Maestro Mr. Raymond Weil Limited Edition Watch Review
Thursday - 20 November 2014
"Raymond Weil was a great man whose vision led to the creation of a company which, over the course of almost four decades, has gained international renown," the brand explains. "The company remains to this day one of the last few independent family-run watchmakers – and is the legacy left by an exceptional man to his family."
Raymond Weil's grandson, Elie Bernheim, took over the company in April 2014.
A special timepiece has been created in fitting tribute to Raymond Weil and the "audacity and courage" he displayed when launching his own business. The Maestro Mr. Raymond Weil Limited Edition is a limited to 100 pieces, with each unique number engraved on its movement. It has a 45 mm 18K rose gold case and genuine brown alligator strap. A circular tachometric scale appears on the dial, along with Raymond Weil's signature and gold applied baton indexes.
The watch is powered by an automatic winding mechanical movement with a 42-hour power reserve and chronometer certification by the COSC. A 'côtes de Genève' decoration embellishes the skeleton oscillating weight, and the chronograph push buttons are positioned on both sides of the 18K rose gold fluted crown.
The brand explains that the Maestro Mr. Raymond Weil Limited Edition is "not only highlighting its attachment to watch-making values but above all to family values, which will continue through high-quality creations, flying the flag for renowned Swiss watch-making expertise."
The watch is presented in a luxurious box made of olive tree wood and bearing Raymond Weil's signature.
