For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

The Raymond Weil Millesime is a vintage-inspired timepiece for modern-day living

For this inaugural Millesime collection, Raymond Weil pays homage to the rich heritage and traditions of horology while celebrating the simplicity of refined design.

The complex and carefully orchestrated watchmaking process behind the Millesime collection highlights the brand’s expertise, skill, and precision. From the delicate assembly of the mechanical self-winding movement to the intricate finishing touches, every component is crafted with the utmost care. The result is a symphony of complex details that captivates watch enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike.

The dial, located beneath a vintage-inspired sapphire crystal glass-box, has been refined to the highest degree. The hours and minutes are eloquently conveyed with silver-toned hands, lined with Super-LumiNova®. The sector dial presents the hours, minutes and seconds periods on discrete tracks, augmenting readability.

A closer inspection of the dial reveals contrasting finishes, the hour track is smooth, the minute track is snailed and the central area of the dial is adorned with a delicate vertical brush. The millesime features a small seconds display at 6 o’clock, delineated with a neat recessed circlet, introducing a seemly play with depths, which is enriched with a tasteful selection of details.

The bezel is decorated with a vertical satin-brush that contrasts wonderfully with the highly polished bevel nearby. This juxtaposition of two finishes reinforces the overall level of finishing.

A sapphire caseback affords sight of the self-winding movement within and the “W-shaped” oscillating weight, Raymond Weil’s horological signature. The genuine calf leather strap is enhanced with a unique W-stitched detail.
