It is to announce with great sad­ness that the fam­ily Weil and Bern­heim are part of the death of Mr. Ray­mond Weil, the founder and name­sake Hon­orary Pres­i­dent of the Swiss watch brand.Raymond Weil

He died peace­fully in Geneva at the age of 87 years. His depar­ture upsets and over­whelms an entire fam­ily, his wife, his chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and great-grandchildren. The suc­cess of RAYMOND WEIL is built on the incred­i­ble deter­mi­na­tion, courage and the vision of its founder, Mr. Ray­mond Weil who was born in Geneva in 1926, after com­mer­cial matu­rity. His first job was in a ser­vice com­pany and then he joined at Camy Watch in 1949. Camy watch is a Geneva watch company.

This crit­i­cal stage of his career marked for­ever his pas­sion for watch mak­ing, and augurs the rest of his career. Pas­sion­ate about his work, Ray­mond Weil quickly took over the man­age­ment of the com­pany, to which he devoted twenty-six years of his life. In 1976, in the midst of watch mak­ing cri­sis, he decided to cre­ate his own com­pany. This vision led him to wear the col­ors of the Swiss watch mak­ing know-how, while mak­ing her acces­si­ble to as many cre­ations. With enthu­si­asm and expe­ri­ence, he imple­ments his brand across the world through a strong net­work of part­ners, and his rela­tional unusual ability.

Ray­mond Weil was a won­der­ful, kind and gen­tle man. He was above all a gen­uine gen­eros­ity. Under his lead­er­ship, any accom­mo­da­tion will con­firm its sta­tus as a renowned brand, rep­re­sent­ing today, more than ever, one of the flag­ships of the Swiss watch mak­ing indus­try. He was rec­og­nized by all as a ref­er­ence of the world of watch making.

Ray­mond Weil has served impor­tant func­tions in sev­eral pro­fes­sional orga­ni­za­tions. He has been the Pres­i­dent of the Union of Man­u­fac­tur­ers Geneva Watch mak­ing, Vice Pres­i­dent of Train­ing Cen­ter Hor­logerie (CFH) in Lau­sanne, and a mem­ber of the Fed­er­a­tion of the Swiss Watch Indus­try (FH) and var­i­ous busi­ness associations.Raymond Weil

Until 1995, Ray­mond Weil has chaired the Exhibitors’ Com­mit­tee of the World Watch and Jew­ellery Show in Basel. Dri­ven by an excep­tional des­tiny, Ray­mond Weil has demon­strated through­out his life, to vision­ary think­ing, inde­pen­dence of mind and admirable deter­mi­na­tion. His pas­sion and inno­v­a­tive ideas con­tinue to influ­ence the work within busi­ness teams and inspire each employee. Ray­mond Weil has left the board of the com­pany in Sep­tem­ber 2013. He left it to her step-son Olivier Bern­heim, as well as those of his grand­chil­dren Elie and Pierre Bern­heim son.
