Raymond Weil ‘Freelancer’ Skeleton Automatic

Is it just us or is there something satisfying about a skeleton case on a timepiece? Seeing all the cogs and wheels turning away on your wrist, you feel part of the process of time itself. The RW freelancer automatic skeleton features a sleek stainless steel 42mm diameter case with black PVD coating. The wide aperture on the black galvanic dial offers a view on the heart of the automatic winding mechanism, which features a 38-hour power reserve. Originally launched in 2007, the freelancer collection features a wide array of urbane mechanical watches. This version of the freelancer piece mixes sporty and modest to create a harmonious and unique design perfect for active men who want to move seamlessly from home office Zoom meeting to getting outdoors on a hike or run. The automatic mechanism with which this collection is equipped gives life to its array of chronograph, diver, and open aperture watches that can accurately measure intervals of time. Constantly reinterpreting itself and free from all constraints, the freelancer conserves those elements which constitute its strengths. £2,495, Available Raymond-weil.co.uk

Congleton EV-Classic Range Rover

Taylor Congleton is well-versed in rebuilding Range Rover Classics and Land Rover Defenders. Now he’s applying his skills to a new area: all-electric conversion. Dubbed the EV-Classic, the build consists of a full restoration paired with the replacement of the traditional powertrain with a 400v, 300hp motor and a full Tesla battery pack. This combo delivers comparable range to the original V8 while offering a 0-60 time that’s cut roughly in half and a top speed of 95 mph. The A/C, heat, and all ancillary systems function the same as they did from the factory, and customers can customize a wide range of options, including exterior colors and details, interior trim, and sound systems. For those that prefer their vintage 4X4s to have a German slant, the company also has an EV-Wagen in development. £275,000+, Congletonservice.com
