The story of RAYMOND WEIL is rooted in the inspiring personal history of the modern legend in the Swiss watch industry: Mr. Raymond Weil himself. He was born in 1926 in the watchmaking capital of the world, Geneva, Switzerland. With a passion for watches that began in early childhood, Mr. Raymond Weil climbed among the ranks of great luxury timepiece designers and successfully created some of the best selling timepieces for several established brands. In 1976, Mr. Raymond Weil decided to take an entrepreneurial leap by creating a line of watches under his own name. Since its establishment, RAYMOND WEIL Geneve remains one of the only independent Swiss watch companies not to have lost its family heritage. Today, this globally recognized brand continues to enhance its art through the creations manufactured in the heart of the “Valley de Joux”, the world’s main center for luxury watchmaking.
