Raymond Weil Limited Edition Freelancer Chronograph Bi-Compax

This year, Raymond Weil has commissioned a customised motorbike from the specialist firm, Meister Engineering. The company, comprising of artisans and engineers, reimagines standard motorbikes, imbuing them with its own distinctive blend of creativity, style and mechanical virtue.

On Raymond Weil’s customised motorbike, the brand name adorns the fuel tank and is depicted in rose gold foil. This provided the inspiration for the texture of the 43.5mm bronze case and the two counters gracing the dial. The symmetrical bi-compax layout features a 30-minute chronograph counter and a small seconds display.

In addition, the tachymeter and pulsometer scales engraved on the motorcycle tank cap are replicated on the watch’s satin-finished ceramic bezel insert and flange, respectively. The tachymeter scale, presented on the bezel, provides the means to determine the speed of a motorbike, or vehicle of your choice, over a known distance. Residing on a bronze-toned flange, a pulsometer scale allows the wearer to determine the heart rate of an individual.

The Raymond Weil freelancer Bronze Chronograph 7780 is available in two variants, one with orange accents, limited to just 300 pieces, and the other with blue accents.

Available from Raymond-weil.co.uk, £2,995-£3,495.
