For SIHH 2017, Ulysse Nardin is bolstering its Classic collection with not one, not two, but three new watches. There is the Classico Manufacture with a grand feu enamel dial, the Classico Rooster that honors the upcoming Year of the Rooster, and finally, the Classico Hourstriker that chimes the hours and half-hours. Let us talk you through the three watches here.
The plates and bridges of this movement are just minimally existent. This leaves the movement and tourbillon with the silicon escapement and balance spring the brand is well known for, fully visible from the front and back of the watch.The view from the case back mirrors the dial using the rectangular frame-like bridge supporting the movement. In the front, regions of the movement look almost as if suspended in air, and also the little gears are exposed and delicate-looking. Bridges and bridges do include important structural stability to movements, therefore tourbillons and skeletonized movements like this are really delicate and, needless to say, probably best saved for performing “executive things,” rather than rock climbing or off BMXing. That said, water-resistance is 30m. All things considered – this is, in the context of the high-end watch sector – the price of this Are Ulysse Nardin Watches Good Replica Executive Skeleton Tourbillon Blue is not outrageous. The Rotonde de Cartier Flying Tourbillon, for example, is comparable in a couple of ways, but is greater than double the price tag. For a similarly daring, contemporary kind of skeletonization and sporting experience from Roger Dubuis’ “entry-level” Excalibur Automatic Skeleton, again, the price is a lot higher, and that is sans tourbillon. The Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon Blue looks cool in this colour and size and is priced $38,000. We’ve found that rolling out a ’60s-inspired dive watch in 2017 is a fairly surefire way to turn a few heads. But if Ulysse Nardin, a brand known for complex regatta timers and Freakish innovations takes the plunge, you really have to stop, think twice, and have a good look. For 2017, they’ve introduced the Ulysse Nardin Diver Le Locle view, a straightforward diver with an in-house movement, silicone components, and real vintage vibes. There is just 1 question: will it sink or swim in a sea of dive watches positioned in an exceptionally competitive price bracket? Let us see.
We begin with the new Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture Reference 3203-136-2/E3 that will come with a “grand feu” blue enamel dial. Grand feu is French for “great fire” and refers to a specific technique of preparing the enamel dial. It is trickier to execute because it involves adding more oxides onto the dial and then firing it until the desired colors and motifs appear.
Ulysse Nardin describes the Classico Manufacture Reference 3203-136-2/E3 as having a “translucid quality,” but without seeing the actual watch, it is hard to comment. But given Ulysse Nardin’s mastery of the arts and track record, we have high expectations. The other thing about enamel is that its colors do not fade, which means that the Ulysse Nardin Watch Freak Replica Classico Manufacture Reference 3203-136-2/E3 will retain its blue hue for decades to come.
The Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture Reference 3203-136-2/E3 comes in a 40mm stainless steel case and is water resistant to 30 meters. Case thickness is just 9.6mm, making the watch an excellent choice for dressier occasions.
The Ulysse Nardin Watch Rating Replica Classico Manufacture Reference 3203-136-2/E3 is powered by the in-house Caliber UN-320, which is self-winding and has a silicon hairspring and Ulysse Nardin’s special anchor escapement.
2017 will see the coming of the Year of the Rooster, and to mark this occasion, Ulysse Nardin Watches For Sale Replica will be releasing the Classico Rooster watch. It comes in a 40mm 18k rose gold case and features an intricately crafted dial featuring an enamel rooster. The rooster is crafted using the champlevé technique, in which the dial is carved to form pits where enamel can be added. From the press photos we have received, the rooster looks absolutely brilliant, and we can’t wait to see the actual watch at SIHH 2017.
The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Watch Replica Classico Rooster is limited to just 88 pieces and is powered by Ulysse Nardin’s self-winding Caliber UN-815, which is also COSC-certified. Water resistance is 50 meters.
Finally, we have the Ulysse Nardin Watches India Prices Replica Hourstriker Pin-Up. Ulysse Nardin’s Hourstriker watches are some of the most provocative (just take a look at the possibly NSFW Hourstriker Erotica Jarretiere) and this new Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up is no different.
In the Hourstriker Pin-Up, we have a dancer in suggestive pumps, flowers in her hair, and covered by little more than a peacock. And when the hourstriker function is activated, the peacock’s wings will sweep to reveal the dancer behind.
The dancer is brought to life using acrylic paint that is applied and mixed directly onto the dial. And according to Ulysse Nardin, each dancer takes around 50 to 90 hours to complete.
The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up comes in a 43mm 18k rose gold or platinum case, and water resistance is rated at 30 meters. The movement within is the self-winding Caliber UN-610, which provides 42 hours of power reserve and has the hourstriking mechanism that chimes the hours and half-hours. The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up is limited to 28 pieces.
The Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture is priced at $8,500. The Ulysse Nardin Classico Rooster is $41,700 and limited to 88 pieces. Finally, the Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up is $103,300 in rose gold and $124,200 in platinum and limited to 28 pieces. ulysse-nardin.com
