Raymond Weil Nabucco Gibson Limited Edition Watch Review
Monday - 30 March 2015
Raymond Weil announce their collaboration with Gibson Brands with the launch of the Nabucco Gibson Limited Edition timepiece.
Gibon Brands is hailed ‘the fastest growing company in the music and sound industries’, which is ideal for the Raymond Weil musically minded timekeeping experts. Focusing in particular on the self-tuning Gibson SG Standard - a sleek, powerful, contemporary solid body electric guitar - the Limited Edition timepiece embodies the musical instrument in the latest release with design references that capture the essence of the guitar in a watch platform.
Elie Bernheim, CEO Raymond Weil states: “We are proud to collaborate with such an iconic music brand as Gibson and to present a unique nabucco limited edition of 200 pieces honouring both music and high-end watchmaking.”
A black galvanic dial features six even grooves that neatly surround the three counters reflect the strings of the Gibson SG Standard; allowing for the rectangular markings that replace the traditional numbering system to effortlessly become the frets found on an electric guitar. The iconic Gibson logo and emblem sit proudly at 12 o’clock to signify the partnership that was responsible for createing this special edition. A definite black, silver and red colour way portrays a powerful, strong image that is enhanced by the oversized 46mm diameter steel case. Raymond Weil engineered the Nabucco design to be powered by a bespoke RW5010 mechanical chronograph self-winding mechanism with a 46 hour power reserve and features twenty-seven jewels. A sapphire glass caseback, which also celebrates the Gibson relationship exposes the movement exquisitely.
Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson brands declares: “RAYMOND WEIL and Gibson Brands are the perfect combination of excellence and craftsmanship. We are delighted to be aligned with the nabucco line, exceptional timepieces inspired by the highest quality guitars.”
The Raymond Weil Nabucco Gibson design is an infusion of two high quality, powerful instruments that inspire and influence. The edition provides another opportunity for the family led watch company to express their love and passion for music in a watch design, which has established many partnerships internationally.
