Raymond Weil S.A. turns 30 years old in 2006. This relative newcomer to watchmaking circles has already defined a niche for itself. Its Parsifal line, launched in 1991, is easily recognizable and enjoys considerable success. Named for classical and operatic music, Raymond Weil's watch collections are simultaneously modern and classical, embellished with luxurious touches like sapphire cabochons on the crown, luminescent pearls on the dial, and ideal-cut diamonds on the bezel. In recent years, the watchmaker has moved further upscale with introductions of mechanical movements and complications. Stainless steel case and bracelet, push button deployant clasp, white dial, date displayed at the 3 o'clock position, water resistance up to 165 feet( 50 meters).
