RAYMOND WEIL, luxury Swiss watchmaker today presented International superstar Pharrell Williams with the RAYMOND WEIL International artist Award at the annual Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef event, held at The Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London.

Having just reached Number One with his critically acclaimed new album, 'G I R L', Pharrell Williams has sold over 5 million copies of the single 'Happy' which was the first taken from the album; it also featured on the 'Despicable Me' soundtrack and was nominated for an Oscar this year.

The multi Grammy Award winner, with a career that has spanned over two decades, built global support throughout the nineties and naughties, producing chart toppers Britney Spears' 'I'm A Slave For You' and Nelly's 'Hot In Here'. Pharrell then featured in Snoop Dogg's 'Drop It Like It's Hot' which was named Billboard's 'Song of the Decade' in 2009 - just a few of his vast collaborations and achievements.

Elie Bernheim, CEO - RAYMOND WEIL says: "We are delighted to have presented Pharrell Williams with the RAYMOND WEIL International Award this afternoon at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef luncheon.
