In Partnership with GibsonBASELWORLD 2015: Nabucco Limited Edition celebrates the Gibson guitar
Music has always inspired family-owned Raymond Weil for mould-breaking timepieces. The latest offering from the music-loving watchmaker celebrates the one-and-only Gibson guitar, an icon of modern music played by the greatest rock, jazz and blues musicians, from Eric Clapton to U2's The Edge, from Jimi Hendrix to the legendary BB King.
And just as they set the stage alight, the new nabucco steals the limelight with a case whose taut lines are crafted from titanium and steel, a dial circled by six grooves representing the guitar's six strings and proudly bearing the Gibson® logo, and a tachymeter scale around the grey ceramic bezel. Characteristic of Swiss watchmaking expertise and precision, a mechanical automatic movement is the metronome of this latest musical creation, produced in partnership with Gibson Brands, Inc. as a 200-piece limited series.
