Raymond Weil: Keeping Time Like A 90s Nigerian Drug Baron

Raymond Weil used to be one of the iconic designer brands of the 1990s in Nigeria. It was a favourite watch brand for Nigerian drug smugglers and fraudsters living in London, New York and other American cities (drug peddling used to be much more popular amongst Nigerian criminals, before 419 was later discovered as a less hazardous and more “respectable” way of making dollars). No worthy drug peddler (they were also socialites that dominated the Lagos scene) was praised in a song without the mention of his Raymond Weil watch. Nigerian crime lords have moved on to other wristwatch brands. So, Raymond Weil has reverted to a brand for regular, hardworking folks ( successful 419ers are said to have amazing work ethic).

The price range for RW watches in Lagos is between N400,000 and N2.5 million. But here, we have found you amazing deals on old stock Raymond Weils, so go ahead and add a few gems to your watch collection. Notin do dem, they are as good as new collections.
