RAYMOND WEIL belongs to the limited circle of Swiss watchmakers still in family hands. It all started in 1976, in the middle of a watch industry crisis, when Mr Raymond Weil decided to found his own company and turn his vision of what Swiss watchmaking should be into actual timepieces that would bring a new dimension to the industry. Now under the leadership of the founder’s grandson, Elie Bernheim, after 18 years of successful management by his father Olivier Bernheim, the Geneva-based Company continues to develop and consolidate its status among the leading names of the Swiss watch industry.
Creativity, watchmaking know-how, accessibility and above all, independence: through the years, the RAYMOND WEIL dynasty has been creating and boldly reinventing itself, while still remaining true to the Brand’s fundamentals and preserving the DNA of its original success.
With over 40 years of experience, RAYMOND WEIL benefits from Switzerland’s centuries of carefully handed-down watchmaking skills and know-how. The Brand harnesses the industry’s topmost expertise in components and materials supply and partners with the best movement providers while the entire life cycle of a RAYMOND WEIL watch is supervised by its in-house R&D Department. Precision, quality, reliability, nobility and technical nature of the materials are many standards that RAYMOND WEIL combines to create luxury, elegant and refined watches for men and women that meet the prerequisites of the much sought-after “Swiss made” label.
This treasured expertise confers the Brand its watchmaking legitimacy while music drives RAYMOND WEIL’s creativity and is at the heart of all its partnerships worldwide. From its early beginnings, RAYMOND WEIL has been imbued with a deep affinity for music and the arts, the other passions of the Weil-Bernheim family. The Swiss watchmaker composes its timepieces the way musicians compose their chef d’oeuvres and demonstrates its musical and artistic influences through its various collections. The Brand has a proven history of supporting, developing and nurturing musical talent and has the continuous pleasure to tie more and more partnerships with renowned artists, iconic music brands, emblematic concert halls, awards ceremonies and music-related charities.
