Raymond Weil Parsifal Collection (Pictures and Prices)
Nearly three decades after its inception, Raymond Weil’s parsifal collection returns this autumn 2018. First launched in the early 90’s, this heritage range for him and her has been reimagined by the luxury Swiss watchmakers, adding a modern twist in time for gifting season.
Inspired by Richard Wagner's last opera, Parsifal, this revisited collection of men’s and ladies’ timepieces are the perfect accumulation of horology, classic aesthetics and accessible luxury.
parsifal once again shows Raymond Weil's deep attachment to its roots, and desire to preserve tradition as a source of inspiration – while, at the same time, refining the key design elements such as the curved outlines and sophisticated cross link bracelet which have forged the powerful identity of this symbolic collection.
More key features include the emblematic gadroon bezel, classic two-tone steel and Roman numeral detailing. With a contemporary matte white dial, the crown is embellished with blue lacquer, adding a subtle pop of colour to this timeless design.
Experience simple, understated luxury, with a matching timepiece for him and her, the perfect gift for couples this festive season. Both ladies and gents will experience an ergonomic fit with the distinctive cross link bracelets.
Available in 41mm and 30mm cases, parsifal is a reimagination of the legendary original collection and a reminder of Raymond Weil’s handmade Swiss heritage.
Second half of 2018 will also see a new iteration of the award-winning Parsifal ad campaign that took the creative world by storm in 1994. Consolidating Raymond Weil’s commitments to the musical arts, the Precision Movements campaign portrayed graceful dancers in mid-air across a range of different creatives. Now, 24 years later, the innovative creative will be reimagined for a new audience.
