Raymond Weil to introduce 11 new references to ‘Millesime’ at Watches & Wonders

Aligning with the emerging ‘neo-vintage’ trend, the new collection offers three new dimensions of style.

Family-owned Geneva-based brand Raymond Weil will make its debut at Watches & Wonders with 11 new additions to the Millesime collection.

Aligning with the emerging ‘neo-vintage’ trend, the new collection offers three new dimensions of style.

These new styles include the GPHG 2023 award-winning model with a small seconds counter at 6 o’clock, now enhanced with two new colour hues; the new feminine line with a moon phase with central seconds, 35mm case, and 16 lab-grown diamonds; and a Tri-Compax chronograph with the vintage allure of celebrated Panda ‘sport-chic’ models.

Elie Bernheim, CEO of Raymond Weil, said: “As the name might suggest, ‘millesime’ marks the beginning of a new era for Raymond Weil. It is about engaging in a dialogue with a new clientele in search of timeless elegance.

“These are enthusiasts who are looking not only for a high-quality, well-crafted watch with a classic yet contemporary design, but also a timepiece with refined finishes – at an accessible price point. This is the exceptional opportunity that we embrace wholeheartedly.”

The new additions include:

Denim blue and British racing green

Two new colours are debuted: denim blue and British racing green, a follow-up to the inaugural model that won the watch industry’s coveted Challenge Prize at the last Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

These two new references come in the same 39.5mm case in stainless steel. Its silvered hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova. The same goes for the sector dial, which visually presents the hours, minutes and seconds on discreet markers.

A new millesime moon phase model

Raymond Weil gives the moon phase a millesime twist. This model combines a graphic dial with the horological complication and offers a reading of the moon phases.

This new millesime moon phase is equipped with the RW4280 automatic movement, providing a 38-hour power reserve.

The watch will be gradually available from October 2024 across the brand’s retail locations around the world and online.

An inspired line for the woman of today

With diameters of 35mm, five new models are built around the two flagship references for women. The first is equipped with a central second hand, while the second features a moon phase. Both models are presented in a thin stainless steel cases.

The lugs of the denim blue dial millesime timepieces are set with 16 lab-grown diamonds (0.24ct), providing a discreet sparkle.

The millesime 7765 Tri-Compax Chronograph

In an homage to the famous Panda dials, Raymond Weil’s 7765 Tri-Compax chronograph is presented in a 39.5mm diameter stainless steel case.

The dial evokes elegant sportswear with three silvered subdials on the midnight blue version, accented by light blue Arabic numerals.

The whitetachymeter scale on the midnight-blue dial injects a dynamic element, as well as paired with a blue calfskin leather strap.

The price points range from CHF 1,575 (£1,377) to CHF 3,500 (£3,060).
