Raymond Weil’s emblematic collection, Nabucco, makes a strong comeback this year. The architectural proportions of this new piece recall the values of this collection originally inspired by Giuseppe Verdi’s famous opera. Using ceramics on its bezels for the first time, Raymond Weil reinterprets Nabucco boldly, giving birth to a model with distinguished lines and a strong personality.
With its redesigned case, reworked dial and refined bezel, the Nabucco Rivoluzione II combines the precision and know-how of Swiss watchmaking, sophisticated materials and high technology. Carbon, titanium and now, for the first time, ceramics give it an urbane and contemporary allure. In the “all black” version, punctuated with crimson features, including the chronograph counter hands, the date and the stitching on the rubber strap, its sophistication and exclusivity match the materials comprising it.
One of the symbolic elements of the Nabucco collection, the number 12, is the only number here that is not an index. Remaining faithful to its predecessors’ code of ethics, the new Nabucco retains the tachymeter engraved in the ceramic on the bezel, the three counters at 3 o’clock (30 minutes), 6 o’clock (12 hours) and 9 o’clock (small seconds) and the round date window at 4.30. The pointed pusher buttons accentuate the strength of character of this 46mm piece.
To reinforce the links with the musical universe, in which its whole history is anchored, Raymond Weil associates itself with sound specialist Sennheiser. In this way, the Brand suggests the unique experience of combining watchmaking and music, to the great pleasure of lovers of precision, emotions and performance, values common to both worlds that the watchmaker would like to share with its clientele.
