Ulysse Nardin 170th Anniversary Limited Edition Classico Manufacture

In celebration of 170 years of fine mechanical watchmaking, Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin is launching 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 by the Swiss manufacture, the UN-320 Caliber, with a silicium hairspring and anchor escapement that deliver superior accuracy.

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.

The unique dial is handcrafted in-house at Donzé Cadrans, a member of the Ulysse Nardin group of companies, and a rare specialist in the delicate art of enameled watch dials. The process of "Grand Feu" enamel is a traditional decorative technique mastered by only a handful of craftsmen in the world.

The shimmering white Grand Feu" enamel dial with the Roman numerals displays an intense blue that recalls a calm, cerulean sea. The 40 mm steel case of this Classico Manufacture version is secured with a leather strap.
