Nabucco
Nabucco Cello Tourbillon Black Watch, 46mm

stainless steel, black with indexes and cello string decoration

1842-BSF-20001

It offers design features that remind of a cello: hands formed in the shape of a bow, five lines of the musical stave represented in the grooved bezel. The most striking feature is the four tiny strings stretched across the dial of the watch between the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock combining with the f-hole shaped bridges to create the illusion of an instrument in miniature.

Each nabucco Cello Tourbillon watch is 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.

My grandfather’s lifelong love of music combined with my own passion for the cello are the two elements that inspired us to design and develop the nabucco Cello Tourbillon, which is intended as an expression of our brand’s imaginative approach to watch design

Description

 

nabucco Cello Tourbillon: watchmaking expertise and cutting-edge creativity.

This timepiece is RAYMOND WEIL’s first tourbillon skeleton. The brainchild of RAYMOND WEIL CEO Elie Bernheim – the founder’s grandson and a cellist since an early age – the nabucco Cello Tourbillon is a first in the world of luxury watchmaking in taking its design cues directly from this noble instrument.

Made of  titanium, carbon fibre and stainless steel, it shows a very airy design despite a 46mm diameter. The remarkable musical elements of the mechanism were conceived entirely by the RAYMOND WEIL in-house Research and Development department, which was set up by the brand in 1999. Designed to resemble that of a de-constructed cello, both sides of this model are fitted with sapphire crystals, providing a surrealist plunge into a world of transparency and precision: the movement bridges supporting the tourbillon escapement and mainspring barrel. Alongside its undeniable beauty, the tourbillon cage serves to make major precision adjustments and plays its role as the ultimate compensatory element. Beauty appeals and technique reassures in this masterful creation.
