a seemly play with depths, which is enriched with a tasteful selection of details.
The bezel is decorated with a vertical satin-brush that contrasts wonderfully with the highly polished bevel nearby. This juxtaposition of two finishes reinforces the overall level of finishing.
A sapphire caseback affords sight of the self-winding movement within and the “W-shaped” oscillating weight, RAYMOND WEIL’s horological signature. The genuine calf leather strap is enhanced with a unique W-stitched detail.
As the name suggests, the collection is a grand vintage interpretation of the RAYMOND WEIL brand.
