In 2010, with its powerful, international influence, the Swiss watch manufacturer decided to establish its presence in the country that is the epitome of luxury goods, with the opening at the end of October of a corner in Galeries Lafayette Haussmann. This department store, an absolute shopping must for tourists, is Paris' second most visited site after the Louvre. RAYMOND WEIL is thus providing for its collections a prestigious area at the apex of French style in general and of Parisian chic in particular.
RAYMOND WEIL, a highly coveted brand…
Having conquered a place in the vanguard of international markets, especially in the US, China, and India, RAYMOND WEIL has decided to give a new dimension to its presence in France, where the Brand has remained very discreet until now. A family company over three generations, for RAYMOND WEIL, independence is more than trademark, it's a state of mind. With its bold and avant-garde spirit, firmly based on a genuine watchmaking know-how, RAYMOND WEIL demonstrates a profound attachment to its roots and a desire to preserve tradition as a source of inspiration.
The DNA of a brand apart
With its creative and diversified collections, RAYMOND WEIL has chosen to position itself in an affordably-priced segment, while still continuing with its quality watchmaking expertise. Masculine chronographs in pink gold or with powerful, stylish designs, timeless, mechanical watches of refined style, jewellery watches sublimely feminine...
RAYMOND WEIL is distinguishing itself as a watch manufacturer, who dares to combine originality with technology. Very active in the cultural, artistic domain, the Company is involved in a number of sponsorship activities and has established the prestigious RAYMOND WEIL International Photography Prize, considered as one of the world's most important photo competitions.
Galeries Lafayette, a legend in Paris
Under the stained-glass, art nouveau coupola, at the forefront of artistic trends…a venue of undeniable prestige for the leading luxury brands, Galeries Lafayette has always been THE place to shop in Paris. With its new corner at the heart of the watchmaking department, on the ground floor of the Boulevard Haussmann store, RAYMOND WEIL offers its creations a magnificent showcase. So it's at the centre of this prestigious universe that the maestro collection will be under the spotlight among others. Mechanical pieces specially conceived for those who see the beauty of an authentic gesture in the act of rewinding one's watch every day. Far from the world of fashion and its ephemeral trends, maestro soberly reinterprets a certain notion of constant classicism, chic and refined.
