The Ulysse Nardin SuperCat concept table clock reflects a new and radical approach to the art of watch-making. A free and futuristic metaphor of a racing catamaran, it highlights the expertise of the Manufacture in an unprecedented manner. Ulysse Nardin has pooled its talents to create the SuperCat Concept, an extraordinary table clock where the movement becomes the giant engine of a futuristic boat. The work of one of the Manufacture’s young watchmakers and loosely inspired by the competition catamaran of Artemis Racing – which Ulysse Nardin is sponsoring for the America’s Cup – the SuperCat Concept combines sailing, sleek design and micromechanics to recreate the magic of a luxury timepiece.
The taut curves and progressive shapes of the SuperCat match the hydrodynamic design of the America’s Cup sailboats, which rank among the fastest in the world. Its profile meets the constraints imposed by the water, wind and speed while retaining a sense of purity, transparency and absoluteness.
Unprecedented in its design, the power reserve indicator is revealed on the rear deck. In fact, the remaining energy is not only indicated in days as usual, but in days and hours by means of two counters. The first, small and featuring red indications, displays the days of power reserve, while the hand of the larger counter indicates the additional hours remaining. The motor system, the double time indicator and the power reserve indicator are protected by a cockpit made of transparent technological resin.
