Ulysse Nardin: 170th Anniversary Limited Edition Classico Manufacture13 July 2016
In celebration of 170 years of fine mechanical watchmaking, Swiss watchmaker Ulysses Nardin presents a limited edition Classico Collection timepiece with a “Grand Feu” Enamel dial.
The Classico Manufacture is driven by an in-house movement entirely conceived and developed in-house, the UN-320 Caliber, with a silicium hairspring and anchor escapement that deliver superior accura- cy.
The movement is set within a classically-designed steel edition timepiece that celebrates a pared-down design of great purity and elegance, at the center of which is the “Grand Feu” enameled dial. On the dial, the hour, minutes, small seconds and date are at 6 o’clock – a feature of the Classico Collection’s different executions.
Crafted in a limited edition of 170 – one for every year of Ulysse Nardin’s existence – the Classico Manufacture enables wearers to easily set the date backwards and forwards by using the stop seconds feature with a mere pulling of the crown; and rely with confidence on the 48-hour power reserve.
In this collectible limited edition Classico, the dial is a shimmering white, with the roman numeral display an in- tense blue that recalls a calm, cerulean sea. Held in its 40 mm steel case with a leather strap, this latest addition to the Classico Collection reveals its pedigree in every detail.
