CREATIVE INSPIRATION

Music and the arts are to Raymond Weil what thought is to humankind – an inexhaustible source of creative inspiration and creation. For three generations, the Weil family has been influenced by these higher realms to shape the destiny of a Swiss watchmaking Maison. From Frank Sinatra to the Beatles, Nicola Benedetti and Gibson – Raymond Weil has been putting its name in lights alongside some of the greatest musicians of all time for nearly half a century.

Raymond Weil pays its respects to a legend with a tribute to the fabled Les Paul Gibson guitar. Elegant, with a touch of rebellion, the freelancer is inspired by the Gibson Les Paul model and embodies its free spirit, rock attitude and unparalleled power of music.

Raymond Weil celebrates the most legendary of all electric guitar manufacturers – Gibson – and the pioneer of modern music – Lester William Polsfuss, known as Les Paul – by honoring the guitar that has inspired and served the best artists of all time. From Jimmy Page to Keith Richards and Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton, brilliant musicians have turned to this instrument to make Rock ‘n’ Roll history.

The body of the Gibson inspired watch has a 43.5 mm case and is made of steel and its tachymeter bezel is enhanced with black PVD inspired by the lacquer on the Black Beauty – a guitar renowned for its electrifying performance that continues to astound musicians all over the world. The board features circular guilloche motif featuring six chords studded by fret-shaped hour markers.

At 12 o’clock, the names of the famous guitar manufacturer and the legendary Les Paul signature appear, while the split-diamond inlay – a distinctive feature of the Les Paul Custom shines in golden tones next to the date window. Its ebony perforated calf leather strap brings to mind the sound holes that are part of the body of a guitar. Asserting its character and confirming its prestigious soul, the fittings – tri-compax chronograph counters, date and strap topstitching – of the freelancer inspired by the Gibson Les Paul are set with golden highlights. The tempo of the watch is set by an RW5010 mechanical self-winding movement ensuring an approximately 46-hour power reserve.

Raymond Weil is introducing this collector’s model issued in a 300-piece limited numbered edition, encased in an exclusive presentation box inspired by the famous Gibson guitar cases. With this watch the Swiss Brand strengthens its collaboration with Gibson Brands that began in 2015.
