QP WATCH SALON at the SAATCHI GALLERY LONDON 13-14 NOVEMBER 2015

The Freelancer collection launched in 2007, and this special edition is actually a collaboration with Piper aircraft – not that you would know, as there’s a lack of any visible branding on the dial. The dial has central hours and minutes, with monochrome hands tipped with stripes, and a GMT hand inspired by a red compass. A tachometric bezel runs around the outside, whilst the inner circle displays GMT time. There’s a small seconds sub-dial resembling an altitude indicator at 9 o’clock, a date window at 4 o’clock, and 30-minute and 12-hour counters at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively. raymond weil 3 The royal blue hands on the chronograph counters are shaped like the Piper’s rotor blades, and the chronograph is started, stopped and restarted by the 2 o’clock pusher, whilst the 4 o’clock pusher resets. Inside is the RW5020 chronograph movement on an ETA 7754 base caliber. Water-resistant to 100m, the Piper has a 46-hour power reserve and comes on an openwork black leather strap. The run is limited to 1,500 pieces and, sweetly, each watch comes with its own Raymond Weil-stamped model Piper.

Best known for its music-inspired watches, Raymond Weil has now released its debut pilot’s watch. Whilst the company’s eponymous founder was well-known for his love of music, reflected in watches inspired by everything from Gibson guitars to Frank Sinatra, Raymond Weil’s passion for flying is somewhat less acknowledged. Now Raymond Weil has launched its first pilot watch, the 45mm Freelancer Piper made of titanium and stainless steel and priced at £2,895. In tribute to Mr Weil, the Freelancer Piper takes design cues from the dashboard of the Piper plane Weil flew around the Matterhorn and the mountains of Switzerland. With thanks and courtesy, Raymond Weil. With thanks and courtesy QP Watch Salon. Saatchi Gallery 13-14 November 2015.
