The new Nubeo watch collection has been created to unite the values shared by the world of sports and the world of luxury watchmaking.
Moreover, watches.infoniac.com has found out that Ivan Castro, Nubeo’s co-founder, is an avid basketball fan. Mr. Castro wants Nubeo’s customers to wear something different from the big brand names. He says, the brand creates timepiece following its own rules.
The sophisticated case construction of the Black Mamba watch, that is equally light and sturdy, has been created using a number of innovative materials.
The 48mm-in-diameter case, built from 131 components, is crafted from titanium treated with DLC to add extra strength to the case components and enhance its look with eye-appealing black finish.
It incorporates a ceramic bezel built from 36 parts, as well as rubber crowns and pushers. The case is coupled with a masculine rubber strap.
There are also versions of the watch adorned with sapphires.
The boldly-designed Nubeo watch is animated by a self-winding mechanical movement - the Valjoux 7750 calibre. It is 100-meter water-resistant.
The Nubeo Black Mamba watch collection is to be introduced at Baselworld 2009. The price of the timepiece is expected to be around 22,000 dollars at the lowest.
