Raymond Weil, a Swiss brand that turns 40 years old next year introduces its first tourbillon timepiece – the Nabucco Cello Tourbillon. Created in partnership with Swiss manufacturer, Tec-Ebauches, this tourbillon-based timepiece connects two themes that the brand is keen to promote: its ongoing association with music, and its ambition to join the ranks of the most innovative and expert watchmakers. Raymond Weil’s CEO Elie Bernheim who is also an avid music lover and accomplished cellist himself was personally involved in creating the concept for the watch, which draws inspiration from his passion for music.

The cello theme is evident most strikingly on the front of the watch with four thin “strings” stretched tautly across the dial between the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, behind the central hour and minute hands and above the tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock. Additionally, the diamond-tipped hands take the shape of a cello’s bow, while the bezel is adorned with five grooved lines representing a musical stave. On the reverse, through a clear sapphire caseback, you’ll also notice the movement bridges, which support the tourbillon escapement and the mainspring barrel, in the shape of a cello’s distinctive f-holes.

Speaking of the barrel, it holds an impressive 105 hours of power reserve when fully wound. The musical elements of the movement, which Raymond Weil has dubbed Caliber RW1842, were conceived by the company’s in-house R&D department, which was established in 1999.
Raymond Weil Nabucco Cello Tourbillon is limited to only 10 pieces, priced at £27,500 ($41,270).
