Ulysse Nardin Classic Dual Time Enamel Boutique Edition

Ulysse Nardin presents a boutique edition of its Classic Dual Time Enamel timepiece. Limited to 99 pieces, this timepiece 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 eggshell Grand Feu enamel dial.

Realised by the talented craftsmen at Donzé Cadrans, the beautiful dial of the watch has been finished by incorporating the 17th century era Grand Feu enameling technique. On the dial, oversized roman numerals and black hands set off the double date display at 2 o’clock, and the oversized small seconds at 6 o’clock.
Equipped with the patented Dual Time zone feature, this timepiece 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. This impressive mechanical complication is very easy to use.

Further, the time and date setting selector is integrated in the crown in order to change settings without pulling and pushing the crown. 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 leather strap. The Classic Dual Time Enamel is a limited edition of 99 timepieces available exclusively at Ulysse Nardin boutiques.
