The New Millesime Collection
Raymond Weil has said that the brand-new Millesime is a “vintage-inspired timepiece in tune with modern-day living.” The new watches offer period charm with present-day practicality. This makes them the perfect choice for someone who adores vintage style but desires the capability of modern watch movements. There is a carefully orchestrated watchmaking process behind the collection that highlights Raymond Weil’s expertise, skill and precision. The new collection represents Raymond Weil’s core values: the enduring family legacy, generations of Swiss-made artistry, and a passion for watchmaking.
This launch is made even more exciting by its award-winning status. The small seconds edition of the Millesime won the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève 2023 Challenge Watch Prize. This puts the new timepieces in very high regard. The brand has said that the honour of this prize has reinforced its deep-rooted connection to its heritage and its unwavering dedication to Swiss watchmaking excellence.
The Millesime Watches
Raymond Weil announces the Millesime collection with two designs and a multitude of colourways. Whether it is the small seconds or the classic dial that catches your eye, the timepiece will be made from the highest quality materials. The dial of each model exhibits a sector design with Superluminova hands, a smooth hour track and a snailed minute track. The centre part of each dial is detailed with a delicate vertical brush. The dial is protected by a vintage-inspired sapphire crystal glass box and framed by a vertical satin-brushed bezel. This brushed finish creates a pleasant contrast with the highly polished bevel. The juxtaposition of finishes throughout the watch speaks to the detail and precision in the manufacturing of these timepieces. The watches are powered by an automatic movement that features a W-shaped oscillating weight that can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back.
Available in a variety of colours and finishes, there is certainly a Raymond Weil Millesime watch for every collector. Click here to browse the full Millesime collection on our website.
