HISTORY:
Raymond Weil Genève is a Swiss luxury watchmaker, founded in 1976 in Geneva. It is a family company founded by Raymond Weil and Simone Bédat. Raymond Weil led the company until his retirement in 2002. Weil died in 2014 and the company is now managed by his grandson Elie Bernheim. Simone Bedat and her son left the company in 1996.
Weil initially sold his designs from a foldout bridge table in a stall in Geneva. The line included both the traditional spring-powered and cog-and-gear mechanical Swiss watches and quartz-powered watches. He marketed the watches internationally towards lower-end luxury watch buyers.
As of 2014, the company sold 200,000 watches yearly at an average price of £1,000.

PRICING:
Raymond Weil started out as a designer and by the start of the 21st century had chosen a more traditional path to Swiss watchmaking. Your quartz calendar wristwatch s aesthetically appealing and would sell today on the open market at a fair market of $190-$215.
