Nabucco Intenso 43MM, chronograph elegant and powerful of Raymond Weil

Nabucco Intenso 43MM, chronograph elegant and powerful of Raymond Weil

Power & Design Elegance
Power and design elegance, robustness and lightness of the steel and titanium case… the nabucco Intenso embodies all the values of the RAYMOND WEIL collection, inspired by Nabucco, the famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi. However, this completely new version offers a major variation: certainly an imposing volume, but concentrated into a 43mm case diameter rather than 46mm. Thanks to this compact format, the nabucco Intenso will enable a few more enthusiasts to join the highly elite club of nabucco owners. Fortissima!
The nabucco collection was launched in 2007, under the auspices of the founding family’s 3rd generation. The collection is racy, elegant and powerful, appealing to connoisseurs around the world, regardless of culture. However, they do not all have the opportunity to wear what they really want to, but now things could change, thanks to the new nabucco Intenso, a model whose famous chronograph characteristics are cleverly arranged within its 43mm diameter.
Power & Design Elegance
The case of this entirely new model is three millimeters smaller, but none the less imposing: powerful horns – but with rounded angles to sit comfortably on the wrist – and its perfectly balanced proportions, in satin-finished, steel and titanium. The remaining features of the collection are equally distinctive: the tachymeter transfer on the bezel, the three counters at 3 o’clock (30 minutes), 6 o’clock (12 hours) and 9 o’clock (small seconds), the round date window at 4.30, the robust pushers and the single number 12. However, on this compact model, the phosphorescent number 12 becomes quite majestic and attracts the eye, which then takes in the detailed decoration on the black galvanic dial: the small steel-colored counters and the checkered inner background surrounded by concentric circles. Finally, the blued steel of the chronograph hands contrasts effectively with the chiaroscuro decor. The case is mounted on a black, alligator-style, rubber strap, blending comfort with strength, in complete harmony with the collection.
With this new 43mm model – nabucco Intenso – RAYMOND WEIL is exploiting its nuances, while losing nothing of its intensity. It’s a safe bet that its success will continue to crescendo.
