Raymond Weil unveils limited edition AC/DC inspired watch

The black dial on the watch features a textured pattern recalling the AC/DC high voltage bolt graphics

Luxury Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil has unveiled a new collaboration in its Music Icons series, paying tribute Rock and Roll Hall of famers AC/DC.

The limited edition watch incorporates subtle design cues inspired by the legendary Rock
Band. Measuring 42 mm in diameter, the freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition is lined with luminescent treatment and slender hour and minute hands.

To reinforce the rock and roll attitude of the timepiece, the hours are marked with studded indexes. The black dial features a textured pattern recalling the AC/DC high voltage bolt graphics. It sits adjacent to the iconic AC/DC typography placed at 12 o’clock. The black leather strap is also adorned with the AC/DC logo.

The 3,000 piece and numbered freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition is endowed with the in-house, self-winding movement, the Calibre RW1212. It offers a stage opening on the lower part of the dial 2allowing onlookers to view the rocking Alternating Current/Direct Current balance”.

Each of the freelancer AC/DC Limited Edition will be presented with a specially
designed watch case and a corresponding certificate of authenticity.

Elie Bernheim, CEO Raymond Weil, said: “There is very little doubt that AC/DC is and continues to be one of the most iconic rock bands of all time and it has been a pleasure to collaborate with them. As AC/DC perfectly quoted let there be light, sound, drums and guitar – let there be rock”.
