Luxury Swiss watchmaker, RAYMOND WEIL, Kings Jewelers and Gibson hosted a private event to celebrate the guitar-inspired nabucco timepiece and the brands’ partnership on October 14th at The Hatchery at Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville. The evening’s proceeds benefited VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

Dot Records’ Drake White & The Big Fire performed an intimate concert and the night also included entertainment by DJ Debonaire. Prior to the event, White visited local Nashville school, Eakin Elementary, just one of the schools across the country where VH1 Save The Music helped restore music education programs with the donation of instruments. During the visit, students learned the chords on the keyboard and the chorus of one of White’ songs. Keeping true to RAYMOND WEIL’s support for the Arts and most importantly, music, RAYMOND WEIL has partnered with VH1 Save The Music Foundation since 2011.

RAYMOND WEIL and Gibson’s partnership and the collaboration timepiece debuted during BaselWorld 2015 and the watch was on display during the event.  Additionally, 10 numbered units, exclusive to Nashville, will be available at Kings Jewelers and Gibson will auction off one guitar.

“We are proud to collaborate with such an iconic music brand as Gibson and to present this unique timepiece honouring both music and high-end watchmaking”, declared Elie Bernheim, CEO RAYMOND WEIL.

Speaking of the partnership, Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO, Gibson Brands said, “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.”         

Paul Cothran, Executive Director of VH1 Save The Music Foundation added, “The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is thrilled to be the benefitting charity of the launch event of RAYMOND WEIL’s guitar-inspired nabucco timepiece. Gibson and RAYMOND WEIL have been spectacular partners ensuring that more students in Nashville and throughout the nation have access to the benefits that can only be gained through robust in-school music programs. We all share a commitment to education excellence and a passion for music and the arts.”
