Raymond Weil hits the right notes with musical Gibson Brands watch
Mar 19, 2015
Luxury Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil has joined forces with music company Gibson Brands, on a new timepiece set to be unveiled during Baselworld 2015.
The special edition Nabucco watch is limited to 200 pieces, inspired by the self-tuning Gibson SG Standard, featuring a black galvanic dial encircled by six grooves symbolizing the strings of the Gibson SG Standard guitar.
The Gibson logo and emblem has also been placed in position at 12 o'clock.
The watch, which has a bespoke RW5010 mechanical chronograph self-winding mechanism with a 46-hour power reserve and features 27 jewels, boasts a steel and titanium 46mm diameter case.
"We are proud to collaborate with such an iconic music brand as Gibson and to present a unique nabucco limited edition of 200 pieces honoring both music and high-end watchmaking," declares Elie Bernheim, CEO of Raymond Weil.
It isn't the first time Raymond Weil has created musical timepieces -- last year the group teamed up with a series of musical talents on a collection of new special edition versions of its popular 'Freelancer' and 'Maestro' models.
Baselworld runs from March 19-26.
