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.


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.
