Well, the enthusiastic comments on the video, the site post and the socials have confirmed it – this new Raymond Weil Freelancer in a pitch perfect olive green, with that eye-catching exposed balance well and truly have your attention. Which is why we thought we’d upgrade the Hands-On review and bring it to you in the metal, as well. Questions about the dial, its texture, and case and size etc will all be answered herewith.
To recap, and in short, Raymond Weil has spent the best part of a decade languishing a good distance away from the zeitgeist that has been the rise of practically a whole new vanguard of competitors. But the brilliant thing about competition is that it has the ability to breed success.
And that’s what the new Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre RW1212 in Green is … a straight up success. Chief among its charms is simply the way it looks. It’s easily the most attractive RW in years, but it’s not the only reason why this watch is worth a look. It’s also got some good tech-specs, a nice, contemporary feel and … it’s green, which is the new “it” colour in watch world. Well done to Raymond Weil, and if you like the look of it, we’re selling this very watch at the T+T shop, and you can check out the listing right here.
