Ulysse Nardin Classic Dual Time Enamel

Ulysse Nardin introduces a Dual Time in beautiful enamel with its in-house UN-324 movement and exclusive crown selector.

Part of the Swiss watchmaker’s Classic collection, this Dual Time with a white enamel dial is the ideal traveling companion. Equipped with the patented Dual Time zone feature, it is instantly adjustable both forwards and backwards with a mere push of a button.

These buttons feature at the 8 and 10 o’clock positions. When pressed, the pushers adjust the hour hand to a different time zone while the home time indicator at 9 o’clock continues its 24-hour cycle. An impressive mechanical complication that is very easy to use – one of Ulysse Nardin’s guiding ideals. The time and date setting is another example of the watchmaker’s perpetual quest for innovation in action. The selector is integrated in the crown to change settings without pulling and pushing the crown.
As with many a timepiece from Ulysse Nardin, this Dual Time unites three fundamentals: technical avant-garde with the use of Silicium in the movement; in-house manufacture with its UN-324 caliber entirely designed and produced by the company; and stunning craftsmanship with its pure white Grand Feu enamel dial.

Grand Feu designates an enameling technique that goes back to the 17th century, and that is practiced today only by a handful of craftsmen, including those at Ulysse Nardin specialists Donzé Cadrans. Its delicate beauty has an eternal quality. On the dial, oversized roman numerals and blued hands set off the double date display at 2 o’clock, and the oversized small seconds at 6 o’clock. The self-winding UN-324 manufacture movement with its 48-hour power reserve is set in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 42 mm, water resistant to 30 m, and held by a chic alligator strap.
