RAYMOND WEIL nabucco Cuore Vivo Limited Edition

After the successful launch of prestigious timepieces like nabucco Cuore Caldo, nabucco Rivoluzione and nabucco Inverso, Swiss luxury watch brand RAYMOND WEIL enhances its nabucco collection with a new model: nabucco Cuore Vivo. Named after Nabucco, the famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi, this iconic collection now adds a new exceptional model. The new model launching in 2012, is an elegant, stylish collection with a distinctive design and imposing proportions, opens its heart and proposes a glimpse of its mysteries to lovers of beautiful mechanics and lyrical lines.

Thanks to an adaptation to the movement, the dial of the nabucco Cuore Vivo opens at 10 o’clock, allowing the light to filter across the going train of the complex balance and escapement wheels. This delicate assembly, the heart of the watch, is protected by an impressive 46mm diameter case made of a titanium and steel, water-resistant to a depth of 200m.

Highlighted by the titanium of the tachymeter bezel, the black opaline dial of the timekeeper is embellished with a central checkered motif, luminescent indexes and a larger than ever Arabic numeral 12. Three silver counters complete the measuring instrument: at 3 o’clock (30-minute counter), at 6 o’clock (12-hour counter) and at 9 o’clock (small seconds). Finally, its rubber alligator-style bracelet, fully water-resistant, combines softness, comfort and strength. The nabucco Cuore Vivo, limited to 400 pieces, comes in a presentation box to match its image.
