RAYMOND WEIL, luxury Swiss watchmaker proudly announces its new product collaboration with Gibson Brands, the fastest growing company in the music and sound industries, combining forces to create a very special nabucco timepiece that will be unveiled during Baselworld 2015.

A majestic steel and titanium 46mm diameter case houses a black galvanic dial encircled by six grooves symbolizing the strings of the Gibson SG Standard and displays the Gibson logo and iconic emblem at 12 o’clock. The case is finished with a refined grey ceramic tachometer bezel. The nabucco inspired by Gibson has a bespoke RW5010 mechanical chronograph self-winding mechanism with a 46 hour power reserve and
features twenty-seven jewels.
