Ulysse Nardin Jade “Grand Feu”

Ulysse Nardin Jade is now available in 3 entirely stunning editions with handcrafted enamel dials.

Complex and difficult to achieve, the decorative art of “Grand Feu” enamel is seen on only a handful of timepieces by the world’s most prestigious watchmakers. Here 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. With its innovative crown design: no pulling is required to wind the watch, set the time, or adjust the date backwards 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.  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.
