This year, Raymond Weil has released the Limited Edition Freelancer Chronograph Bi-Compax which was inspired by the open road and a customised motorbike crafted by the artisans of 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.
