Reema Vazirani, Marketing Manager at Favre-Leuba explains, “Like the Raider Sea Bird, as it breaks away from the conventional norm of women’s watches with their precious stones and metals. Just like the many women who break away from the age-old professional gender norms, these women are an inspiration as they have conquered physical, mental and emotional frontiers in otherwise male-dominated professions."


Manuela, a metal sculptor agrees, “Working with metal as a material can be somewhat challenging for a woman. It takes a lot of strength, which comes easier to a man, but my determination and persistence have helped me turn my vision into reality. I am glad that I can reinforce my position as a woman in this unique field.”


Just like these women, the Raider Sea Bird exudes self-confidence and determination. The combination of excellent craftsmanship and perfect functionality go hand-in-hand, and together they are symbolic of the modern woman.
