The Raymond Weil, 88 Rue Du Rhone Connection

For generations leading fashion designers  Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors have designed for prominent fashion houses Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Celine respectively, while maintaining their own independently operated eponymous fashion brands. Lagerfeld in fact is not only the creative director for his own brand and Chanel, but he is also the  creative director for house of Fendi too.

You don’t have to look any further in the watch industry than the Raymond Weil and 88 Rue Du Rhone brands for similar circumstances. Both brands are helmed by brothers Eli and Pierre Bernheim and are independently operated. The Bernheims are the grandsons of Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil. In 2012, the two sought out to create and sell luxury Swiss-made watches at highly desirable prices with the introduction of the 88 Rue Du Rhone brand.

The Best Of Bulova…

While some watch brands may boast of their American heritage and roots, Bulova is a true red, white and blue American watch brand with a rich heritage of time-keeping excellence, dating back to 1875 when the brand was founded in New York, NY by Joseph Bulova.

Although a lot has changed in the watch industry and the world since 1875, the brand’s headquarters remain in New York City today over 141 years since it was founded with headquarters on the 29th floor of the Empire State Building.

The brand holds the distinction of being the very first mass producer of timepieces in the world, when they opened a watch production factory in Switzerland in 1912.

These premium crafted timepieces are highlighted this week at TheWatchery.com with our Best of Bulova Event.

Over 60 popular men’s and women’s watches are featured in the promotion, including highly sought-after styles from the Accu-Swiss Masella, Telc, Bellecombe and Kirkwood collections, as well as models from the Bulova Sea King, Crystals, Diamond Gallery and Precisionist series.

Living Longines Dolce Vita…

Longines Watches knows a thing or two about presenting the good life with its expertly crafted timepieces.  This pre-eminent watch brand is perhaps one of the oldest Swiss watchmakers in the world with origins dating back to 1832, when it was founded in Saint-Imier, Switzerland.

The brand is long associated with the world of aviation and has featured a winged hourglass emblem on its watch dials for close to a century. Legendary pilots Charles Lindberg and Amelia Earhart both wore Longines wristwatches during their historic transatlantic flights in the 1920’s. Lindberg later worked with the brand to develop the Longines Hour Angle watch, which featured navigational functions for measuring both longitude and latitude distances while flying.

Longines has also been deeply involved in the world of sports and athletics. The brand provided timers for the first modern Olympics held in 1896. Longines is also the official timekeeper of the prestigious Triple Crown equestrian competition in the United States, as well as being the official time-keeper of the prominent Royal Ascot Race Course in Ascot, England.

The brand is currently popular and sought-after for its  Dolce Vita collection, a tribute to the good life or the sweetness of life, incorporating modern contemporary aesthetics with time-honored Swiss-made precision and design.
