RAYMOND WEIL nabucco Cello Tourbillon

A worthy major new addition to the RAYMOND WEIL nabucco collection, the nabucco Cello Tourbillon watch features fine, clean-cut lines creating a striking contrast with the gentleness of the musical intention conveyed through this model.

It embodies a clever intertwining of watch components evoking the theme of the cello and enlivening the vibrant heart of this mechanical hand-wound movement.

More than a mere coincidence, the entire musical soul of RAYMOND WEIL inspired this model with its rigorous nature, pure lines, gift for performance along with impressive mastery of watchmaking and musical expression.

Both sides of this model have sapphire crystals, providing a surrealist plunge into a world of transparency and precision: the movement bridges supporting the tourbillon escapement and mainspring barrel, for example, take the form of the instrument’s distinctive f-holes, while the slender hands are formed in the shape of a cello bow and the five lines of a musical stave are represented in the grooved bezel.

The four tiny strings which are stretched taught across the dial of the watch between the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, combine with the f-hole shaped bridges to create the illusion of an instrument in miniature.

The remarkable musical elements of the mechanism were conceived entirely by the RAYMOND WEIL in-house Research and Development department, set up by the brand in 1999.

The lightness required for the rotating cage harmoniously echoes the steel and titanium case and features an extremely airy variation, despite its generous 46 mm diameter. Carbon fibre sets the perfect finishing touch, stretching along the black PVD-coated sides of the timepiece.

The watch also features a screw-lock crown that lines up the RAYMOND WEIL logo with the curve of the case. A genuine crocodile leather strap holds the model firmly to the wrist.

Each nabucco Cello Tourbillon watch will be presented in a specially designed box that reflects the musical elements of the watch on a larger scale and echoes the quality and craftsmanship of a traditional, hand-made cello.
