Raymond Weil Nabucco Cuore Caldo

Oct 09, 2008
The Raymond Weil Nabucco Cuore Caldo watch has highlighted the history of the company as the first split-second chronograph with power-reserve indicator.

The innovative timepiece, unveiled at Baselworld 2008, has been created in a limited edition of 500 pieces, each bearing an individual serial number from 001/500 to 500/500 on the case-back.

The new watch has inherited the design codes of the highly successful Nabucco collection - a case measuring 46mm in diameter, 200-meter water-resistance and perfect finish.

The Nabucco Cuore Caldo is equipped with an ETA bi-compax 7750 mechanical movement with self-winding chronograph. The mechanism, beating at 28 800 vibrations per hour, provides two additional complicated features: a split-second hand and a 42-hour power-reserve indicator.

Due to the ETA bi-compax movement, the brand's engineers and designers have managed to unite a power-reserve indicator placed at 6.30 with a 30-minute sub-dial at 3 o'clock and a 60-second sub-dial at 9 o'clock.

The watch has been created in a smart combination of materials - fine 18K pink gold, steel, ultra-light titanium and carbon fibre.

The sporty black checked dial is reliably protected by a 2.5mm sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-glare treatment. The polished rose gold hands are fitted with luminous strips for perfect legibility at nighttime.

The Raymond Weil Nabucco Cuore Caldo is secured to the wrist with a vulcanized rubber strap, embellished with black leather inserts, and fitted with a steel folding-clasp with double push-piece security for great comfort of wearing.

The screwed-down titanium case-back gives the pleasure of feasting one's eyes on the beauty of the timepiece's workings, with the sapphire crystal revealing the delicate finish of the movement, featuring Cotes de Geneve decor and circular graining.

One more surprise for connoisseurs of elegant accessories! Each Nabucco Cuore Caldo is housed into a luxury presentation box and goes with a refined, matching pair of fluted round cufflinks crafted in gold-plate, steel and carbon fibre, as well as a brass/carbon fibre ball-point pen. The top and barrel of the pen reveal a satin finish with carbon fibre inserts and each end has the gold-plated monogram of the brand.
