Raymond Weil

At the time of the Brand’s creation in 1976, Raymond Weil wanted to bring luxury Swiss watchmaking within the reach of a wider public. This visionary approach, always dear to the three generations, has enabled the Brand to develop internationally, within the space of only a few decades.

About

The history of RAYMOND WEIL is first and foremost one of a family: that of its founder of the same name, who dared to claim his independence and establish his own vision of Swiss watchmaking: high quality, innovative, elegant and accessible. Later on, his son-in-law, Olivier Bernheim, followed by his two grandsons, Elie and Pierre Bernheim, joined him at the head of the company, combining their experience of more than 100 years together with their talents. With each of them contributing his own influence, the Swiss Brand was able to evolve in its own good time, while perpetuating an exceptional heritage and preserving its independence and family spirit.

If the know-how and the passion for watchmaking have been handed down from generation to generation within the RAYMOND WEIL family, so has the love of music! It is in this artistic universe composed of passionate stories and exceptional melodies that each member of the clan likes to plumb the depths of his inspiration in the creation of watch products. This is borne out by the names of the Brand’s collections taken from famous operas such as nabucco and parsifal, or with musical connotations, such as maestro or jasmine.

Emotions, precision, performance: these are the values common to music and watchmaking that RAYMOND WEIL wishes to share with its clients.

Philosophy

At the time of the Brand’s creation in 1976, Raymond Weil wanted to bring luxury Swiss watchmaking within the reach of a wider public. This visionary approach, always dear to the three generations, has enabled the Brand to develop internationally, within the space of only a few decades.

 

Despite this rapid expansion to a global level, the Geneva watchmaking company succeeded in retaining its human character and its independence, and in this way maintains a relationship of mutual trust and deep respect with its longstanding business partners. The Brand also remains very close to its clients and is always paying great attention to their needs and expectations. Responding to these, in recent years, RAYMOND WEIL has reinforced its lower-priced collections and developed new, more sophisticated, mechanical models, which appeal to the ever-broadening audience of watchmaking enthusiasts.

 

Collections

Freelancer

The name freelancer recalls that the Swiss Brand is one of the last independent Swiss watchmakers. It is also a reference to the creative freedom of the artist-watchmaker at his work bench. Thus the collection has never ceased evolving since its creation in 2007, while at the same time retaining its urbane, relaxed and elegant personality.

Jasmine

An ensemble of delicate curves, the jasmine collection created in 2011 embodies elegance pure femininity. It takes its name from the Puccini Opera, Turandot, in which the splendor of the princess is associated with jasmine. In honor of this subtle beauty, the design of the flower is traced at the heart of the dial in guilloche. A real watch-jewel.

Maestro

Launched in 2010, maestro is a very elegant collection with a classic design, entirely mechanical and including some complication in the great Swiss watchmaking tradition. Its name pays homage to the artists who succeed in masterfully synchronising the rhythms of tradition and innovation.

Nabucco

Inspired by the mythical work of Giuseppe Verdi, the nabucco collection exalts power and nobility. Dedicated to gentlemen with a strong personality, the entirely automatic collection, launched in 2007, is notable for its imposing and very masculine architecture and its high-tech materials combining strength and audacity.

Noemia

Etymologically, noemia signifies “charm” or “grace”. This name also has the association of being the first name of Raymond Weil's granddaughter. It is a collection in this image: feminine, gentle, light, graceful, surprising and elegant, as evidenced by the delicate contours of its polished steel case and the refined beauty of its dial.

 

Parsifal

As a homage to the Richard Wagner opera, the parsifal collection celebrates the values of the hero, Perceval. Launched over 20 years ago, this historic collection remains faithful to the aesthetic contours of the first models, with a gadrooned bezel, a finely worked bracelet, and the use of noble materials all in perfect harmony with today's trends.

Tango

Appealing to both women and men, the tango collection combines aesthetic purity and functionality. Resembling an Argentinian dancing couple, this line's models are the expression of harmony and precision, strength and sensuality.

Tradition

According to its variations, whether feminine or masculine, the tradition collection remains faithful to a classic and timeless spirit, which has lasted through the generations. Swiss precision at an unbeatable price.
