The Raymond Weil Toccata collection is inspired by the musical acumen carried by a composer. Be it the straight lines or baton-shaped hands, the inspiration is coveted by the brand and enthusiasts alike. The collection also holds a series of timepieces that are inspired by the rectangular watches from the 1920s during the art-deco movement. Initially started in 1996, the line was discontinued, till it was re-launched in 2014 to provide the audience with a piece truly worth owning.
There are two types of design incorporated in the Raymond Weil Toccata collection, one with a round case and the other with a rectangular.
Toccata means ‘to touch’ and it is usually referred to fast musical pieces played using a keyboard or a string instrument. Toccata is primarily used to show off the conductor’s acumen or the ‘touch’. Raymond Weil shows off its design ‘touch’ with the Toccata collection. Be it the art-deco-inspired rectangular cases or the clean minimalistic round ones, the collection foretells the story of the brand’s decade-long heritage.
The Raymond Weil Toccata collection is an embodiment of aesthetic acumen. With an uncluttered dial, the collection features a date window at the 3 o’clock marker. Whereas, the sleek baton-shaped hands denote the conductor’s baton. This inspiration from the world of Opera tells the story of the brand’s close association with the music world.
Available in either a rectangular-shaped dial or a round one, the collection features both Roman numerals and index markers.
Adding a sense of femininity to the collection, there are timepieces that specially cater to the needs of a woman. Be it a mother-of-pearl dial or diamond markers, the collection took care of the feminine spectrum.
The rectangular variant is offered with a date window at the 3 o’clock marker and Roman numerals. These art-deco-inspired watches are also available with mother-of-pearl dials and diamond markers. In a bid to further beautify the collection, there are also timepieces that are fitted with diamond-studded bezels or can be found with bright hues such as ruby and green.
There are also iterations with circular dials that are equipped with lacquered and mother-of-pearl dials studded with diamond markers.
