How to take care of your watch

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

A luxury watch like Raymond Weil is designed to last for a long time. But you can make it last and look good for even a longer time with proper care. Here are some tips. Wipe the glass cover with soft cotton and never use any agent to make it shine. A tested trick is to blow hot air on it with your mouth to fog the glass, then gently wipe it off. You’ll have a shiny glass afterwards. When not in use, the watch should be put in its box lined with soft surface or place it in a cotton wrap to avoid scratching the surface or protect it from dust. Do not wear the watch with other metal jewelry piece like cuff or bracelet to avoid scratching each other. When you walk closely with your partner or hold hands while walking, make sure to switch the watch to the far-side wrist, the one away from her.

Music and Raymond Weil

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

Raymond Weil is one of a few luxury Swiss watch brands that remains independently owned. Since its foundation in 1976, when Swiss watches were under threat of extinction by Japan’s quartz technology, Raymond Weil has not only stayed afloat, but created one of the watch industry’s signature themes: the music inspired watch. Raymond Weil has been involved in the music industry, sponsoring or supporting orchestras, for over 35 years now. The watch signature evokes the same precision, timing, and artistry as a symphony fuses different instruments and notes to fashion out a melody. The result is a dress watch whose minute parts tick in unison and encased in sleek and chic classic yet contemporary style. A Raymond Weil watch is as casual a corporate accessory or formal as a tuxedo accent.

The Music of Raymond Weil

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

How do you describe a Raymond Weil? Perhaps with music. The signature takes inspiration from classical orchestra. The fine lines and simple but elegant style of Raymond Weil watches like the Nabucco evoke the graceful lineup of various instruments of an orchestra. It’s a motley collection of different musical instruments, yet are united and reduced to a singular rhythm and melody once the music starts. The orchestra maintains its cohesion as every component in a Raymond Weil watch keeps its beat in perfect unison with the rest. The result is akin to a well-executed symphony that delivers highs and lows but never missing a beat. It’s a beauty to behold and even more beautiful once it functions. We’re talking about the orchestra, but we could very well be referring to a Raymond Weil.

Dress watch tips

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

Having a hard time choosing the right dress watch? Consider these easy tips. Decide which is more important to you: prestige of a brand or the affordability of generic watches? Keep in mind that luxury brands are a guarantee the watch will last a long time. Likewise, think of the watch’s materials for durability and flexibility. A leather strap may look nicer, but you may have to replace it in the long run. Ceramic is strong but delicate, and it adds a more modern look than stainless steel. You should also choose how much features you want in your dress watch. The more features, naturally, the bulkier the watch is. A dress watch should be kept simple and elegant. Raymond Weil is easily one of the best dress watches today. It’s sleek and simple design creates a classic feel that fits a subtle but sophisticated fashion taste.

In Good Family Hands

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Raymond Weil (38)

Starting, leading and working in a family business can bring valuable benefits compared with other businesses. After all, the family is a natural team, and in a family business, the members can think about something in the morning and begin working on it in the afternoon. A family business is much faster than companies that have to go through a more politicized process of getting things done. You and your family are likely to share the same ethos and beliefs on how things should be done which in turn can give you an extra sense of purpose and pride - and a competitive edge for your business. Knowing full well of these advantages, Raymond Weil, the Geneva-based brand of watches belongs to the limited circle of Swiss watchmakers still in family hands.

