Raymond Weil to present Nabucco Rivoluzione at Baselworld
Mar '09
The RAYMOND WEIL nabucco mechanical collection has enjoyed rapid international success since being unveiled in 2007. Now the Swiss watchmaker is set to mark Baselworld 2009 with the launch of a new, exceptional model from this exclusively masculine range – a timepiece plunged into total darkness, symbolising the quintessence of masculine elegance.

Black. The colour of luxury and refinement, of mystery and power. A colour of total class… What other colour could better embody the unique charisma of the nabucco rivoluzione, the latest model in RAYMOND WEIL's star collection?

The new chronograph retains the collection's characteristic design while conveying a hitherto unequalled architectural power, underlined by the fusion of sophisticated materials and highlighted by the nocturnal colouring which transcends its mythical forms.

The sleek, 46mm-diameter case, with its circular bezel and tachometer, is made from steel and titanium to ensure resistance and endurance. Ultra-light, hi-tech carbon fibre is used to decorate the case sides, providing tremendous solidity in addition to its stylish appearance. The watch's use of black is made possible by the PVD metallic coating process: a technique involving the application of a thin film of chromium and titanium carbide, faithfully respecting the original design. For the nabucco rivoluzione, this is especially important for both the bezel's exterior ring – with its alternating polished 'godron décor' and brushed vertical bands – and the fluted push-pieces and crown.

The dial of this mechanical timepiece also exudes a mysterious, avant-garde feel, which can be admired beneath a sapphire crystal, 2.5mm thick, with double-sided anti-glare treatment. Coated in black, the three subdials (30-minutes at 3 o'clock, 12-hours at 6 and 60-seconds at 9), along with the date-window at 4:30, are positioned on a central zone in relief embellished with three screws for optimum clarity. The indexes are perfectly integrated into the darkness of the dial; only the blue hands of the subdials, and the blue chronograph-hand, dare provide a contrast.

The watch's beauty and sophistication culminate in its saddle-stitched crocodylus niloticus leather strap, which is both exclusive and a pleasure to wear, thanks to its folding clasp with double push-piece security, symbolizing RAYMOND WEIL's unceasing quest for perfection. Nothing is left to chance: every detail of this exceptional timepiece has been conceived to obtain an impeccable finish and a design in keeping with the Brand's avant-garde image.

Whereas the aesthetics of the nabucco rivoluzione again underline the audacious, independent nature of the Swiss family firm, connoisseurs of Haute Horlogerie will be definitively won over by the new model's mechanical prowess. An ETA 7753 tri-compax automatic movement, beating at 28 800 vibrations per hour, guarantees the reliability and precision of this masculine chronograph which,with its screwed-down push-pieces, crown and case-back, is water-resistant up to 20 bars/atm.

And finishing touch once more makes all the difference with the Geneva Brand: a pair of round cufflinks, in carbon fibre and titanium coated in PVD black, echo the nabucco rivoluzione's innovative design and make a subtle addition to a box-set that is in perfect harmony with its dark de luxe contents.

Sleek, mysterious, masculine… let yourself be tempted by the nabucco rivoluzione!
