Raymond Weil watches are masterpieces, even among the highly competitive world of Swiss watches, which have long set the global standard for craftsmanship, technology, and design. Although a relatively young company (founded in 1976), Raymond Weil has made a name by using bold colors in conjunction with precious metals. Raymond Weil watches are versatile--equally suitable for the office, vacation, or a night on the town.

Most of the most popular and instantly recognizable pieces from the Raymond Weil collection are named for great works of classical music. Weil is a connoisseur of art and music, particularly opera, and has designed pieces inspired by some of the most famous pieces in the Western canon. For example, his most well known collections include Don Giovanni, Othello, and Parsifal--the latter of which is his signature collection.

Collections of Raymond Weil Watches

The first internationally acclaimed line of Raymond Weil watches was the Amadeus collection, which includes many of his simplest and most classically elegant pieces. Othello introduced a more adventurous use of color (particularly midnight blue) in a line characterized by enigmatic depth, and Traviata made innovative use of color stained crystal. The Parsifal collection was introduced in 1991, and became Weil's signature line immediately thereafter.

Watches in the Parsifal collection feature steel and 18-karat gold in powerful but relatively simple designs. Weil's design objectives were symmetry and harmony--as ever influenced by his love of music, in which those attributes are also virtues. If you are looking for an elegant timepiece which bespeaks both class and a little bit of edge and adventure, you might visit one of the official retailers or browse online for Raymond Weil's impeccable collections.
