Created as a tribute to the late Raymond Weil, who had a genuine passion for aviation and would frequently take flights through Swiss mountain ranges in a Piper aircraft of his own. Now the Swiss Omega replica watchmaker partners with legendary aviation manufacturer Piper Aircraft Inc. and presents its first-ever pilot watch: the freelancer Piper.
Made of titanium and stainless steel, this 45mm freelancer features a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement with date and GMT functions, making it easy for all experienced pilots to read and quickly assimilate.
The shiny blue minute and hour hands resemble the aircraft’s rotor blades while the GMT hand, with its red pointer, references a compass. The small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock is inspired by the attitude indicator and the openwork black leather strap completes the aviator look of the timepiece. The Piper replica watches uk is powered by the Swiss automatic Raymond Weil caliber RW5020 (base ETA 7754) with 25 jewels, 28,800 vph with a power reserve of 46 hours. It also features a GMT complication.
“We are honored to collaborate with another esteemed manufacturer. Raymond Weil was founded on principles similar to our own: passion for the trade, quality of the merchandise, and vision for the future. Like RAYMOND WEIL, Piper is committed to precision and performance in the delivery of a distinctive product.” Simon Caldecott, President and CEO of Piper Aircraft