The Rhythm of a Watch

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

When Raymond Weil decided to join the Swiss watch making company, Camy Watch S.A., he had a pertinent and persistent vision for independence. Flaming with ardent devotion to the craft and unqualified leadership, he was able to take over of the company's leadership and eventually became the manager of the company for approximately twenty six years. Nonetheless, he never forgot his ambition to create his very own watch company. It was on the year 1976 that Raymond Weil became a name for itself. Embarking on a future where it arose out of crises and adversity, it became a famous brand until the present. Coupled with enthusiasm and his vast experience in the watch industry, he began to explore the wider Europe just to get a glimpse of what are the prevailing fashion, behavior and social attitude of people relative to the essence of time and its object, the watch.
Raymond Weil believes that in riding with the flow of fashion and with the anticipation of the need, he could create a watch that could perfectly fit the sense and character of a person. Embodying upon these ideals, he tapped the expertise of his son-in-law, Oliver Bernheim in 1982.
Full of dynamism and vision, Oliver restructured, developed and ensured a sustainable growth in the international market while preserving the watch of its family identity. He created an impact by establishing a significant brand expansion, which introduce novel creations which are sophisticated mechanical timepieces. It developed entry level collections which has a wider range of communication strategy.
Adhering family tradition, the sons of Oliver Bernheim eventually joined the company which solidifies the brand renown for its class and luxury. Elie and Pierre Bernheim were music enthusiast as proteges of their mother's passion.
The siblings dual entry in the company made significant changes especially in brand development and marketing by tapping the social networking sites. It eventually made a niche in the internet industry that made the Raymond Weil's collection of watches a solid brand to contend with.

Inspired by family values of cooperation and coherence in taste, it is truly a beauty of luxury. Immensely developed by modern standards and created for adaptation, this work of art can be worn as an emblem of character. The aristocratic finesse in very watch captivates an aura of elegance and command.
The introduction of the new lines of collection of watches allowed the market to have variant choices dependent on their taste and character. The musically themed watches, the Amadeus, named after the great Mozart, paved the way for another musically themed watch, the Fidelio. The Fidelio is named after Beethoven's only opera, the watch was designed in a more subtle details. The elegance of the collection is under the guise of duality and liberty, its a mixture of skillfully interlaced satin finish and polished gold plated bracelet links, an interplay of shiny and matt contrast on the case. A brilliant presentation of irresistible double play.
The Othello Collection which was offered to the public as a blend of avant-garde technology and refined design. The ultra thin timepiece (1.2mm) played a great part in the worldwide success of its brand due to its technical construction and prowess, and its distinctive symbolism on creative audacity and an appeal of individuality. 
In 1988, another spectacular product was launched, the Traviata collection. It broke down traditional aesthetic criteria in watch making, exemplifying a projection in the Raymond Weil's brand, a bold yet tastefully refined innovator. This new innovation elevates the company to a higher pedestal of creativity and quality. Its aggressive, consistent display of creative innovation with elegant taste captured the market. Combining it with their advertising prowess, it projected an image of association in water, earth and fire. The essential elements of man's survival. This creates an adventurous attitude cloaked in every watch collection; eager to go beyond though beyond is nothing but yonder.

The world, the industry just keeps changing: there are constantly new versions of software; new formats to deal with; whole new approaches.  Change is inevitable. In fact it may be the only true constant.  Change means reinvention. Re-inventing isn’t optional. If you want to work you have to be perceived as being current. Each time a major shift happens in our lives—leaving a job or a relationship, moving, losing a loved one—we have to take control of who we will become or risk never reaching our full potential – a reinvention that changes the game. 
After 20 years of success, Swiss Watch Manufacturer Raymond Weil celebrated the relaunch of its Parsifal Collection in 2010 with great splendor, consolidating its strong identity and distinctive design features.

