Founded in 1976 in Geneva by Mr Raymond Weil at a time when the watchmaking industry was in turmoil, the company named after its creator enjoyed immediate rapid expansion, growing its way into the circle of successful Swiss watchmakers. The watch collections developed in the early years became major successes with both men and women timepieces offering original designs and contributing to the shaping of the Brand’s identity as one highly inspired by and passionate about music.
The idea of a family company dear to Mr Weil took shape in 1992 when his son in law, Olivier Bernheim,and later his grandson Elie Bernheim became CEO. Over the years, the luxury Swiss watchmaker gradually improved its watchmaking know-how – notably thanks to the creation of its in-house research and development department. Watches became more sophisticated, refined and were equipped with automatic movements and adorned with diamonds and gold. Chronographs, moon phase functions and even in-house innovations like the two-time zone and patented interchangeable bracelet systems further established the success and legitimacy of the Brand.
Bearing these innovations, new very popular watch collections were launched in the 2000s to immediate critical acclaim:Parsifal,Tango,Saxo and Don Giovanni Cosi Grande to name a few.
