One of the most unique watch lines we carry is Raymond Weil, a relatively new brand that has made huge waves in the world of watchmaking. It was founded in 1976 by Mr. Raymond Weil, who dreamed of bringing the art of music into the art of Swiss watchmaking. By 1983, his dream had become reality.
The Amadeus collection, named after the famous Mozart, was the first in a tradition of music-inspired watch lines, which continues to this day with collections like Tango, Parsifal, and Maestro.
From the Maestro collection, we have a limited edition Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s watch, which features a black and gold dial, a vegan leather strap and comes in a Beatles keepsake box. The case back bears the Beatles logo and offers a view into the self-winding mechanical movement.
Bob Marley is another legendary artist who was honored with a limited edition watch design by Raymond Weil. From the Tango collection, this all-stainless-steel watch features the iconic black lion on its dial plus yellow, red and green accents. The case back features an engraving of Marley’s signature and the line “TIME WILL TELL” from the Kaya album.
But it isn’t just the creativity of Raymond Weil we love so much—it’s also the dedication to innovation. For example, the ladies’ Shine collection features an easy-to-use interchangeable bracelet system that’s exclusive to the brand, making it simpler than ever to go from a sleek, all stainless steel bracelet to a fashionable leather band—it’s like getting two watches for the price of one!
Not to mention, Raymond Weil is an independent family-owned business, which is always a plus for us! For three generations, Raymond Weil has earned its place among the best of the luxury watch brands and has never forgotten its original source of inspiration: an enduring love of music.
Check out our Raymond Weil collection right here on our website or see it all in person at one of our stores! We’d love to show you these special watches, featuring quartz and mechanical movements, sometime soon!
