Swiss watch brand RAYMOND WEIL unveils the limited edition NABUCCO CUORE CALDO TWELVE timepiece from their nabucco collection. The number 12 of this spectacular timepiece has more highlighted and is written in gold letters. A part of the sales revenue from this watch will be donated to the improvement of cancer treatment among children.
The nabucco collection, known for its sleek design and its architectural proportions, has always played with the number 12, the only number which is not an index. Often “Arabic” and sometimes “Roman”, it is now written in letters for the first time, as if to emphasize its importance, as the nabucco Cuore Caldo Twelve has a destiny which is just as precious as the materials from which it is made. Indeed, RAYMOND WEIL has been committed for a number of years to the fight against cancer and, through this prestige model, will renew its support for the pediatric onco-hematology unit of the University of Geneva-Switzerland Hospital.
A refined and exclusive timepiece, the nabucco Cuore Caldo Twelve exploits a division of choice, involving the subtle blend of the modernity of steel with the lightness of titanium and carbon fiber, without forgetting the warmth and richness of 18 carat rose gold. In the heart of its 46mm diameter case, there are two complications – the split-seconds hand and the 42 hours power reserve indicator – in addition to the mechanical movement with bi-compax automatic winding. Surrounded by an 18 carat rose gold tachymeter bezel, the black dial is illuminated here and there with bright gold touches, the color of the setting sun. Here, the number 12 is replaced by the word “TWELVE” also in rose gold. As for the bracelet, the choice of vulcanized rubber provides the wearer with comfort, robustness and style.
Finally, the screwed down titanium case back enhanced with a sapphire crystal reveals the watch’s mechanical heart with its delicate “côtes de Genève” decorations and fine circular graining. Sold in a special case together with a range of cuff links and pens, the nabucco Cuore Caldo Twelve is a limited edition of 76 units, representing the foundation year of the family brand.
