RAYMOND WEIL chose its flagship freelancer collection to capture Jimi Hendrix’s free-spirited attitude and classic trademarks.
His famous 1968 white Fender Stratocaster inspired many of the dial’s details, including the nine dotted index markers that mimic the frets on his guitar neck and circular border representing the six guitar strings.
