Switzerland is a fascinating country. There are 26 cantons – each canton has its own government, laws, language and constitution. Switzerland is a land of opposites and contradiction; you can discover modern, international cities next to historic villages; ski on incredible mountains alongside breath-taking lakes for swimming. Importantly, Switzerland also has a unique and world class reputation for its watchmaking. The 26 SPIRITS OF SWITZERLAND is a blend of our diverse country, rich history and world class watchmaking.

PEOPLE BEHIND THE BRAND

“The pinnacle of my two passions: Switzerland and watches”

The Founder

Married with 3 children, Pierre Bernheim is the grandson of the famous watchmaker Raymond Weil. He inherited his grandfather’s entrepreneurial and visionary spirit. After working in the family brand RAYMOND WEIL for 6 years as Sales Director, Pierre launched his own watch brand 88 RUE DU RHONE in 2012. 10 years later, with 36 national markets opened, and more than 150’000 watches sold worldwide, the brand was acquired by a leading Chinese business group. Pierre could not quit the watch industry where he had experienced so many memories and so created his new brand, 26 SPIRITS OF SWITZERLAND, in 2021.

This brand is the result of Pierre’s long experience in watchmaking and deep passion for his country, Switzerland. Another of Pierre’s passions is aviation. Pierre is a qualified commercial pilot and has been Vice-Chairman of Geneva International airport since 2019.
