Raymond Weil Breaks the Chains of Convention with the New Nabucco Cuore Caldo

Raymond Weil is releasing the New Nabucco Cuore Caldo, its very first split-second chronograph with power reserve indicator. The New Nabucco Cuore Caldo is limited, only 500 pieces will be available. Each timepiece will be numbered (001/500 to 500/500 on the case back).
The blend of 18k rose gold, polished steel, ultra light titanium and carbon fiber is unique and intensly appealing. The more common current trend is rose gold with carbon fiber; however, Raymond Weil has incorporated stainless steel which add a polished stylish look. It is a watch that stands out in the crowd, as a result of its rugged beauty.

The placement of the power reserve is slightly off center at the 6h30 and displayed within a 18k carrot gold "slice of pie" frame. In addition the 30-minute subdial at the 3 o' clock and 60 second subdial at 9 have been cleverly arranged thereby adding a mysterious geometry to the watch, which is pleasing to the eye. RAYMOND WEIL’s team of engineers and designers been able to playfully associate a power-reserve indicator at 6h30 with a 30-minute subdial at 3 o’clock and a 60-second subdial at 9.

Nabucco cuore caldo utilizes a ETA bi-compax 7750 mechanical movement with self-winding chronograph, as well as two other complications:

a split-second hand - the first time in Raymond Weil's history.
42-hour power-reserve indicator.

The titanium screw down case back with sapphire crystal exposes the fine mechanical movement with Côtes de Genève décor and circular-graining's.

The strap is vulcanized rubber with black leather inserts and a Raymond Weil steel folding clasp with double push pin security.

The Watch is available in the near future.
