The Viking queen wears a Raymond Weil

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

Who better to represent the Raymond Weil New Shine Collection but Katherine Winnick.  Winnick, who is better known as Lagertha in the Vikings TV series, projects both sensuality and boldness that the watch collection embodies. She, like the Raymond Weil line, evokes confidence. The new Shine collection features quartz movement, delicate curves, diamond purity and mother-of-pearl elements found in some of its timepieces. It can also come in steel or yellow-gold PVD coated steel. “For me, time is about moments.

Surprise Her with Jasmine

Posted by Sylvans at 6:20:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

Surprise her. Yes. That's something that you should do without someone telling you to. That's also something she'd like without her knowing fully why and how come. That's just something we ought to do and we know our significant others just love. But choosing something to surprise them with is kind of tricky. But what you would want is something that showcases a lady's uniqueness, personality while showing her that she is special to you at the same time. And what way can you do that? Well, here's a little tip. Leave something special on her work desk or in her mailbox; or maybe on her bedside table. What that thing could be is a Raymond Weil lady's watch. One model that can catch her eye is the Jasmine with a red leather strap that runs on a mechanical movement with automatic winding. It features 49 beautiful diamonds on the 35mm case. It's more than an emblem but a homage to women.

The Old man lives on

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

Raymond Weil is more than just a luxury watch signature. It personifies a family that has backed the brand with passion and unwavering commitment, when many Swiss watchmakers were selling out to conglomerates in the late seventies. In fact, Raymond Weil is, perhaps, the only remaining independent luxury watch brand that's not owned by any of the five biggest watch companies in the world. That means when you own a Raymond Weil, you're wearing a rare brand that its founder had worked hard to build. Sadly, Raymond Weil passed away last year, but not after leaving the family in a position to continue his legacy. Elie Bernheim, the company's CEO, is the founder's grandson. ìIt was an emotional year for the brand,î he said, recounting the old man's death just when the grandson was promoted to head the company.

Through the Tests of Time

Posted by Sylvans at 2:32:56 PM in Raymond Weil (21)

When you find yourself facing a wall, you can either climb it or find a door.  This was Raymond Weil’s attitude as he started his career as a Swiss watchmaker at a time when most watchmakers in the Swiss country were closing doors. The quartz wave was not strong enough to daunt the young and spirited watchmaker from pursuing the valued traditions of Swiss watchmaking. Raymond Weil set up shop in the paling watch district of Geneva.  At present, nearly half a decade later, Raymond Weil thrives as one of the last independent Swiss watchmakers. The company’s distinct characteristic as a family-oriented and music-inspired luxury watch brand differentiates Raymond Weil from the rest of the crowd. Raymond Weil has proven itself as a solid name that repeatedly withstood the tests of time. In Columbia,

The Weil Tradition

Posted by Sylvans at 12:53:51 PM in Raymond Weil (21)

Never say die. That was Raymond Weil's attitude at the beginning years of his eponymous Swiss watch company based in Geneva. It was the period of the quartz movement when Weil set up his own shop. Everywhere, the proud tradition of Swiss watch making, prominent for its unsurpasses quality, was being pushed down the drain by the much cheaper quartz movement. It was not a good time for Swiss watches. And yet, like a phoenix that rises from its ashes, the centuries old traditional watchmaking refused to die out in Raymond Weil, who persisted in keeping his Swiss watch shop operating. Two generations of Weil's later, the persistent and daring spirit of its owner lives on in the company's strivings for excellence and innovation despite external threats and internal challenges.

A toast to the Maestro

Posted by Sylvans at 12:50:00 PM in Raymond Weil (21)

Nowadays, the music artist tends to receive most of the fame and glory for the popular music he or she had interpreted, leaving the composer at the background without much share of the accolades from the very music the composer had created. Probably inspired by this reality, known music aficionado and world-class watchmaker Raymond Weil gives tribute to the actual source of every musical masterpiece — the composer — through the new Toccata Collection. With its exquisite harmonious finish and elegant design, the Toccata exemplifies the brand’s audaciousness and unparalleled creativity.

The Man Behind the Watch

Posted by Sylvans at 12:00:00 PM in Raymond Weil (21)

They say you can tell a lot about a person by the watch he wears. It easily gives you a hint of his status or taste. There are watches that are exclusively luxurious and watches that are targeted purely at the outdoor adventurer. But some watch brands are more complex to discern. Like a Raymond Weil. It’s elegant, we know, highlighted by the leathery straps and graceful lines exhibited in many of its collections. The Maestro collection, especially, evokes a classic luxury in its rose gold casing. But Raymond Weil can also be sporty like its Nabucco collection. In steel and titanium this timepiece line brags bold features, such as outer dial for dive metering and a 46mm diameter casing. So how do you place a man wearing a Raymond Weil? A man of taste, maybe.

The Freelancer exudes a liberal love for a lot of things. Its multiple dials reflect multi-tasking, a predisposition to exploring new horizons outside the cubicle. It has a masculine feel, while still maintaining a dash of elegance. The Maestro is classic and refined. In rose gold casing and brown or black leather strap, it bespeaks of experience and expertise, the hallmark of someone who has achieved a position of authority and influence.

