Raymond Weil Unveils Nabucco Sports-Styled Watch

Sep 19, 2007
Raymond Weil Geneva watchmaker has recently launched its new Nabucco watch collection composed of exclusively masculine mechanical timepieces. The collection was initially presented by the brand at the prestigious Baselworld 2007 international watch fair.

The Nabucco chronograph has been destined to become the first watch model by Raymond Weil to be housed in an imposing 46-mm case with sturdy construction. The timepiece boasts 200-meter water-resistance. The independent family watchmaker opted for carbon fiber, a high-tech material, resistant and ultra-light, incorporated by the steel case.

Raymond Weil has paid meticulous attention to every detail, thus the Nabucco watch collection is characterized by unique symmetry and coherence. The carbon fiber on the case matches that of the Raymond Weil watch's bracelet featuring check effect. This typical characteristic of the material is also sported on the black dial.

The fluted push-pieces of the case are designed the similar way as the crown equipped with a polished steel protection system. Raymond Weil has created an original combination of contrasts between circular-vertical brushed-polished steel on the bezel, case, and bracelet. The case back reveals the new Brand monogram that seems to be struck into the steel. The dial has the screws matching those on the sides, necessary for fixing the carbon fiber plates.

The Raymond Weil Nabucco is developed with the new look special for its unique charisma. The 3 screws are positioned around the sub-dials.

The dial of the Nabucco watch also shows an applique figure '12' and eleven polished and nickeled applique indexes provided with luminescent highlights to reach utmost legibility, no matter day or night. The dial of the timepiece is created in the contemporary color scheme.

The Raymond Weil watch has a 30-minute sub-dial placed at 3 o'clock, an hour-counter at 6 o'clock, while a 60-second sub-dial is positioned at 9 o'clock. The date sported at 4-30 is set with help of a separate push-button on the case placed at 10 o'clock.

The circular bezel is worth special attention - it also boasts perfect craftsmanship. The watchmakers produced the bezel in two separate stages to come up with a quality finish reflecting Raymond Weil's horological know-how.

The upper bezel, provided with tachometer scale, is crafted in circular brushed steel, while the exterior is polished with 'godron' decor featured between brushed vertical bands. The ensemble is flawlessly set into the Nabucco's case as a fine addition to the timepiece's unique design.

In the heart of the Nabucco there beats the Valjoux 7753 tri-compax chronograph movement beating at 28 800 vibrations per hour and offering an advantage of 46-hour power-reserve.
