The Raymond Weil watch company was founded in 1976 during the watchmaking industry’s “quartz crisis.” It was a turbulent time, as quartz watches supplanted those with mechanical movements. The Swiss watch industry had 1,600 manufacturers in 1970. By 1983, that was down to 800.
Weil’s entry into the market at that point was, to say the least, audacious.
