Raymond Weil’s Ladies Tradition Date Steel on Steel Swiss Watch 5966-ST-00300

By: Debra Stoddard

 

Looking for a great, classy everyday watch?  Raymond Weil will be wrapped around your wrist with their Tradition Date timepiece.  The design is simple and elegant, with a steel bracelet very comfortable on your wrist, and with Swiss quartz movement.  It isn’t flashy, but luxury doesn’t necessarily mean lots of bling.  The watch was created for women wanting a quality timepiece to wear to the office or the playground.  The bracelet boasts an understated elegance that also looks great with evening wear.

One of the best things about this style is the bracelet doesn’t pinch your skin like so many others.  Comfort was in mind when crafting this timepiece.  The classic Roman numerals contrast on the crisp white dial making it easy to read.  The 28 mm diameter case fits perfectly on most women’s wrists.  While the watch is water resistant up to 50 meters, it is not advisable to wear it swimming.  If the crown is not screwed down properly or the seals in the watch are old, the watch is at risk for water damage.  Also keep in mind when changing the battery, you must send it back to your warranty-authorized repair place in order to keep your warranty valid.
