I spotted this Raymond Weil Tradition Swiss Quartz watch at a Costco. Raymond Weil is one of the last independent Swiss watch makers. The firm was founded in 1976 by an experienced watch maker that struck out on his own during the height of the Swiss Quartz watch crisis.
Raymond Weil Style
From a design watch, this Raymond Weil is an interesting gold-tone dress watch. The Roman numerals on the dial look modern and lean forward. Yet, the watch itself is very traditional. A small date window at 3 o’clock adds to the functionality. This Raymond Weil Tradition model has a gold-tone stainless steel case. With it’s genuine Swiss pedigree, a Raymond Weil watch would look great in any business setting. Even on the weekend, if your idea of casual is khaki slacks and rolled up sleeves on a monogrammed dress shirt, this watch would fit you well. It has a classy understated look.
Raymond Weil Availability
While many Swiss watches are priced for the stratosphere, this Raymond Weil watch is priced in an affordable zone of around $500. That makes it a watch that most men can aspire to own. I like that. You shouldn’t have to spend a vast sum of money to display that you are a person with good taste and refined sensibilities. You may be able to find this particular model at CostCo or at Overstock.com. However, it is available for a reasonable price at Amazon.com as well.
There are a variety of other watch styles in the Raymond Weil Tradition line. These include a handsome stainless steel variation of this watch and a variety of round dial watches.
