Swiss luxury watch brand Ulysse Nardin unveils a special edition “Year of the Monkey” from its prestigious announces Classico Collection. Monkey is the ninth animal in the Chinese Zodiac and to celebrate the year of monkey as per traditional Chinese calendar, the watchmaker has created a playful timepiece that captures the essential characters of this mischievous animal.
Designed in a comic strip-like style to best capture the lively creature’s character, the dial is the center of attention as the monkey appears to leap through a brush of palm fronds. Its expression is alert, its body is lithe, and the early workings of an impish grin begin to emerge. It is the champlevé method of enameling that brings the artist’s sketch to life.
