Raymond Weil unveils an India exclusive Freelancer RW1212 Ganges Limited Edition

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Ethos watch boutique, Raymond Weil has created a blue-shade timepiece with the outline map of India
The Freelancer RW1212 was first launched by Raymond Weil in 2017, the black and silvery timepiece was equipped with the brand’s first in-house calibre RW1212, partially visible through the face of the watch. The dial featured a minute track on the chapter ring, hour markers at the periphery, and clous de Paris decoration on the central section. Previously appeared in different colour variations like sublime green and a standard blue, is now introduced in the shade of blue.

Limited to only 99 pieces, the new 42mm Freelancer RW1212 Ganges Limited Edition 
(Ref. 2780-ST-IND01) is crafted in steel and is topped with a sapphire crystal. Picking up the exact design, the dial appears similar to the previous models except for the colour, which is blue - evocative of the glaciers and the hues of Gangotri. The balance wheel is revealed at 6 o’clock. 

On the back the same automatic calibre RW1212 can be seen, along with the perlage and côtes de Genève finish on the oscillating weight; an outline of the map of India in pale blue - highlighting the flow of the River Ganges—in a brighter blue; and other engraved information which include - 20th anniversary, 100m water resistant, limited edition no., reference no., and material. The timepiece has a power reserve of about 38 hours. Finishing the watch is a silver coloured steel bracelet with steel clasp. 

The watch is priced at ₹2,55,000 exclusively at Ethos.
