Raymond Weil collaborates with music artist Labrinth for charity watch auction

Raymond Weil has collaborated with English singer-songwriter and producer Labrinth to design and create a bespoke Freelancer watch for its Music Special Edition.

To make this timepiece exclusive to Labrinth, it has an exhibition case back with the artist’s signature. The dial features the producer's own three-dimensional labyrinth pattern and a music equalizer motif.

In a box signed by Labrinth, this watch is being sold to support KORI - a charity close to Labrinth’s heart. Launched in 2002, KORI focuses on helping the development of young people, from 5 to 25 years old, through the four core programmes they have established. The charity operates within the Borough of Haringey, in London, where Labrinth grew up.

The Artist

Labrinth began his career in 2009 and rose to fame when he appeared on Tinie Tempah’s No 1 debut hit “Pass Out”. He has worked with a number of high profile artists such as Ed Sheeran, Emile Sandé, Professor Green and The Weeknd in various roles from co-writing and producing to featuring and showcasing his musical abilities.

The Watch

Created by Swiss watch brand Raymond Weil, the watch is a gentleman's Freelancer Electro Music Special Edition Labrinth wrist watch. It has a stainless steel 42mm case and a gold-plated bezel, with the manufacturer's signed automatic-calibre RW 4200 under the hood. A silvered dial with three-dimensional labyrinth pattern, baton hour markers with interspaced equalizer motifs gives the watch its musical stylings, while a fitted signed brown leather strap with stainless steel deployant clasp appeals no moment what the occasion.

The watch will be auctioned by Fellow's Auctioneers on 25 April, with a guide price of £400-600. For more information, fellows.co.uk
