Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph

       Raymond Weil is a prestigious watch-making brand, created in the late 70s, by a visionary entrepreneur, who after over 25 years of dedication to the fine art of watch-making, ventured across Europe, at the age of 50, carrying the first watches created by his company in his suitcase, in order to slowly develop a market for his top quality products.

       Nevertheless, in spite of its rather short existence, among the watch-connoisseurs worldwide, the brand’s name soon became associated with uncompromising innovation, outstanding aesthetics and immaculate timekeeping accuracy.

The family-owned company established its well-grounded place among the finest representatives of today’s luxury watch making, being known as a trendsetter, extremely appreciated by the watch experts and enthusiast collectors worldwide.

       Recently the brand brought another superb addition to its iconic Raymond Weil Nabucco collection, a remarkable wristwatch characterized by stylish sporty sophistication and immaculate functionality, the new Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph watch, will be presented at BaselWorld 2010, and impresses, above all, through its powerful masculine charismatic design.

       The watch was actually named after the famous Verdi’s opera “Nabucco”, and its third act chorus “Va, pensiero, sull’ali dorate”, which means go, thought, on golden wings and was created to symbolize creative freedom and individuality.

        The watch features a titanium robust case, measuring 46 mm in diameter, which incorporates a subtly matt-finished bezel fitted with tachymeter scale. The timepiece’s powerful architecture also incorporates screwed-down chronograph pushers, a fluted screwed-down winding crown reliably protected by massif shoulders and a screwed case-back fitted with the brand’s monogram, which provides 200-meters water resistance. Moreover, the case incorporates a protective 2.5 mm synthetic sapphire crystal characterized by remarkable scratch-resistance.

       The timepiece features a sporty well-structured dial fitted with eye-catching textural particularities. The dial’s background is performed in textured light grey, which makes a nice contrast against the watch’s luminescent anthracite hour indices and “12” Arabic numeral hour marker. Moreover, the watch’s raised central section is rendered in dark grey; secured with three screws, it nicely surrounds the chronograph counters.

       At the heart of this remarkable Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph watch, beats a high-precision ETA 7753 self-winding movement which oscillated at a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour, conferring a 2 days approximate power reserve. The reliable mechanism ensures asides from central hours, minutes and seconds, small seconds function, elapsed minutes and hours and a date function.

       Although, we are still expecting the official pricing on the remarkable Raymond Weil Nabucco Va Pensiero Chronograph watch we can add that the watch comes matched with a stylish saddle-stitched crocodile leather strap fitted with titanium folding clasp for optimal reliability.
