I love timepieces and have quite a little collection. For me, a watch is a great way to add interest to an outfit and make a statement. RAYMOND WEIL, a Swiss family owned company, was founded in Geneva in 1976. Precision inspirations the watchmakers at RAYMOND WEIL, and they are always looking to music and the arts for inspiration for their collections. This season, the company has 3 key styles: The Maestro, the Freelancer, and the Nabucco.
1. Maestro: The Maestro collection symbolizes the attachment of the founding family and owner of RAYMOND WEIL to its roots, but also to its permanent source of inspiration, music. This year, the collection is enhanced with new prestige. The Maestro collection comes in an array of colors, dials, and choices as it embodies the mastery of the Swiss watchmaker. Shown: mechanical chronograph with automatic winding power reserve with rose gold coating. $2,895.
2. Freelancer: WIth the Freelancer, RAYMOND WEIL is giving new life to its chronograph, now a best seller in the Freelancer collection which has been successful since its launch. With its steel case, black galvanic dial, and hints of red, the new Freelancer is what RAYMOND WEIL calls "Simply Class." Freelancer is a name that recalls that RAYMOND WEIL is one of the last independent watchmakers. This model features a mechanical chronograph with automatic winding. Available in leather or stainless steel bracelet. $2,995.
3. Nabucco: This is my personal favorite for the season. To me, this watch has a great, subtle edginess to it. It is a great mix of power, design, and elegance. The Nabucco collection is inspired by the famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi. The entire Nabucco collection is racy and elegant, appealing to connoisseurs around the world. Titanium and stainless steel case featuring a mechanical chronograph with automatic winding. $5,450.
