AVENUES OF BUDAPEST  DISTRICT, 6.  – 64. ANDRÁSSY AVENUE.

ABSOLUTELY PALACE IN THE WORLD OF WATCHES AND JEWELRY

A little bit of Paris in Budapest! When you roll along at the Andrássy Avenue you would feel your  rolling along on the  Champs-Élysées.  Cafés, luxury specialty shops and is one of the most famous street and one of the most expensive strip of real estate in the world.

So back to Budapest where another luxury store opened, the OREX – watches and jeweller’s by Dorotheum – Austria. This official opening was connected with a reception by invited special guest.

The Raymond Weil (Geneve) watches were out on display and Ms. Veera Collomb-Patton, Area Sales Manager opened the store by introducing  Raymond Weil’s history in the business of watches, saying: Mr. Raymond Weil, is a Swiss family firm. Founded in Geneva, in 1976. He has formed an exclusive position in the world of exclusive watchmaking. His watches are  present  around the world’s market and is constantly growing. Raymond Weil has just marked his 35 years of history  and is celebrating its ruby anniversary. As many may know the ruby, is one of the most precious stones, that represents:victory, love, happiness and most of all the passion for the family.

Like musicians who assemble musical notes into a work of harmony, the four members of the Raymond Weil  “clan” all know how to compose as a team and as individuals. In 1982, Olivier Bernheim, Raymond Weil’s son-in-law, joined the company and became its Managing Director and General Manager in 1996. The family company proudly celebrated  the arrival of the third generation with Elie and Pierre Bernheim. The latest watch is named after Mr. Raymond Weil’s  newly born granddaughter: Noemia.

Music and art are at the centre of the  Raymond Weil’s universe. Mr. Weil’s collection of watches reflects to the names of famous opera  composers: Verdi, Mozart, Don Giovanni, Nabucco etc. Art and Culture had always a special part in his life. His brand has long enjoyed close links with  our planet of music. Raymond Weil is also an active patron of Arts. He is closely involved in promoting young talents. He has the Raymond Weil International Photography Prize. It have had reach already to be the World’s leading photography competition. Not only the offered award, nor the famous partners, but the brands have attracted (Paris Photo, Aperture etc.)  perfectly that embodies Mr. Weil’s desire to provide a long-term support for the young artists”.

During the evening there was no surprise about the invited artists. Two famous opera singers were sharing piece of plays from world-wide know operas. Mr. and Ms. shared a beautiful evening in the house yard area with the charming lights of  Xmas. The event couldn’t have had been better organized with bringing closer the Xmas feeling. The touch of warming the heart (and body) with the excellent  hot-hot mulled wine,  roast pumpkin, roast almonds, sautéed  sugar-coated walnuts, baked apples and some crunchy-munchies. Close to the end there was a raffle along with the touch of Mr.  Raymond Weil’s unequivocal thoughtfulness: two tickets for two to the Hungarian State Opera House and a very special romantic prize: an evening ride on the horse-drawn carriage through the sparkling lights of Xmas decorated trees along on both sides of  the Andrássy Avenue.

The Orex shop is a little palace, not only rich with its watches and jeweller’s but the shop is charming that lies at one of the oldest streets in Budapest’s. Even not intending to do any shopping it is worthwhile to visit.