Timeless timepiece

Posted by Sylvans at 8:00:10 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

It sounds absurd to call a timepiece timeless. Yet such is the appeal of the Ladies Collections by Raymond Weil that it’s easy to mistake it for a classic jewelry, a timeless piece, indeed. The fusion of silver and gold tones, steel and leather is faultless; the result is nothing short of a luxurious piece adorning a lady’s wrist. The Jasmine is teasing with rose gold undertones. The Noemia is classic and with 62 diamonds to showcase. The Maestro is novel and confident. They are but some of the latest Raymond Weil pieces that are setting the trend in luxurious ladies’ watch. Smooth and delicate as a flower petal, yet they, too, evoke the strength of steel and consistency of Swiss precision engineering.

Tested by time

Posted by Sylvans at 8:20:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

Back in the late seventies to early eighties, Swiss watchmakers faced a crisis: the advent of Asian manufactured Japan quartz movement threatened the mechanical watch industry. As people marveled  at this new technology and shifted to wearing automatic quartz, one man decided to swim against the tide. Raymond Weil has always believed in independence, that quality is never compromised by market forces, and decided to launch the Raymond Weil Swiss luxury watch right in the middle of this storm. Instead of adapting the cheaper, more popular but less quality quartz technology at that time, Raymond decided to stick to the excellent Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship he learned in the twenties as a watchmaker himself. Precision movement and quality of material were never compromised; in fact, Raymond Weil watches had unofficially became a rallying morale booster for Swiss technology against the tide of Japanese ingenuity during the crisis. Today Raymond Weil watches represent the same independent quality craftsmanship, a brand that has been tested by time, indeed.

How Swiss is Swiss?

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

What makes a Swiss luxury watch, Swiss? Some say the parts must be 50% sourced and manufactured in Switzerland. Some argue that it should be 80% Swiss made. Still others point out that the watchmaker should be based in Switzerland, historically home of the best timepiece craftsmanship in the world. The Swiss trademark is sought-after for the name it represents: precision engineering and intricate designs that the country has perfected since the late medieval times. Interestingly, although Switzerland only manufacture about 10% of the world’s watches—the rest being concentrated in China—the local industry enjoys about 80% of sales because it focuses on the high-end luxury watches. If you want to be sure you’re buying a genuine Swiss brand, just go for Raymond Weil. How Swiss it is? Nothing short of its owner/founder being a Geneva pilot who demands accuracy in timing.

Care Tips from Raymond Weil

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

The Raymond Weil timepieces are a fusion of precision engineering and sleek design. It’s built on the strength of titanium, steel, and carbon fiber. But the environment can be harsh to even the strongest material. To keep your Raymond Weil in excellent condition, follow these simple tips. Clean the watch with soft dry cotton. Don’t use abrasive cloth or wipers to avoid scratches. Keep it away from petroleum products, spirits, and perfumes that may damage the seal, strap, or bracelet. Wear your perfume first before putting on the watch. Make sure the crown—the dial that sets the date and time—is always pushed in and securely locked to avoid water or liquid seeping in. Take the watch off when doing manual work to prevent accidental breaks. If the strap is leather, do not immerse it in water. Wipe it dry asap when it gets wet. And always keep your Raymond Weil in a cool, dry place when storing it.

Perfect Time for Grandpa's Love

Posted by Sylvans at 10:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

The love we have for our family is immeasurable. That's the plain truth...but wait, who said no one can try to express such love in "time", well, rather a timepiece? Raymond Weil did try to do so, in a magnificent way. The eminent watchmaker created a new line of timepiece exclusively for women—the Noemia collection—named after and inspired by Mr. Weil's beloved granddaughter, Noemia. Made only with a quartz movement and offer two diameters, Noemia watches are designed to epitomize true femininity in a timepiece. Perhaps still unsatisfied with such an already elaborate expresion of his love for his granddaughter, GrandPa Weil even came up with a special edition which benefitted a foundation engaged in breast cancer research, Komen for the Cure.

Identity crisis?

Posted by Sylvans at 3:45:00 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

Can elegance and sporty come together? Apparently, yes in a Raymond Weil timepiece. The Freelancer by the Swiss luxury watchmaker is at once masculine and suave. The seamless casing and its smooth lines give the Freelancer a graceful look. The black leather strap that is sewed and folded over on both sides as 18th-century watchmakers would make it, adds a timeless glamour to this watch. On the contrary, the red accents in the dials and numbers are reminiscent of a racer’s timepiece. The bold hour and minute dials and the day and date windows are also unmistakably for a guy who loves an outdoor adventure. No, it doesn’t have an identity crisis; rather, it’s a timepiece for the man with a flair for fashion and that spirit for adventure.

The Modern Expression of Timeless Classics

Posted by Sylvans at 10:00:10 AM in Raymond Weil (21)

The 47-year old Swiss watch company, Raymond Weil, bears the Weil family’s collective love for the theatre and classical music. This shows through in many of the brand’s famous collections such as Nabucco, a set of gentlemen’s chronographs named after the Italian opera by Giuseppe Verdi. The Cuore Caldo Twelve, a recent addition to the collection, subtly blends the sleek modernity of steel, titanium and carbon fiber with the warm and classic richness of 18 carat rose gold and prominent dial design. At the very heart of the “côtes de Genève” piece is an outstanding mechanical chronograph movement with automatic winding, split-second function and 42-hour power reserve indicator. A classic-font “Twelve” indicator and noticeable chronometer borders on the dial, wrapped by an elegant tachymeter bezel, all in rose gold that glimmer like sunset, give an air of drama to the whole piece. Like the rest of Nabucco, Cuore Caldo Twelve upholds the brand’s tradition of refinement and technical supremacy.