Make a Difference with Raymond Weil

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death around the world. In 2007, cancer claimed the lives of about 7.6 million people in the world. Known medically as a malignant neoplasm, cancer is a broad group of various diseases, all involving unregulated cell growth. In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumors, and invade nearby parts of the body. The cancer may also spread to more distant parts of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream. Cancer is the new "great imitator". Thus it is not uncommon for people diagnosed with cancer to have been treated for other diseases to which it was assumed their symptoms were due. There are over 100 different types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected. But the most heart-breaking of all are the type of cancers that affect children. 
One out of every 600 children suffers from cancer. Although recovery rates from childhood cancers have improved considerably in the last 30 years (from 30% to around more than 70%), these illnesses are still the second leading cause of death in children over one year old. What is more distressing is not the diagnosis but also the process of healing. The diagnosis and treatment of cancer are a stressful and threatening experience, which can be emotionally devastating to children. Despite the improved prognosis, the course of cancer treatment has tremendous impact on children. Cancer treatments like radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or stem cell transplants kill cells that grow quickly, such as cancer cells. But in a child, many healthy cells in organs throughout the body are growing fast, too. Treatment can damage these cells and keep them from growing and developing the way they should. Sometimes the damage from treatment isn't serious enough to cause problems that are noticed right away, but they may show up over time. What’s more upsetting is that younger children's bodies tend to be more sensitive to the effects of radiation; and some children may be at greater risk for side effects. For example, the bodies of children with the hereditary form of retinoblastoma (an eye cancer) are more sensitive to the effects of radiation. Some types of chemotherapy, given either into a vein (intravenous, or IV chemo) or directly into the spinal column (intrathecal chemo), can also cause learning disabilities in children. These problems are more common if higher doses of certain chemo drugs are used, and if the child is younger at the time of treatment. Learning disabilities are more common in children who get both chemo and radiation to the brain.
That is why it is worth mentioning the efforts made by the Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit of Geneva University Hospital that is currently working actively to develop more effective and less toxic treatments for those children. These efforts have not been left unnoticed especially by Raymond Weil, a luxury brand of exquisite timepieces, the brand that knows certainly how time is of the essence when it comes to cancer patients. In its involvements with the several charities to make this world a better place, and with its commitment for many years in various charity actions, Raymond Weil renewed its initiative in 2012 to aid the Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit of Geneva University Hospital’s research and treatment of those who have been touched by the dreadful disease of Cancer, this time, in partnership with its lo-time and prospective customers.  Always a leader in the field of new technologies, Raymond Weil is the first Swiss luxury watchmaker to use Facebook as a selling platform for this timepiece. The Brand wanted to share its engagement to this cause with the entire Facebook community to reach as many people as possible. For the Basel Fair, Raymond Weil provides the opportunity to support the fight against childhood cancers and buy on its Facebook page a maestro edition limited to 5 pieces engraved with the mention “maestro Mouvement d’Espoir – Edition Spéciale 2012”. The proceeds from the sale will be doubled by Raymond Weil and donated to the Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit of Geneva University Hospital – Switzerland. At the heart of the maestro Mouvement d’Espoir special navy blue model – unique because of its aesthetics and the beauty of the cause it symbolizes, beats a self-winding automatic movement. Like all the models of the maestro collection, its refined casing is snapped with a sapphire crystal at the back, which enables amateurs to admire the movement of this timepiece. Its silver dial decorated with a central zone in “Clou de Paris” and sprinkled with blued Arabic numerals is shining like hope in the night of the navy blue leather strap.

The elegant, refined freelancer summertime offers a delicious mix of freshness and emotion, with its subtle interplay of materials and colors, and its distinctive blend of magical diamonds and watchmaking know-how.

Change with Raymond Weil

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:50:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)


Change is an inevitable part of our existence in this world. One cannot do away with change, rather accept it as part of a better future. But when change comes at almost blinding pace, kindness and compassion helps. 
A new stunning sport watch from Raymond Weil Nabucco Collection marks change in an interesting new way. Written in golden letters, at the top of the striking, galvanic dial, the large “Twelve” of the new Nabucco Cuore Caldo Chronograph represents “the turning point between yesterday and tomorrow, between the past and the future.” Consequently, Raymond Weil has chosen to support the fight against cancer. Thus, through the sale of the new luxury model, it will renew its support for the Pediatric Onco-Hematology unit of the University of Geneva-Switzerland Hospital. With your kindness, you get beauty in return. The new Nabucco Cuore Caldo Chronograph features the amazing fusion of high-quality materials. In order to craft a unique, bold looking watch, Raymond Weil joined together polished and satin finished steel, titanium, carbon fiber and the most striking, 18 karat rose gold. 
The Nabucco Cuore Caldo Twelve is the first model to display the number 12 in letters, to “underline that every day is precious and that change is within our reach”. Come see it at Schiffman’s in Downtown Greensboro.
