In today’s ever changing world of luxury wristwatches for men and women, the brand Raymond Weil has held a prominent position for over 35 years.
The brand was founded in 1976, by Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil, who had worked over 26 years in the watch industry and was previously the President of the Geneva Watchmaker Union, as well as Vice President of the Watchmaking Industry Training Centre. Weil at time wanted to turn his vision into what Swiss watchmaking should be with timepieces that would bring a new dimension to the industry.
With the launch of the Amadeus Collection in conjunction with the Academy Award winning film of the same name in 1983 and the introduction of the Othello collection, a revolutionary ultra-thin watch series three years later, Raymond Weil timepieces garnered international acclaim and worldwide success.
The Raymond Weil brand today is still family-owned and operated. It remains one of the few remaining independent Swiss watchmakers. The company’s passion for exemplary Swiss-watchmaking only supersedes its influence and inspiration from music.
From the early Amadeus, Fidelio, Traviata, Saxo and Parsifal collections to today’s Maestro and Tango series, music has played a big part in the series names as well as the harmonious blend of materials, meticulous movement and precision design incorporated into each timepiece.
The Parsifal wristwatch, originally introduced in 1991, is among Raymond Weil’s most respected and coveted timepieces. The series, available at internet retailer WorldofWatches.com is renowned for its lightweight characteristics and innovative design.
The Parsifal Automatic Chronograph for men features an ultra-thin case in premium grade stainless steel, presented on the signature link bracelet in stainless steel and 18K yellow gold. The polished 18K yellow gold bezel encircles the silvery white dial with gold colored hands and Roman numeral hour markers.
Features include an automatic date calendar, 26-jewel automatic Swiss movement and water resistance to 330 feet. Timepiece is 38mm in diameter and 10mm thick.
