Raymond Weil Nabucco Va, Pensiero Watch
I like the deeply engraved Raymond Weil "RW" logo in the crown. The large watch is matched to a black crocodile strap. Price is probably in the $4,000 - $5,500 range when it will be released soon. Last, let me give you one final gem from the press release. "Let the Nabucco Va, Pensiero spirit you away on the wings of freedom." I have decided that these press releases are more or less like Mad Libs when it comes comes down to it. "add brand name here, add adjective here, add animal part here."It does add aesthetic and character to the design, but I feel as though its placement just reaffirms the fact that many Raymond Weil watches are not made for serious watch lovers. And that is OK, we aren't a giant demographic. But satisfy us, and you've pretty much satisfied everyone else as well. Though interestingly enough, Raymond Weil watches are very popular in the US. Probably because of their distribution and comparatively reasonable prices for well-made watches.The Nabucco Va. Pensiero houses a Swiss ETA 7753 automatic chronograph movement. This is basically a modified 7750 with the chronograph subdials in a tri-compax layout and the day of the week indicator removed. The date is still there though. A solid movement that is nothing to be ashamed of. The chronograph pushers are screw down, and there looks to be a helium escape valve on the watch (though I am not really sure why).
