Going over the selections from our previous ranking, we found several models that are no longer part of the company's active lineup, and we sought to replace them with more current offerings. In that process, we found that the company has continued to expand away from its roots designing watches for music lovers to recognize, while still keeping a few special editions around for fans of their early work. One of the best of those musical references comes in the form of the Tango Bob Marley, which replaces our previously included GMT timepiece with a far more exciting color scheme that doesn't feel derivative of the high-end Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi. We included one of their finest current musical offerings in our special honors section, as well.
But RW offers some nice automatic movements — mostly minor modifications of ETA movements from the middle of that manufacturer's shelf. Despite using outsourced movements, however, the company is very interested in putting them on display, with the Freelancer Black 2870 and Maestro 2227 both partially skeletonizing their dials to reveal the balance spring, and the Maestro Skeleton going full open-work from the hour track inward. That's particularly exciting for anyone who wants to geek out over their automatic watch or to announce to the world that they prefer it over quartz.
Nabucco Cuore Caldo Special Edition Rendered in a combination of 18-Karat rode gold, titanium, and stainless steel, this model is among the most expensive in the company's lineup. Its dial features an intricately designed chronograph with a power reserve indicator at six o'clock, and its sapphire glass is treated with anti-reflective material on both sides so you can enjoy it in a variety of lighting conditions. At 46mm, however, it might be too big for people with small wrists. raymond-weil.us
Maestro Sgt. Pepper This timepiece is an understated homage to one of the most raucous albums in the discography of one of the greatest bands of all time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. It features a blacked out version of the design seen on the bass drum adorning the album's cover, as well as the band's name printed on the tinted caseback glass. It even comes with a vinyl copy of the original record, and is priced below many of the company's other automatic models. raymond-weil.us
