Quartz watches by Raymond Weil strip timekeeping codes back to basics. First and foremost, the watches powered by a quartz are ultra-accurate and therefore suited to those with busy on-the-go lifestyles who want a “no fuss” accompaniment for the wrist. Despite this straightforward approach to timekeeping, nothing aesthetically separates a quartz powered Raymond Weil watch from an automatic Raymond Weil watch. Both versions are beautifully crafted to the very highest standards and combined with the same traditional watchmaking methods that have been handed down the family line generation after generation at the Swiss company’s manufacturing facilities.
Quartz Raymond Weil watches cater for both male and female tastes. Whether you’re looking for a timepiece on a classic black leather strap or prefer the smooth and almost silk-like feel of a polished stainless steel link bracelet close to your skin, the quartz collection is sure to offer a style for every type of individual. Unlike automatic movements, a quartz movement requires no annual servicing, nor does it need to be physically hand wound to keep the hands telling accurate time. Likewise, a quartz watch does not rely on the movement of the wearer’s wrist to create the energy responsible for powering the hands around the dial.
Quartz Raymond Weil watches offer a number of benefits to the avid watch collector. Not only are they more affordable than an automatic version, but they require very little maintenance apart from a battery replacement every few years. Quartz watches are often manufactured in slimmer case depths seen as there is less to fit inside the case. Slimmer watches are a popular choice for ladies wanting to wear their watch under the sleeve of a blouse for work, as well as generally feeling less bulky on the wrist.
A number of quartz watches for men come in chronograph versions from Raymond Weil. Bold and powerful, these timepieces are infused with the technical know-how and expertise of Raymond Weil’s Swiss watchmaking traditions, but look modern and technical at the same time. The Tango 300 watch bears broad dimensions and a sporty aesthetic. The chronograph dials are positioned at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock on the dial, offering ease of operation via their sleek push pieces at 2 and 4 o’clock on the bezel. Whether choosing between a black PVD coated Tango 300 or a model finished in sophisticated stainless steel, these quartz watches guarantee unbeatable precision whilst worn down to depths of 300 meters under water.
The Raymond Weil Tocatta watch 39mm white dial from our collection of quartz watches here at Owen & Robinson, represents timekeeping at its simplest. With minimum fuss and clutter on the dial, the wearer is able to read the time effortlessly thanks to a set of sword-shaped hands and an hour track presented in traditional Roman numerals in a crisp black hue. A date aperture of course, is always a welcomed treat for those in need of a little help keeping track of all those important occasions throughout the year.
