A Raymond Weil unveiling

NABUCCO is the new exclusively masculine mechanical collection that was unveiled by RAYMOND WEIL at the BASELWORLD 2007 International Watch Fair. This chronograph is the first model by the Geneva watchmaker to come with an imposing 46mm case, water-resistant to a depth of 200m that incorporates a high-tech material: carbon fibre. A sturdy steel case 46mm in diameter. A black dial with check effect. A central zone in relief struck into the dial plate and adorned with 3 screws around the subdials. An appliqué figure 12, and 11 polished and nickelled appliqué indexes with luminescent highlights for optimum legibility day and night. All with the latest contemporary colour scheme.
That's the new look NABUCCO with its unique charisma! With its innovative form and original design, this mechanical self-winding chronograph, carved in steel, displays a 30-minute subdial at 3 o'clock, an hour-counter at 6 o'clock, and a 60-second subdial at 9 o'clock. The date, at 4:30, can be set by a separate push-button on the case at 10 o'clock. The NABUCCO is powered by the Valjoux 7753 tri-compax chronograph movement in line with the standards of high-quality watchmaking (28,800 vibrations per hour – 46-hour power-reserve) and water-resistant to 200m thanks to its crown, push-buttons, screwed-down case-back, and 2.5mm double-sided anti-glare sapphire crystal. There is a striking contrast between the steel and the carbon fibre – a resistant but ultra-light high-tech material used here on a RAYMOND WEIL model for the first time. The firm yet highly flexible bracelet gives the NABUCCO incomparable aesthetic appeal. Each link is worked to help the interplay of polished steel, brushed steel and carbon fibre. The bracelet incorporates the RW signature folding-clasp with double push-piece security, and fits snugly to the wrist for perfect comfort and ergonomics.
The independent family watchmaker has pursued perfection in every detail to make the NABUCCO collection one of unparalleled symmetry and coherence. The carbon fibre on the case echoes that of the bracelet, whose check effect, typical of the material, can also be found on the dial. The fluted push-pieces recall the design of the crown, flanked by a polished steel protection system. RAYMOND WEIL plays on the contrasts between circular/vertical brushed/polished steel on the case, bezel and bracelet. The back of the case harbours the new Brand monogram struck into the steel. The screws on the dial match those to the sides, used to fix the carbon fibre plates.

$100K Watch shows the earth from above

Want the right wristwatch to go with that new $88,000 Vertu phone on your belt? Check out this platinum watch from Swiss timepiece-maker Ulysse Nardin, a one of a kind (or rather, 99 of a kind) gem that gives you a UFO's-eye view of the Earth—all for the bargain price of $100,000.

No, it's not encrusted with jewels and it doesn't do Bluetooth, but the Tellurium J. Kepler Limited Edition watch (only 99 were made) has something you won't find on your everyday Timex: a rotating representation of the globe as it might be seen from above the North Pole, complete with a flexible spring representing the terminator between day and night, plus a perpetual calendar that makes a complete rotation once a year. Oh, and it's water resistant to 30 meters, although I'm not sure how the leather wrist strap will handle salt water.
