Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph - Freedom and Independence

Feb 26, 2010
The Raymond Weil iconic Nabucco collection of stylishly-designed and highly-functional watches welcomes a new member. The timepiece, sculptured in sandblasted titanium, catches the glance by its elegantly powerful architecture.

The Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph watch has received its original name after the famous "Va, pensiero, sull'ali dorate" chorus from Verdi's opera "Nabucco."

The new Raymond Weil watch is sure to be highly appreciated by watch lovers due to the use of sophisticated materials, eye-catching design and its timekeeping precision. The brand has created the watch as a symbol of freedom and independence. It will be officially presented at Baselworld 2010.

The handsome case of the watch measures 46mm in diameter and incorporates a tachymeter-scale bezel that allows to calculate speeds. It demonstrates a remarkably subtle matte finish. The case construction also features a fluted screwed-down winding crown reliably protected by massive shoulders, screwed-down chronograph pushers and the date corrector found on the upper left side of the case. Having the screwed case-back, revealing a RW monogram, the case construction is 200-meter water-resistant.

The face of the watch is shielded by synthetic sapphire crystal that is 2.5mm thick and characterized by supreme scratch-resistance.

The dial of the Va Pensiero watch stands out due to structural and textural peculiarities. The background of the face is presented in textured pale grey. It demonstrates a raised central section in dark grey secured by three screws and completed with the small seconds sub-dial and chronograph 12-hour and 30-minute sub-dials. The date is featured in a round aperture between 4 and 5 o'clock. The dial also features hour indexes shown in luminescent anthracite.

The heart of the Raymond Weil Nabucco watch is a reliable ETA 7753 self-winding movement beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement offers a power reserve of approximately two days. It animates continuous small seconds, elapsed hour and minute counters, as well as an easy-to-correct simple calendar function. The movement boasts bridges adorned with circular graining decorations, and the centrally-positioned winding rotor personalized with Raymond Weil signature.

The Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph watch is presented on a saddle-stitched crocodile leather strap equipped with a titanium folding clasp provided with double security release elements.
