RAYMOND WEIL’s emblematic collection nabucco is originally inspired by Giuseppe Verdi’s famous opera. In 2014, using ceramics on its bezels for the first time, RAYMOND WEIL reinterprets nabucco and creates nabucco Rivoluzione II, an exceptional timepiece featuring distinguished lines and a strong personality.
The nabucco collection was born in 2007, thanks to the impetus of the founding family’s third generation, which joined the Company in 2006. Both powerful and elegant, the collection appeals to connoisseurs around the world.
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.
For the first time, ceramics has been used in a nabucco to get 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 3o’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, RAYMOND WEIL offers the nabucco Rivoluzione in a special box, together with the superb SENNHEISER earphones offering an unmatched acoustic quality.
