Elegant and useful are the perfect words to describe the Ulysse Nardin marine mega yacht timepiece. Ulysse Nardin is a vertically integrated complete watchmaking Manufacture that has built several pillar collections around the water, including its Marine line and Diver line of watches. By combining this marine environment with its pioneering spirit in terms of new materials and technology, Ulysse Nardin has developed a complicated movement for this modern watch that has a patent-pending. As the name suggests, it is dedicated to the owners of sailboats and luxury cruisers, and, just like their vessels, pairs technical versatility and beauty with the raw emotion of the ocean wave.
This superlative creation is a perfect allegory of a voyage by sea and epitomizes the contemporary spirit of nautical luxury lifestyle, masterfully embodied through an avant-garde watch design that could only have been created by Ulysse Nardin. Crafted in platinum and with only 30 pieces in the entire world, this authentic flagship of the watchmaking fleet is created by a Manufacture that has specialized in making timepieces for sailors since 1846. Its generous dimensions are displayed on the wrist with a playful elegance.
With its diameter of 44 mm, this luxury watch is an instrument specially conceived for the modern adventurer who models himself on Captain Nemo. Magnificently reproduced in 3D, the bows of a luxury vessel seem to surface from a pool of white gold. To guarantee perfect timing, this construction is regulated by a flying tourbillon. To ensure the watch is firmly anchored in the nautical world, the cage of the flying tourbillon is decorated with a propeller, its blades specially honed to guarantee the highest level of performance for latest-generation yachts.
The timepiece’s art form is highlighted by the fashioned anchor and its chain, which only move in response to the crown. Overall, it comprises 504 components and was constructed by the very best watchmakers at the brand, alongside Christophe Claret Manufacture, a brand universally recognized for designing innovative watch complications in its workshops. Innovative and completely visible through its transparent case-back, the movement of this timepiece is designed to resemble the engines found in a vessel’s engine room.
