A new Raymond Weil Freelancer chronograph

Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph Ref. 7740-SC3-65521

Music plays a big part in the brand image of the Swiss independent watchmaker Raymond Weil, and I’m sure that the scoop of a new version of the Freelancer chronograph is music to many ears, or maybe not. The new Freelancer comes with a silver panda dial with a┬ádark blue tachymeter bezel and subdials joins the other two Freelancer models. If you were undecided which Freelancer to pick: the Ref. 7740-SC1-20021 (black dial and yellow hands) or the Ref. 7740-SC1-65221 (silver dial and red hands), the new Ref. 7740-SC3-65521 will make the choice even more difficult, as it looks amazing with its guilloche decorated silver dial and dark blue PVD coated tachymeter bezel and subdials.

Price wise, it should retail around the same price as the other two, in the $3,000 CAD range.
