Erol Ozan once said, “dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment.”
To add a new life to the words of Ozan, Raymond Weil crafts timepieces that are timeless, gorgeous, fashionable and lasts for a lifetime.
The Raymond Weil Tango collection draws most of its inspiration from a dance form called Tango. The idea behind naming this collection after a dance form is that the wearer gets to witness a Tango between the qualities of Raymond Weil, artistry and technique.
The Raymond Weil Tango collection is defined by the six screws on the bezel. In some timepieces, these screws are complemented by the addition of a guilloche pattern on the dial.
Though these six screws are the definition of the collection, they are absent on the Chronograph iteration where the screws are replaced by a tachymeter. The Chronographs are fitted with three sub-dials at 9, 6, and 3 o’clock and an unusually placed date window between 4 and 5 o’clock.
For dual timers, there is a rotating bezel instead of the signature bezel. In these timepieces, the second time zone is marked by a long central hand and a date window at the 3 o’clock marker.
As Tango is a dance form perfected by both men and women, the collection also fits the bill perfectly. The collection features timepieces made for women equipped with a mother-of-pearl dial and diamond-studded markers. Heaving towards simplicity but not swaying away from elegance, the collection also features lacquered dial variants with Roman numerals.
Raymond Weil has associated itself with music icons quite a lot of times. Ranging from David Bowie to Jimi Hendrix, the brand has a list of limited edition timepieces dedicated to legendary musicians. One such timepiece is the Tango Bob Marley Limited Edition. A GMT, the timepiece feature a lion. Lion is associated with the Rastafarian roots of Bob Marley and was made in collaboration with ‘The House of Marley’.
