Details & Specifications


Limited Edition: One of 400 pieces Worldwide

The freelancer Pilot Flyback Chronograph Limited Edition “One of 400” celebrates the Brand’s heritage by paying tribute to Mr. Raymond Weil’s passion for aviation. This timepiece also features a new and intricate complication for the Brand, the flyback chronograph. Used by many pilots, the flyback function allows the precise calculation of distances during air navigation.

To enhance its elegant and adventurous look, the 42mm stainless steel case is fully brushed and has a grey PVD coating. The hands and numerals are lined with Super-LumiNova®, aiding readability in restricted light. Functional and playful, its colors and design are an ode to aviation in the 20th century, a time when Mr. Raymond Weil himself enjoyed flying. With the tarmac-like outer ring and propeller-like concentric circles on the counters, the finishings throughout the dial further evoke the world of aviation.

The automatic movement inside the timepiece is the RW5530, a flyback chronograph movement that allows a simultaneous reset and restart of the chronograph with a single pusher and has a 56h power reserve. The yellow hands, at the central position and in the right counter, will display the elapsed time in flight. The freelancer Pilot Flyback Chronograph also features an onion-shaped crown, a design standard on pilot watches. The W-shaped oscillating weight and blued column wheel are visible through the “propeller” engraved sapphire case back.

The brown genuine calf leather strap has four rivets, reminiscent of those found on airplanes, and a double push-security folding clasp.

Launched in 2007, the freelancer collection was created in honor of the free-spirited man who wishes to remain in control of his own destiny, and features an eclectic mix of urbane mechanical watches. The freelancer mixes classic and modest to create a harmonious and unique design. Constantly reinterpreting itself and free from all constraints, the freelancer conserves those elements which constitute its strengths.
