Raymond Weil opened its 7th Annual International Photography Competition October 1, 2012.
Photographers that possess a talent and passion for shooting photographs are being invited to submit one JPG format photograph that captures an artistic image with an idealic theme and focus of “Precision is my Inspiration” (the acclaimed Swiss luxury watchmaker’s brand slogan).
Raymond Weil annually seeks out an aspiring artist whose passion of artistic expression rivals the very precision it dedicates in its watchmaking.
