A timepiece to reflect a life’s work was the quiet homage the company wished to pay to its founder. A subtle reference to Raymond Weil’s favourite complication, an automatic winding mechanical heart, equipped with a 42-hour power reserve, sits inside this COSC-certified chronometer.
Each timepiece is engraved with a unique number on its movement and comes with a certificate issued by the COSC. The 45mm 18K rose gold case shelters a dial featuring Raymond Weil’s hand-written signature. The chronograph pushbuttons to start, stop, restart and reset the chronometer sit on either side of the crown.
The distinctive sign of high-quality watch movements, Geneva striping embellishes the skeleton oscillating weight. With this 100-piece numbered limited edition tribute timepiece, Raymond Weil highlights its attachment not only to watchmaking values, but above all to the family values with which its high-quality creations are imbued, flying the flag for Swiss watchmaking expertise.
