Raymond Weil presents Living Legend Award to Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler

2018 SSE Scottish Music Awards

Raymond Weil continued its longstanding association with the music industry last night by presenting a Living Legend Award to Mark Knopfler at the SSE Scottish Music Awards.

UK managing director Craig Leach presented the trophy to the iconic singer, songwriter and guitarist, best-known for his time with Dire Straits, although the band has not performed together since 1995.
