Ulysse Nardin Jade “Grand Feu” and Jade “Cloisonné”

Ulysse Nardin’s ultra feminine Jade collection welcomes 5 new entirely stunning editions with handcrafted enamel dials.

The exquisite elegance of Jade attains a new level of decorative beauty with the addition of rare enameling techniques. On the dial of the three new Jade “Grand Feu” editions and two new Jade “Cloisonné” editions, enamel works its seductive magic.
On the Jade “Grand Feu”, the gorgeously rich enamel of stunning turquoise meets the swirl of diamonds across the face and on the stainless steel bezel. The stylized indexes are easy to read, revealing Jade’s practical nature. A small date window is surrounded by the sinuous curve of diamonds on the continuous seconds feature, while three diamond drops are part of the crown position indicator.

When it was first introduced in 2013 Jade represented several firsts in Haute Horlogerie. Its UN-310 caliber was the first movement to be designed and produced in-house by Ulysse Nardin specifically for a woman’s watch. And it was the first timepiece to take into account a woman’s delicate manicure when manipulating the settings. With its innovative crown design: no pulling is required to wind the watch, set the time, or adjust the date back-wards or forwards, only a simple turn. A dainty crown position indicator on the dial shows the wearer which setting she is adjusting.

Two more Jade “Grand Feu” editions, in red ruby and mysterious grey, with matching leather straps, complement the highlighted Jade in turquoise enamel with its white strap.

In addition, Ulysse Nardin has created two equally unique “Cloisonné” enamel timepieces. Jade “Lionfish” in rose gold and Jade “Jellyfish” in white gold display all the craftsmanship of the Donzé Cadrans enamel specialists with two magical marine-inspired designs.

While it appears wonderfully decorative, Jade has a deeply practical side, as its crown design attests. Its movement incorporates Silicium components for enhanced precision and durability. It boasts anti-reflective sapphire crystal and case back and a water resistance to 30 meters.
