One of the last independent Swiss brands in the watch industry, Raymond Weil is a company that still is run by its very own family members and has got some interesting inspirations behind its watch collections. Check it below:
Amadeus (1983) – Named after Mozart, a classical Austrian composer, it shows the first influence of music and arts on the watch collection names. It was launched together with Miloš Forman’s film which bared the same name. This collection had another launch in 1992, the Amadeu 200 which became the brand’s first sports watch with up to 200 m water resistance qualities. Sadly both collections have been discontinued.
Here is one of the few Amadeus that we stock online:

1990’s Raymond Weil Amadeus 200 Date Quartz Men’s Watch.
Fidelio (1985)– Also another discontinued range, this collection was named after the only opera conducted by Beethoven.
Othello (1986) This collection saw the celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary consisting of ultra-thin pieces and containing their first moon phase complication. It was launched again in 2001, Raymond Weil’s 25th anniversary which celebrated the brand’s association with the musch band bond. Its name is based on Shakespeare’s story of Othello which contains many emotions of passion, love and betrayal.
Parsifal (1991) This collection was the brand’s first watch collection made from stainless steel and 18k gold and its name originates from Wagner’s opera. Still available today, the collection was relaunched in 2010. This is one of their most expensive collections.
