The Raymond Weil Legacy

Mr Raymond Weil’s independent mind and kindness will continue to inspire us every day.

-From a statement that appeared on the Raymond Weil Watch Brand’s Official Website on January 27 2014, the day of his passing.

Raymond Weil was a self-made man…He was my mentor, and I learned so much from him. His legacy and enthusiasm will live on through our family, his brand, its team over the world, and all of those who wear the watch that bears his name.

-Company president and CEO Olivier Bernheim, Raymond Weil’s son-in-law

He was the first person to look at watches as a luxurious accessory…
