Raymond Weil Unveils 11 New 'Millesime' Models at Watches & Wonders

  • 01-April-2024

The new collection offers three new dimensions of style, in line with the burgeoning "neo-vintage" trend.

These new designs include the GPHG 2023 award-winning model, which now comes in two new color hues and features a small seconds counter at six o'clock; the new feminine line, which has a 35mm case, a moon phase with central seconds, and sixteen lab-grown diamonds; and a Tri-Compax chronograph that has the retro charm of well-known Panda "sport-chic" models.

As the name might imply, "millesime" signifies the start of a new era for Raymond Weil, according to Elie Bernheim, CEO of Raymond Weil. It is about conversing with a new audience that is looking for classic style.

"These enthusiasts are searching for a well-made, premium watch that has a timeless yet modern design. They also want a well-finished timepiece that is within their budget. This is the unique chance that may enthusiastically welcome.

Among the latest additions are:

Both British Racing Green and Denim Blue

Two new colors, denim blue and British racing green, are introduced as an update to the original model that took home the prestigious Challenge Prize from the watch industry at the most recent Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.

These two new references are packaged in the same stainless steel 39.5mm case. Super-LumiNova is applied to its minute and hour hands, which are silvered. The sector dial, which shows the hours, minutes, and seconds on discrete markers, functions similarly.

An Updated Millesime Lunar Phase Model

With a millesime twist, Raymond Weil presents the moon phase. This particular model offers a reading of the phases of the moon along with a graphic dial and a horological detail.

The automatic movement of this new millesime moon phase, the RW4280, has a 38-hour power hold.

Commencing in October 2024, the watch will be progressively accessible via the brand's global retail outlets and its platform.

A Poignant Statement for Today's Woman

Constructed around the two flagship references for women, five new models feature 35mm diameters. A central second hand is featured on the first, while a moon phase is present on the second. Thin stainless steel cases hold both models.

Sixteen lab-grown diamonds totaling 0.24 carats are set into the lugs of the denim blue dial millesime watches to add a subtle shimmer.

An Example of a Millesime 7765 Tri-Compax Chronograph

Raymond Weil's Tri-Compax chronograph, model number 7765, is showcased in a 39.5mm stainless steel case, paying homage to the renowned Panda dials.

Light blue Arabic numerals contrast with three silvered subdials on the midnight blue version of the dial, which evokes sophisticated sportswear.

Incorporating a blue calfskin leather strap and a whitetachymeter scale, the midnight-blue dial lends a dynamic touch.

From CHF 1,575 (£1,377) to CHF 3,500 (£3,060), there are several price points available.
